Teams is the best one

Teams is working well for us. Hated it when we moved to it a few months ago but it’s been a godsend in this post-apocalyptic hellscape.

We keep getting video updates from our CEO from his really, really fancy home office that absolutely nobody can listen to because the sound cards are disabled on all of our laptops lest anyone try to use them to do anything fun.

Oh and lol at the idea of us having Skype, Teams or anything similar.

is it much diff to skype?

Teams is the best.

  • video calls like zoom
  • meetings are good and integrates nicely with outlook
  • chat is ok
  • channels a good way to organise things
  • audio quality is good
  • great for working collaboratively on onedrive office files
  • app on smart phones is good

Notifications are the only limiting issue

Much easier to handle group meetings with it IMO and tie it in to calendar appointments etc. The phone app is good as well.

Hahaha! The desktop windows right? Either way, HAHAHAHA!

Ordered a headset for those all important video calls, it’s fucking massive, I look like an air-traffic controller. Gonna be getting pelters off the team in the chat.
