A couple of favorite news about the world of Teams - Week 17

Another week has passed, and here is another update from the world of Teams. It has been a rather quiet week, and I there hasn't been any big releases or feature updates catching my attention, but there has still been enough news and activity to write a small update from my part as well.

The biggest news (not no real surprise), was the announcement of several Windows Apps going into retirement. Skype for Business, Teams and Yammer will no longer be available for devices running Windows Phone: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4134653/windows-phone-apps-for-skype-for-business-microsoft-teams-and-yammer-a

A small updated for the Teams Powershell module was announced. Type Install-Module MicrosoftTeams -Force to update your module to version 0.9.3

A public preview of Office 2019 was announced at the techcommunity: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Office-Apps-Blog/Office-2019-Preview-is-ready-for-Commercial-customers/ba-p/187506

Some of my followers were confused by the following twitter message: https://twitter.com/SkypeBusiness/status/989141988523036672 but fear not. Skype for Business is not going away, Microsoft is simply merging their twitter accounts into one.

Finally, I wanted to share a rather interesting article I read at forbes.com. All about how the way we collaborate is changing in front of our eyes. Are you able to keep up?  https://www.forbes.com/sites/microsoft365/2018/04/23/as-the-way-we-work-changes-so-must-the-tools-we-use-to-create-and-collaborate/#467467ab339d
