What is Microsoft Teams? Take a non-technical, virtual, interactive tour!

Microsoft have produced a really good virtual and interactive tour of Microsoft Teams. It’s perfect for anyone who hasn’t yet tried Teams, or who logged into an empty setup and didn’t know how to get started.

To begin, go to and put your name is. This is only used by the demo process to personalize the demo and make it more realistic.

Firstly, the demo will take you through some basic introduction steps, pointing what different sections are for and how to use them:

After that, things get really interesting as you are dropped into a very realistic Teams environment. You’ll see people respond to your joining, and be prompted to say hi:

Don’t be surprised if people respond to your joining – just like they would in the real world:

Then, you’ll be shown how different functions of Microsoft Teams work – including viewing and commenting on files from within Teams:

You’ll be walked through various other interactions as well, including sending memes!

This is a really good resource if you’re brand new to Teams, or if you want to help a colleague quickly get up to speed without spending a lot of your own time on it. The next time someone says to you “oh, I don’t know how Teams works” – just send them this link: and they’ll soon understand how good Teams is!
