Install Microsoft Teams on a Personal Device

Summary

Teams, much like the other Office 365 products, Teams can be accessed anywhere with a network connection. You can access Teams through the desktop app, web app, or by downloading the app on a mobile device. One amazing thing about Teams, is that the interface should be nearly identical on all platforms. Employees who are using a college-owned device, will have access to the desktop version. Anyone who doesn't have the desktop version can access Teams through a browser (such as Chrome or Internet Explorer). To do this, you can go directly to Teams Online. In addition to the experience being similar across different platforms, it will also be the same for different audiences (faculty, staff, and students). Whether you are using a Mac or PC, iPhone or Android, you can install Teams on your personal device.
