Microsoft has revealed that Teams now has 115 million daily active users, representing an increase of more than 50 percent from six months ago.
Towards the start of the pandemic, the tech giant reported having 75 million daily active users of its web conferencing service.
Since then, Microsoft Teams has implemented several new features, such as its ‘Together Mode’, which was designed specifically for meetings taking place in the era of the pandemic. Microsoft also partnered with the NBA to provide fans with a virtual seat for the games.
Microsoft’s new statistic cannot be used to compare its success with that of its rivals, mainly because both Zoom and Google report daily active “participants” rather than “users.” This means that a single user could be counted multiple times a day by attending different meetings.
Earlier this year, Google said it had 100 million daily active participants, while Zoom said it had 300 million daily active participants.
Microsoft plans to roll out more features on the platform by the end of the year, such as meeting rooms.
