Microsoft recently updated the Microsoft 365 Roadmap with a new entry signaling the upcoming release of Teams in the Microsoft Store. Currently, the only way to get the messaging app is to download it from the official website. Teams in the Microsoft Store will provide Windows 10 and 11 users with a simpler and more convenient way to install the program.

Here is what the roadmap says about Microsoft Teams coming soon to the Microsoft Store:
Microsoft Teams app for work, school and life will soon be available to download from Microsoft store. This app will support work, school and consumer accounts on Windows 10 and Work or school accounts on Windows 11.
Judging from the description, Microsoft does not plan to make Teams less confusing than it currently is. As of now, Microsoft provides two versions of Teams: one "regular" version you can download from the official website and one built-in Windows 11. Microsoft positions the latter as an alternative to mainstream messaging platforms and voice/video calling solutions for regular customers.

Microsoft today fulfilled its promise to bring Teams to the Microsoft Store. More than five years since its introduction, Microsoft Teams is finally available for download from where it should have been from the very beginning.

If you use Windows 10, you can download Teams from the Microsoft Store without any surprises. The company says Teams on Windows 10 works with work, school, and personal accounts. Confusingly, things are slightly different when you download Teams on Windows 11. Because Windows 11 has the built-in Chat app (that thing that sits on the taskbar by default and consumes quite a lot of resources), Teams from the Store supports only work and school accounts.
