Effective March 27th, Microsoft’s New Teams desktop app was released in preview mode and it is receiving great reviews. Microsoft pretty much rebuilt Teams from ground up and by doing so it has several enhancements making it faster, simpler, smarter, and even more flexible than the classic Teams desktop app.

The new Microsoft Teams is now 2 to 3 times faster, depending on what you’re doing with the app, and if that wasn’t enticing enough, it also consumes up to 50% less resources. The new Teams has several end-use enhancements, as well as enhancements for the IT Pro who is responsible for installing, updating, and uninstalling Teams.
