Workplace from Meta gets a Teams integration

Access important information from Workplace within Teams.

Organizations large and small alike depend on a number of online collaboration tools to get things done. That’s why Meta’s Workplace has announced two new integrations with Microsoft Teams.

The first integration between Workplace and Teams gives employees access to Workplace content within Teams, so they don’t have to switch back and forth between the two apps. Not only will this help increase productivity, but it will also make it easier for employees to stay on top of the latest information and provide additional opportunities for company-wide feedback and engagement.

CVP of Product and Engineering for Microsoft Teams, Jeff Teper explained in a blog post how these new integrations build on the shared vision of both companies:

“One thing I’ve learned from the pandemic is that companies don’t rely on just one tool to get their jobs done, so it’s our responsibility as leaders in the space to make sure the tools they use integrate and work with. work together. We have a shared vision to provide choice and flexibility to our customers, so it made sense that we came together to help our mutual customers unlock collaboration and break the silos within their organizations.”

Stream Teams meetings

Meta’s Workplace also adds the ability to stream from Teams Meetings to Workplace groups, so employees can watch live meetings and events on whatever app they’re using. However, they can also catch up on a meeting or event after it has happened by viewing a recording on Workplace.

These new integrations deepen the relationship between Microsoft and Meta and also make it easier for their users. Last year, the two companies announced Microsoft Azure AD integrations for work accounts to help companies better manage their metatools. At the same time, Meta announced last month that Microsoft’s video conferencing software would be available on Meta Portal in December of this year.

Teams and Workplace customers can try these new integrations for free, and organizations will be able to stream meetings and broadcasts from Teams in Workplace starting next year.
