Meta, formerly Facebook, disclosed a partnership with Microsoft that will allow customers to integrate Workplace with Microsoft Teams, according to a report by CNBC on Wednesday.
- The partnership gives users access to Workplace content inside the Teams app. Similarly, users can see Teams video meetings in the Workplace app.
- The arrangement between Meta and Microsoft brings two rival companies that compete in the enterprise communication software market.
- Meanwhile, Workplace and Teams do not have full overlap. Workplace is targeting companywide connections, while Teams is focused on instant communication between workers and their direct colleagues.
- In a CNBC interview, Ujjwal Singh, Meta’s head of Workplace stated that integration had been asked by customers including Vodafone and Accenture.
