    • PayPal uses actual Slack.

      Apparently there are several companies that are using MS Teams, according to MS. Although MS boasts about 13m users or something, it's interesting to note that 13m is only about 10% of users who have O365 subscriptions (and get Teams for free). Which means MS can't seem to convince 90% of their subscribers who already have Teams for free to actually use the product.

      PayPal uses both, actually..
      The point here is Microsoft bundles MS Teams with office suite/O360, so it is easy to penetrate the existing customer base. Then the network effect.

      not easy.
      O365 has individual users and schools that don't need Teams but even free is a hard sell bc you're coupling chat with Office and a company might not want to stick with office later on or get everyone office.

    I really like Teams, but Slack has more soul in the actual chat. Longterm I’d bet on Teams though.

    One thing though, it looks convenient to use Teams for video calls and conferences, but when it comes to team interaction/chat/sharing/coding etc. I find Slack more intuitive than Teams.
