The Redmond firm had pulled out all the stops with TV commercials, public transport ads and so on. As a true collaborative tool, the software has become a bit of a symbol of teleworking around the world, especially in Europe.

As the software is included in the commercial versions of Microsoft Office 365, many companies already subscribed to the Microsoft service have naturally chosen Teams. A logical choice both financially and organizationally, as the deployment of Teams is already optimized by its presence in Office 365 products.

In addition, to help companies to organize themselves more easily during the epidemic, Microsoft offers them a free license of Teams for a period of 6 months. The drawback is that demand is extremely high and the Redmond firm may not have anticipated such a strong craze.
