Microsoft Teams has already surpassed 145 million daily active users.
The instant messaging and communication platform Microsoft Teams has just reached 145 million daily active users, the Redmond company announced today.
This represents an increase of 26% since October 2020, when Microsoft revealed that Teams had reached 115 million daily active users during the pandemic. A significant number during a situation that has greatly increased the use of this platform as well as its rivals Hangouts, Slack, or Zoom.
To become aware of the meteoric growth in the use of Teams, it is enough to remember that just over a year ago, at the beginning of the pandemic, Microsoft only counted 32 million daily active Teams users. Just a few weeks later, with virtually the entire planet confined to the home and with the spread of telecommuting, the figure had more than doubled to 75 million daily active users.
This was thanks in part to an aggressive strategy on the part of Microsoft, which from the early stages of the confinement was determined to promote the adoption of Teams and the widespread use of the cloud.
Other rival platforms such as Google Hangouts and Zoom do not disclose their daily active user data, but it is estimated that over the last year Zoom has achieved up to 300 million daily active users, Google around 100 million, and Slack, a long way behind, just over 12.5 million.
