You can now join Microsoft Teams meetings from Slack

Slack users can now launch Microsoft Teams calls right from within the popular workplace chat app as the company has launched a new app to allow them to do so.

The Microsoft Teams Call beta app has arrived just a few days after Slack first revealed that it was working on the integration. However, Slack users will only be able to launch Teams calls from within the app as opposed to participating in them directly from within Slack.

Slack users will even be able to set Microsoft Teams Calls as their default calling provider and see who is in a call before joining a meeting. Additionally event reminders from the Outlook Slack app will support the ability to join Microsoft Teams calls directly from Slack.

VoIP integration

Alongside its Microsoft Teams integration, Slack also announced that it is adding VoIP phone integration with Zoom, Cisco Jabber, RingCentral and Dialpad. Now Slack users will be able to use these VoIP services to call phone numbers directly from within the app's interface.

According to the company, over the past month its chat app has seen almost a 350 percent growth in calls made or received in its app. Slack also broke users records last month as demand surged for its chat app as many employees are now working from home due to the ongoing global crisis.

All of the new calling features in Slack are now available for users to try out for themselves and you can enable the new Microsoft Teams app in Slack on the company's website.
