Users can easily begin a group chat with multiple users.  Doing this allows for collaborative documents, screen sharing, video and voice calls.  The instructions below will outline how to begin a chat, add multiple users, and highlight some of the basic functions of the chat interface.  This article assumes that you already have Teams installed on your computer.


1. Open Teams and navigate to the chat interface by clicking on the 'Chat' icon on the left side of the window.

2.  This will open the 'Chat' interface and should look something like this:

3.  To start a new chat, click the icon next to the search bar at the top of the window.  This will provide you will a field to add the users you want to include.

4.  Once you've added everyone you want, type a message in the box and press enter to send.  This will essentially make this chat 'official' and Teams will track it much like your email inbox.

Looking on the left, you should now see the chat you just created.

5.  The chat pane will then add available options for what you can do.

  1. So you can keep track of what each chat's purpose is, you can name the group by clicking the pencil next to the names of the users.
  2. These icons indicate the types of sharing that are available to you.  From left to right: Video chat, audio only, and screen share.  You can also add additional members to the chat by clicking the icon on the far right.
