Teams Won't Replace Email but It Can Reduce Email Traffic
The Notion that Teams Will Replace Email
Given its progress since its launch in November 2016 and Microsoft's focus on Teams as the "hubwork for teamwork within Office 365,? Teams should be of interest to any Office 365 tenant. However, the idea voiced by some commentators that Teams will replace email is more debatable. Because so many variables exist, this is a tricky question, including personal preference, the desktop environment, organizational culture, and even the age of a user.
Stripping those factors out, let's look at some of the practicalities of using Teams to replace email in the full understanding that messaging is only one of the ways that members can communicate within a team. Apart from audio and video capabilities, Teams supports a range of connectors, bots, and tabs to expand the ways that people receive and consume information. Our comparison therefore focuses on a narrow slice of the complete Teams picture.
