New data about the number of Slack and Workplace usage gives the chance to compare how Microsoft is doing with Teams. And the answer is that things seem to be going well, largely because Teams is growing off the huge Office 365 base. With 155 million users (the last figure) and 3 million more added monthly, Teams has a lot more to go after in the Office 365 installed base.
A survey found that Teams is now the second most popular chat application in large businesses and has put Slack into third position. But anyone who has tracked the numbers isn’t surprised because Teams has been growing strongly for some time.
Slack is the most obvious competitor for Microsoft Teams. The question is how many users does each platform have? Here is our best guess.
Apparently, Slack is now worth $7.1 billion. That’s a lot of money for a company that faces huge competition from Microsoft Teams, especially with the ever-increasing size of the Office 365 installed base.
