Getting Started with Microsoft Teams Microsoft Teams can been accessed from Office 365. Once you're logged into the Office 365 portal, from the homepage, you should see a blue T icon in the list of apps. It's located over here to the right side. By giving this a click, it will take you to the Teams application. You can also access Teams from the app launcher located in the upper-left corner. From the app launcher, you should also see that same blue T icon. Let's go ahead and give this a click and take a look. Here is the landing page for the Microsoft Teams app. You'll notice that there are several ways to navigate your way around. And of course if you need to get back to another application, the app launcher is still visible in the upper-left corner to take you back to the homepage for Office 365 or other applications from this app launcher area. Microsoft Teams is also available in a desktop version. And if that has not been installed on your computer yet, from the very left navigation bar, you'll see Get app. It's a great place for you to go and download that application. Once it is installed, it's going to look something like this. Notice the blue T here on the taskbar. We'll go ahead and give that a click. It has the same interface as the online application, and mostly the same tools and services are available as well. Thanks for watching, and I'll see you in the next lesson.
