With Microsoft Teams, you can now use more workplace apps directly in meetings.

Microsoft is introducing the ability to integrate popular workplace apps like Asana into meetings on its Teams collaboration platform. Team meetings were previously limited to chats and channel communications, but now users can integrate 20 new apps into their meetings. For example, you can discuss and change a project built in Asana directly with others in a Teams meeting.

The new meeting apps join the more than 700 already available in the Teams App Store, Microsoft said.

The company also makes its Power Platform, which provides low-code tools to build and deploy apps, chatbots, and workflows, directly within Teams. The Power Apps app for Teams is a maker studio where users can manage app data and connections and build and modify app interfaces.

The Power Automate app for Teams has a workflow designer and templates to help users automate routine tasks, and the Power Virtual Agents app for Teams allows users to build, deploy, and manage low-code bots.

In addition, Microsoft makes its Dataverse for Teams, a low-code data platform, widely available for use in Teams to help administrators manage the data used to build apps and other processes in Teams.

Microsoft Teams now has 115 million daily active users, up more than 50 percent from just six months ago. While Teams is more of a Slack competitor, it has added a sle sle of new videoconferencing features to take advantage of the number of people working from home because of the pandemic to better compete with Google Meet, Zoom and others. Microsoft has added a Together mode that allows participants to virtually sit side by side, and it has made more third-party apps available for use during Teams meetings.
