You think Zoom, and you think video calls. For millions worldwide, it’s a tool they rely on daily at work.
But for productivity, collaboration, and workplace integration (as well as video calls), it’s Microsoft Teams that are leading the way. Its tight integration with other Microsoft 365 services makes it so easy.
Now Zoom is looking for a piece of that action with the launch of a whole suite of features and services. They’re designed to take on Teams and Slack head-to-head.
These include email, a calendar app, and a virtual co-working space called Zoom Spots. Meanwhile, many upgrades to the Zoom One platform aim to improve collaboration, keep chats flowing, and keep projects moving.
While it feels like a logical step for the video conferencing giant, it remains to be seen how widely adopted the new services will be. And before we recommend it to our clients, we’ll want to know that the levels of support, reliability, and security are bulletproof.
Many businesses are already committed to Microsoft Teams, which releases its improvements almost every week. But this is an interesting new development, and we’ll be watching what happens carefully.
