Today, we’re pleased to announce new file storage options in Microsoft Teams, the chat-based workspace in Office 365.

 

In addition to the OneDrive and SharePoint storage included in Teams, which gives every channel a SharePoint folder, users can now share and collaborate on files saved in 3rd party storage locations including Box, Citrix ShareFile, Dropbox, and Google Drive. The new storage options will begin rolling out tomorrow. Office 365 Admins can configure the individual storage providers in the Office 365 Admin Center.

 Add folders from new storage providers into Teams.Add folders from new storage providers into Teams. 

Thanks to everyone who has tried Microsoft Teams for all the great feedback and support. If you haven’t started using Teams yet,
