What is Teams?

Teams is the chat-based workspace in Office 365 that makes it easy to have conversations, host virtual meetings, share files, and get work done with your colleagues on any device. You can even invite students or external contacts to participate in meetings when desired. 

Teams integrates well with other Office 365 applications by providing features like cloud storage through OneDrive and SharePoint, easy access to your calendar, and of course, the ability to create department or project teams.
