Set up Microsoft Teams Essentials, our new most affordable option. Get the best of Teams with easy instant meetings for anyone — whether they have Teams or not. The Microsoft Teams Essentials experience starts at just $4 per user per month with no meeting time limits. Jeremy Chapman, Microsoft 365 Director, walks you through step-by-step setup options.

• Sync your existing calendar with Teams. Configure email to be delivered to both Google and Microsoft services with dual delivery.

• Experience rich online meetings with video and voice, chat-based collaboration with everyone on your team, your customers, or your partners
• Easily share your screen or other content with anyone in the meeting, and work simultaneously on documents in the Microsoft Office experience.
