Since many companies have stopped all travel due to the Corona virus, Microsoft is offering the use of Microsoft Teams–the business and collaboration tool par excellence–free of charge beginning on March, 10. We give it a thumbs up!


Microsoft Teams is a widely-used solution for collaboration and communication within teams and other groups whose members aren’t necessarily at the same place. Main Features are:

  • Video and chat function
  • Working together on documents in real time
  • Sharing files
  • Newsfeeds
  • Meeting Planner

The software is part of the Microsoft Office-365 package and can be configured individually for every team. The regular price is €10,50 per user and month.

Since many employees at numerous companies are already working from home or cannot travel due to the virus and the isolation wave, Microsoft is offering the gift of temporarily using the premium version of Microsoft Teams without a license to everyone who isn’t a Microsoft Teams user to date.
