This chapter introduced the main features included in Microsoft Teams, giving you an overview of how they work and what they look like. In the upcoming chapters, you will see that these features are common across the Microsoft Teams apps.

Chats and meetings are key features of Microsoft Teams. They are complemented by other features, such as file sharing, search, and calendar, which allow you to be more efficient as you carry out daily tasks.

Despite being a global application, Microsoft Teams allows you to customize it to your own needs so you can adjust the notifications to your work rhythm, change the theme of the application from light to dark, and, most importantly, manually change your status, telling all the other Microsoft Teams users your availability.

In the next chapter, you will learn more about the chat feature and how to use it to communicate with other Teams members.
