Microsoft Teams Passes 115 Million Daily Active Users

Simple math shows that the company was pacing at about 8 million new users per month or growth of about 53%.

While the pandemic has put a considerable amount of pressure on nearly every business on the planet, Microsoft, and its portfolio of solutions, were uniquely positioned to be one of the few winners of the massive migration from in-person to remote operations. Teams, being the centerpiece of the Microsoft collaboration story, has continued to benefit from the ‘new normal’ of the remote workforce.

With Skype for Business officially going away in the near future, the adoption of Teams should continue to grow as those customers migrate to the new platform. The key for Microsoft is to make Teams the new ‘sticky’ application inside of Office 365 and all signs are pointing to the fact that this application is becoming the new Excel.
