Microsoft is also integrating Workplace into Teams, which will enable Teams users to access Workplace content through an app within Teams. The app can be optionally pinned to the Teams navigation bar and will include a homepage of Workplace content. Microsoft Teams admins will also be able to mark content as important to showcase it in the Workplace app.

Head of Microsoft 365 collaboration Jeff Teper said: “One thing I’ve learned … there’s not going to be a one and only communications tool on the planet. People are going to choose a number of tools, so I think it’s on us as responsible vendors to make sure they can integrate and interoperate.”

 Workplace can already integrate into SharePoint, OneDrive, and Microsoft’s Office 365 suite. Meta has also integrated Workplace into Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory, and it quickly became one of the top 10 apps for the service.

Microsoft Teams is also arriving on the Meta Portal device in December, allowing people to use video calling in Teams. This latest Teams and Workplace integration goes live today, with businesses able to share Workplace content to Teams. The livestreaming of Teams meetings into Workplace will be available in early 2022.
