Microsoft announced today the launch of a native Microsoft Teams application optimized for Apple Silicon Macs, the application coming after several months of development.

Microsoft Teams is a business communication platform similar to Slack, offering text chat, video conferencing, file storage, app integration, and more. The native version of the app will bring a “significant performance boost” for more efficient use of device resources and an optimized Teams experience in calls and meetings.

At Microsoft, we’re committed to delivering great product experiences that help our customers work easier and faster on their favorite devices. Our customers who use a Mac with Apple silicon have told us they want Teams optimized for their devices. We are rolling out a production universal binary version of Teams, which means it will work natively on the entire Mac lineup, including those with Apple silicon.

Microsoft says all Mac users will be automatically upgraded to the most recent Teams update, and the generally available version of the native Teams app on Apple Silicon Macs will be gradually rolled out to customers over the coming months. .
