Microsoft Teams, the future of Skype?

Microsoft Teams

A few hours ago, Microsoft, together with Nadella, presented its latest tool, its latest software focused on the business world. This software is called Microsoft Teams and pretends to be an alternative to Slack and successor to Microsoft Skype for Business.

Microsoft Teams will be a telecommunications software for companies that will be available for the main platforms and that will connect not only the work team but also the workgroup with the main Office apps, in this case Office 365.

Microsoft Teams will be available for all platforms and will be built into Microsoft Office 365

At the moment Microsoft Teams is not available to everyone, but yes, we have a preview, an unstable version that is available for both Windows and Mac and Android. Will be soon available for iOS and Windows Phone, but the final version will feature all platforms.

Microsoft Teams will not only be offered within the Office 365 package but also will be compatible with Skype and other Microsoft appsInteresting utility for those who are freelancers and do not want to change Skype for another app for a client or project.

In any case, it seems that Microsoft Teams will compete with Slack, a tool that is gaining a lot in the field of business communications, but Will it replace any more app? It is clear to think that Microsoft Teams to replace Skype for Business but Will it also replace Skype? 

Possibly in the not too distant future such a union is a reality, meanwhile, it seems that Microsoft Teams will be one more part of Office 365, for which we will have to have an official account and this makes it more difficult for Microsoft Teams to expand among small businessesAlthough if we consider that it is incorporated into Microsoft services, Microsoft Teams seems a great alternative to Slack Do not you think?
