Microsot experienced great growth in Teams services at the beginning of the Corona pandemic and has continued to increase over the past six months.
In an earnings report with investors, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella revealed that Microsoft Teams currently has 115 million daily active users.
The figure increased by more than 50% from the 75 million the company reported nearly six months ago.
However, it is difficult to compare Microsoft’s numbers with its competitors. Both Zoom and Google report daily active participants, meaning one user can be counted multiple times through different meetings in a day.
Google revealed it had 100 million daily active participants as of earlier this year. Meanwhile Zoom says it already has 300 million daily active participants.
Microsoft continues to improve Teams’ capabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The new Together Mode is designed specifically for pandemic-era meetings that allow participants to sit side by side virtually. The NBA uses the Team feature for basketball games during the summer.
Microsoft has also opened teams doors to third-party apps, provides services to consumers, and promised features such as breakthrough space by the end of the year.
In the same report, Nadella also revealed LinkedIn now has 722 million users. LinkedIn has grown gradually and increased Microsoft’s revenue since the company acquired the social network for USD 26 billion in 2016.
