You can now sign up to be notified when the consumer version of Microsoft Teams becomes available. Microsoft recently announced Microsoft Teams for consumers as part of a larger announcement for Microsoft 365. The upcoming consumer version of Microsoft Teams brings several features to the non-business version of Microsoft Teams that are currently only available for business users, including assigning tasks to team members, editing a joint calendar, and accessing cloud storage.
To be notified when consumer Microsoft Teams becomes available, you have to sign up using this form. Most of it is straightforward, including adding your email address and your country. The last portion is a bit odd, though. It reads, “I would like to hear from Microsoft and its family of companies via email and phone about Microsoft Teams and other Microsoft products and services.” This isn’t an unusual statement for companies to include in things like this, but there isn’t an option to say no. Usually, you can opt-out of information like this and still proceed with the form. If you don’t accept the final portion, you can’t sign up to be notified.
