Microsoft Added 450 New Teams Features Over the Last Year


Microsoft’s latest earnings call painted a somewhat gloomy picture for the company, with Microsoft missing earnings projections for the first time since 2016. But Microsoft still generated $51.9 billion in total revenue and 16 $.7 billion in net profit on $20.5 billion in operating profit. That’s the money side of things, and that doesn’t mean the company wasn’t busy beefing up its services. As noted by ZDnetComment, officials also gave investors a bit of a boost on Teams’ momentum, saying they’ve added more than 450 features over the past year.

To be clear, Microsoft did not specifically share any new Teams monthly active user stats during the investor call. This was last reported at 270 million monthly active users in January, but the company instead focused on smaller stats on the collaboration service. In addition to the new feature stat, Microsoft said the following, as noted by ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley.

  • Teams Phone now has over 12 million PSTN users, nearly twice the number a year ago
  • Over 60% of Fortune 500 companies have chosen Teams Rooms to connect in their hybrid workplaces
  • 25% of Fortune 500 companies use the Viva employee experience platform, which is powered by Teams

It’s unclear what “Teams capabilities” means, but it can cover things across chat, meetings, integrations with Microsoft Viva, and more. Teams has been part of Microsoft’s success amid the pandemic, and Microsoft has even shared that Teams takes part in “all categories,” so things must be booming for the company, even without specific numbers to share.
