Microsoft Teams users, this one is for all of you. We know that the Teams app is not hard to get at all. but the Redmond tech giant will further facilitate adoption.

The company had previously updated the 365 Roadmap with a new entry signaling the upcoming release of Teams in the Microsoft Store.

Until this process was finalized, the only way to get the ultra-popular messaging and conferencing app is to download it from the official website.

Download Teams directly from the Microsoft Store

Teams in the Microsoft Store will provide Windows 10 and 11 users with a simpler and more convenient way to install the program.

The software will thus support work, school, and consumer accounts on Windows 10, and only work or school accounts on Windows 11.

By reading the available information, one might even think that Microsoft does not plan to make Teams less confusing than it currently is.

We’re saying that because, right now, the tech giant has two versions of the Teams app. There’s a regular one that you can download from the official website and one built-in Windows 11.

Redmond developers state that the latter is an alternative to mainstream messaging platforms and voice and video calling solutions for regular customers.

It is also known that Windows 10 has no built-in Teams capabilities, meaning that the upcoming Microsoft Store version will allow regular customers to use the app for their daily home needs.

That being said, Windows 11 users will have to stick to the built-in Chat app you can find on the taskbar.

The giant tech company is also working on calendar statuses and the ability to enable Together mode for all participants.
