RELEASE: “Games for Work” app for Microsoft Teams


Microsoft today announced new social gaming functionality inside Microsoft Teams called "Games for Work".

Build Work Connections Through Play

Today, I am excited to introduce the Games for Work app,* developed by Microsoft Casual Games, an Xbox Games Studio.** Now, you can easily add a game in the context of where work happens: in Microsoft Teams meetings. Choose from a selection of favorite casual games including Microsoft IceBreakers, Wordament, Minesweeper, and Solitaire—all easy to play in quick, interactive, and multi-player versions (from 2 to 250 players). They are safe for work (verifiably “E” rated) and ad-free. To address the various needs of teams, each game within the app emphasizes a different element of team building.

Available to Microsoft Teams Enterprise & Education subscribers only. Works for both desktop & mobile & it’s ad-free!
