Get started with Microsoft Teams today


  1. Once your paid subscription begins, cancelation policies vary based on your status as a new customer, product, and domain selections on Microsoft. Learn more. Cancel your Microsoft 365 subscription any time by going to the Microsoft 365 admin center. When a subscription is canceled, all associated data will be deleted. Learn more about data retention, deletion, and destruction in Microsoft 365.
  2. After your one-month free trial, you will be charged the applicable subscription fee. Credit card required. Cancel any time to stop future charges.
  3. This plan works with Office 2021, Office 2019, Office 2016, and Office 2013. Previous versions of Office, such as Office 2010, may work with Microsoft 365 with reduced functionality. This compatibility with Office does not include the Office 365 F3 plans.
  4. For HD calling, compatible HD hardware and broadband connection with at least 4 Mbps are required.
  5. OneDrive storage is used for file sharing in chat, so OneDrive storage limits apply.
    Unlimited personal cloud storage for qualifying plans for subscriptions of five or more users, otherwise 1 TB per user. Microsoft will initially provide 1 TB of OneDrive for Business storage per user, which admins can increase to 5 TB per user. Contact Microsoft support to request additional storage. Storage up to 25 TB per user is provisioned in OneDrive for Business. Beyond 25 TB, storage is provisioned as 25 TB SharePoint team sites to individual users.
  6. Because Teams runs on a SharePoint Online backend for file sharing, SharePoint storage limits apply to the Files section within a team. See “Storage limits and specification for Microsoft Teams” for more details.
  7. Access and Publisher are available for PC only.
  8. For more information, see the Microsoft Online Service Level Agreement.
  9. Location permissions must be active; driving safety available only in the US, UK, AUS, CA.
  10. Availability of mobile apps varies by country/region.
