Personal Teams accounts now available on Windows 10 and Mac

The new unified Teams experience is now available for personal accounts on Windows 10 and Mac, bringing all your Teams accounts, whether personal, work, or school, together. To add or access additional accounts, select your profile picture at the upper right corner of Teams after you sign in.

Connect your community

The new Teams app on Windows 10 and Mac gives you desktop access to Communities. With Communities, you can organize all your groups, such as your fantasy football league, your homeowner’s association, or your school’s parent organization, in one place. Community members can engage in discussions, share files and photos, join video calls, plan events, and more from the Teams desktop or mobile apps. Check out this blog post to learn more and get started: Communities in Microsoft Teams.

There are two ways to use Communities in Teams:

  1. If you want to work together and get things done in your group, you can opt to keep your community private and only accessible by invitation. Using your community calendar, you can conveniently set up events for your community members to participate in.
  2. If you want to talk about any topic with people who share your interests, you can make your community public and open for other Teams users to see. If you’re hosting community events, you can invite anyone to join, even if they don’t use Teams!

Here are four Communities you can join today to experience Teams Communities first-hand:

Easily create and join any Teams meeting

When you access Teams with a personal account, you can schedule free meetings (up to 60 minutes and 100 participants) with anyone, anytime. When joining a meeting, you can choose the Teams account that you want to join with. For example, you may want to join your school’s PTA meeting with your personal account instead of your work account. When you join a meeting with your Teams account, you have access to the meeting chat, which is available for ongoing conversation before, during, and after the meeting. You also have the option to join a meeting as a guest without signing in.

Get started today!
