The Microsoft Teams app has finally made its way to the Microsoft Store app store.
This new Progressive Web App (PWA) version of Microsoft Teams was announced yesterday during Build 2018 where it was revealed that it would first launch in a public preview for Windows 10 S devices.
Despite being initially restricted to Windows 10 S though, the app can still be downloaded on a regular Windows 10 tablet or PC, it just won’t grant any functionality after logging in.
Here’s the official, very detailed, Microsoft Store description for the app.
Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 S is your chat-centered workspace in Office 365. Instantly access all your team’s content from a single place where messages, files, people and tools live together. This is a preview version, so bear with us while we do some fine-tuning. (You’ll need Windows 10 RS4 or above.)
