Unconfirmed rumors about Microsoft working hard on a team collaboration app called Skype Teams are running rampant. (Microsoft did not provide substantiation.) PC World has called Skype Teams a “Slack killer” and a report from MSPoweruser explains some of the features.
Yet, even if the product exists (and augments the more enterprise-oriented Yammer app owned by Microsoft), it will need to provide some innovative new features for group collaboration. The biggest one that’s missing today? It’s all over Reddit, it’s in some email apps, and it’s even in some comment threads including the one at Computerworld.
