Microsoft Teams is a tool for group chat that is included with our Office365 environment. Teams works as a channel of communication that fits between email and Zoom. It is less formal and more real-time than email and it is quicker for short chats than organizing a Zoom meeting. Each mode has benefits and adding Teams is not a replacement for email or Zoom.
