We already know that Microsoft Teams has seen incredible growth during the pandemic. Subsequently, it has exploded over the past six months. During the investor event, Satya Nadella, shared how Microsoft Teams now has 115 million daily active users. This is an increase of more than 50% from the 75 million Microsoft reported almost six months ago.
Microsoft Teams numbers continue to sweep
However, it’s hard to compare Microsoft’s numbers with its rivals. Zoom and Google both report daily active participants, which means that a single user can be counted multiple times during different meetings over the course of a day. Google revealed that it had 100 million daily active participants earlier this year, and Zoom said it had 300 million daily active participants. Slack also saw some growth earlier this year.
Microsoft has constantly improved its teams throughout the pandemic. The new Together mode has been specially designed for meetings during the pandemic. Allow participants to sit practically next to each other. The NBA used the teams feature for basketball games during the summer.
In addition, they also opened the doors of the teams to third-party applications, made the service available to consumers. And they’ve promised features like breakout rooms by the end of the year. Nadella also revealed today that LinkedIn now has 722 million users. LinkedIn has steadily grown and increased Microsoft’s revenue since the company acquired the social network for $ 26 billion in 2016.
