Earlier in the week, Microsoft announced opening up its app market to nearly two dozen apps that can be used directly within Teams. The feature will let users work on projects in apps such as Asana and Slido without leaving Teams. On top of that, users will develop their chatbots, workflows and other apps within Teams using low-code tools. Both features are rolling out this month.
The in-Teams apps come on the heels of a similar feature from Zoom. In October, Zoom announced an apps marketplace called Zapps. The store features nearly three dozen apps, such as Dropbox and Slack. Zoom said it would eventually open up its marketplace to more preapproved app developers. Zoom, however, does not offer the low-code development feature in Teams.
