Microsoft Teams is a chat-based application meant to be an extension to the Office 365 office suite promoted by the giant. Its main purpose is to help teams in a business orientated environment better communicate and share the progress of current projects so that all team members are up to date and connected.
While people can currently check out the preview version of the software, it was noticed that Microsoft Teams isn’t currently part of the Windows Store. This raised questions since the application was expected to make a debut on Microsoft’s online store.
However, a recent session of Ask Me Anything took place in which anxious followers of Microsoft Teams development didn’t hesitate to ask whether or not users would get to see the work efficiency boosting program on the Windows Store.
Microsoft confirmed that they would be making it available, although they did not specify when that exact moment will come. Since no official date was shared with the public, speculation pointed to a possible early 2017 addition to the Windows Store.
We are working on that. We will be in Windows Store via Desktop Bridge which will enable capability to have Win 10 notifications and live tile updates
This scenario is quite plausible as by the time we reach this release date, Microsoft Teams will have also left its Preview phase and gone on to full-retail mode.
Microsoft users that weren’t completely sold by the rumor will have to unfortunately wait a bit longer until Microsoft makes an official announcement about when Teams will become available in the Store.
