External access for Microsoft Teams slated for June

Microsoft Teams is significantly changing the way businesses think about collaboration as I have detailed previously:

The modern way of collaboration using Microsoft Teams

but we still need to keep in mind that it is all still relatively new.

One of the most requested enhancements, as you can see from the above post on Uservoice is to allow external access to Microsoft Teams.

Good news is the reply posted by Microsoft shown above. They have committed to a date for this feature addition and that date should be in June! Pretty quick eh?

It will be amazing to think of all the collaboration opportunities that will open up once Microsoft Teams is available to third parties. This is going to make the product bigger and more successful than it already is.

My advice? If you haven’t started looking at Teams you really should be.
