My other half uses Teams frequently in training others with her job - It's a lumbering program that feels half finished & leaves large files behind. However it really does its job & saved companies a fair bit (and lockdown issues) as they are using the users heating, electricity / internet rather than a real room - I just have to remember to wear appropriate clothing while she is on Teams.

Yes, it's the rise of Teams this year. It sometimes feels like a half-finished product, but they are constantly improving it.
I think this year it finally gets the full attention of Microsoft because of its enormous and widespread use.
But for me it's an indispensable work tool and my kids absolutely need it for school now in the second lockdown period in the Netherlands.
