Microsoft added a raft of new features to its Teams group chat platform this week, making it easier to interact with third-party apps and find new services through an app directory. The update, Microsoft said, is its biggest single release of new functionality since Teams launched last year.
The launch of the Teams app store means it is now possible to search and discover apps and services to integrate with the chat platform. Users can find apps by searching by name, category or integration type, such as bots. The move brings Teams in line with rival Slack, which launched its own app directory in 2015.
