Microsoft Teams has surpassed 270 million monthly active users, said Frank X Shaw, lead communications for Microsoft in a Twitter post.   

According to Shaw, Teams’ adoption has grown in every segment, with frontline worker usage seeing a two times year-on-year (YoY) growth. Over 90% of Fortune 500 companies used Teams Phone in the December quarter, he added.  

Shaw further said that number of active Team Rooms devices more than doubled YoY.

“There are now more than 1.4 billion monthly active devices running Windows 10 or Windows 11,” he said. “XboxGamePass has more than 25 million subscribers across PC and console.” 

The pandemic-led shift to remote work and learning in 2020 saw millions of users turn to video calling apps such as Teams, Google Meet and Zoom to communicate with colleagues, customers and to attend virtual classrooms. Microsoft Teams’ user base grew over three times from 20 million users in November 2019 to 75 million in April 2020. Likewise, Zoom’s user base grew from 10 million at the end of 2019 to 300 million in April 2020.
