Chat with people in Teams, even if they are not using the app

When starting a group chat with your friends or family, you don’t have to worry about your conversations being lost if they don’t have Teams. That’s why we are previewing a new feature in the Teams apps for iOS and Android that allows you to chat with contacts who don’t have Teams installed on their phones. Just type in the contact’s name or phone number to add it to a group chat and if you are not in Teams you can receive responses and send them to the group via SMS, while the conversation continues to flow 1. SMS participants will also get a link Downloading the Teams app on their phones makes it easy to get started with Teams and makes the most of rich media messaging and chat via GIFs, photos, or videos.

This feature is available in preview for users in the US and Canada. You can learn more about this feature here.
