Microsoft Teams has continued to grow amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Microsoft Teams now has 145 million daily active users. It is said to be about 26% growth in user base since October last year when the company had reported 115 million daily active users.

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Microsoft Teams had about 32 million daily active users. With pandemic forcing people to work remotely, the platform added 75 million users in just a few weeks. The user base continued to soar in the coming months.

Apart from Microsoft Teams, platforms like Google Meet and Zoom too registered a similar growth throughout 2020. According to The Verge, Zoom had about 300 million daily active participants last year. Google said it had about 100 million daily active participants.

Slack, a popular workplace collaboration platform, reported 12.5 million concurrent users at the beginning of the pandemic. Slack since then has not disclosed the daily active user base.

Earlier, Microsoft reported a growth in profits in the first quarter of 2021. It had a fiscal third-quarter profit of $14.8 billion, up 38% from the same period last year. The growth was mainly driven by the ongoing demand for its software and cloud computing services.
