Microsoft Teams desktop app coming to new Office 365 ProPlus installs

As you may already be aware, Microsoft Teams is the new standard for instant collaboration and communication for Office 365 subscribers. As the service continues the transition from the venerable Skype of Business, many users are left to download and install the desktop client on their own.

In an effort to improve and streamline user’s initial experience with Teams, we’re making an enhancement so that the desktop Teams app will now be downloaded automatically when new users with Office 365 ProPlus licenses first download the Office Pro Plus apps. We’ll begin rolling this feature out soon.
