Why Microsoft

When it comes to features, both Zoom and Teams enable online meetings, chats, calls, screen sharing, and file sharing. The difference between the two is really Microsoft’s integration between Teams and its Office 365 stack. This enables Microsoft Teams to truly be a one-stop-shop for many organizations. This also allows for seamless collaboration, backups, and file search. However, going some way to balance out Microsoft’s Office365 integration, Zoom and Slack feature a wide-ranging partnership and set of technical integrations.
