Microsoft Teams brings you access to chat, providing a variety of ways for you to connect with other people, stay up to date on projects, share your thoughts, and express yourself, regardless of whether you’re at work, at home, or while on the go.
Among the three chat types in Teams, you’ll find:
- One-on-one chats: Getting to know people on an individual basis.
- Group chats: Having a conversation with a group at once.
- Meeting chats: In order not to interrupt the speaker when asking a question.
To get started, follow these ten tips:
- Send your first message and start a chat.
- To make sure that the chat is a group conversation, you can add teammates to it.
- The best way to express your feelings about a message is to choose a chat reaction.
- Bring some fun to a conversation by using an emoji or a GIF.
- Add a meme to your message to let people know what you are feeling.
- If you want to share information through your chat message, you can attach a file to it.
- Grab the attention of someone with an @mention.
- If you want your message to be seen and addressed as soon as possible, mark it as Important.
