After an announcement at Build 2020 in May, and a slow rollout starting last month, Microsoft has just officially announced that the new Lists app in Microsoft Teams is now generally available. The company says that the new experience should now be available for all commercial and all government customers to enjoy.

In case you didn’t already know, Lists is one of the newest apps for the Microsoft 365 subscription service. It’s not to be confused with Microsoft To-Do, and is designed for the workplace, and tracking information around your work life. The Teams app also superpowers the lists feature of SharePoint online into a new experience. You can see a summary of the features in the video below.

To access Microsoft Lists in Teams, all you need to do is click the existing icon for Planner. This will then give you the ability to start Teams conversations alongside a list item, and so much more. We invite you to check out our explainer post for more information.
