Hot on the heels of Windows 11 being thrust into the spotlight, it seems we have another major version of a Microsoft product coming up on the horizon: Microsoft Teams 2.0. That’s not its official name. However, it is the easiest way to refer to the app recently explored and publicly discussed by Brad Sams over on Petri.
Teams 2.0 is not available right now for download. Sams, in his report, said he was able to try out an early build. He also packed screenshots to accompany the details of his findings. Here are the key takeaways:
- Minimalistic UI
- Same general design as Teams 1.0
- Cannot login with Microsoft 365 account (for now)
- Light, dark, high contrast, desktop-syncing theme options
- Teams 2.0 and 1.0 notification controls are similar
For the full rundown of what’s currently on the table with Teams 2.0, check out Sams’ report. As for when you can get your hands on the updated Teams experience, that is unknown. It remains unclear as to when a preview build such as this one will become available to the public.
