“This will make it even easier for employees to stay up to date with important information, and will open up more opportunities for company-wide feedback and engagement,” Meta said in a statement late on Wednesday.

Through a pinned tab in Teams, workers can access Workplace content, including a condensed version of the Workplace news feed, without having to switch between apps. They can react to and comment on Workplace posts in Teams too.

“We have a shared vision of offering our customers choice and flexibility, so it made sense for us to come together to help our mutual customers unlock collaboration and break down silos within their organisations,” said Jeff Teper, CVP Product and Engineering, Microsoft Teams.

In addition, Teams will be available on Meta Portal products in December and People will be able to use the devices for Teams video calls.
