Office 365 Home-Teams

So, I just upgrade to Office 365 Home version and have attempted to install on 2 different machines but I don't find Teams in the Office apps anywhere. I downloaded the app separately but it doesn't give me any console or anyway of doing anything. It does give me a place to signup for teams which I enter my hotmail info and ittakes me to another screen that doesn't allow me to do anything unless I am a school or want Skype??

Very confused,

Thanks

Unfortunately, none of Microsoft 365 Family (formerly Office 365 Home), Microsoft 365 Personal (formerly Office 365 Personal) or Office Home & Student 2019 include Teams. The first two do have Skype though. You will need Microsoft 365 Business Basic (formerly Office 365 Business Essentials) or Microsoft 365 Business Standard (formerly Office 365 Business Premium) at the bare minimum for access to Teams.

Hi PatrickGerdes-3068,

Please refer to this article which has got the answer to your question:
https://support.office.com/en-us/article/how-do-i-get-access-to-microsoft-teams-fc7f1634-abd3-4f26-a597-9df16e4ca65b

If you have a personal Office 365 subscription, you won't be able to access Microsoft Teams. To access the app, you need one of the following Office 365 license plans:

  • Business Essentials

  • Business Premium

  • Enterprise E1, E3, or E5

  • Enterprise E4 (for anyone who purchased this plan prior to its retirement)

You can still use the free version of Teams. Details as well as a comparison table can be found in the article linked below:

Burak V.

Hi PatrickGerdes,

The Microsoft Teams package is separate from Office package.

As Burak V. said, you can access to Microsoft Teams if with Office 365 license plans. For reference, you can read this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/office-365-licensing.

If you want to manage Teams settings for your organization, you can refer to this link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/enable-features-office-365.
