Communities in Teams: available on Windows 11 PCs



In December, we launched communities in Microsoft Teams (free) on iOS and Android phones – a new experience for people to work together, connect, share, and collaborate. Whether your community is a networking group, sports team, event planning committee, or parent-teacher association, this new set of features gives your community a space to stay connected before, during, and after gatherings. While you can't create or join a community on Desktop (yet), you can now interact with those communities you have already joined on mobile using the Teams desktop app on Windows 11 PCs.


Note: This (early beta) release on Desktop has a limited set of features, but more features are coming soon.


Share information and keep your community groups in sync

In addition to everything you can already do in Microsoft Teams on Windows 11 PCs – including video calls and meetings, chats and sharing files – you can now participate in with the community groups that you've already joined on the Teams mobile app.


With this initial community experience on Windows 11, you’ll be able to:


Easily post messages to everyone in the group


Join online events in a community


Share and store documents dedicated to group activity


Learn more


Coming soon

Over the next few months, we are going to bring the best communities experience to Microsoft Teams on desktop, including ways to get started by creating your own community, joining a community, as well as organizing events.
