Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol).

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Law firm

    By me,you and everyone else
    What I especially like about this app is the fact that similar to WhatsApp it allows for a conversation to take place without multiple emails going back-and-forth and having other emails come in, in between those emails. It keeps a better flow to the work that’s being performed and doesn’t simply clog up our email boxes. I’m also able to not only create different teams for different purposes but if I really want to I can create different categories with each team. I especially like creating the different teams and dealing with different members of my law firm through those different groups, again keeping organized those discussions back-and-forth. I highly recommend using this app it’s been terrific it has a desktop component as well as apps for the iPhone
  • Overall I’m a fan

    By jordanjpayne
    Chat and group chat options - functionally Teams is very similar to Slack but I think integration across many other Office apps (OneNote, etc.) gives Teams an edge. The UI does feel less slick, more dated and somehow less snappy than some other players in this space - I’m not sure how to articulate what i find problematic or underwhelming about the interface or it’s overall design but it just feels inherently corporate and less personal, perhaps more personality and personalization options could improve this aspect of the software, fun avatars, voice memos, active background images, logo and brand integration spring to mind. With Web, Desktop App for Mac and PC as well as mobile App offerings I can be accessible everywhere to my teams and the video conferencing and call options are pretty slick so far as well. Good job overall M$ ;)
  • Works well enough. Some frustrations.

    By nalexander50
    I absolutely hate having to constantly clear the notification bandage from the app. If I dismiss the notification in Notification Center, I want that badge to go away — I’ve handled the notification. I believe this is an iOS system function and not under developer control, thought. It’s still frustrating when you get dozens of notifications per day. It’s also frustrating that iOS receives notifications before the desktop app does. My phone, over WiFi, gets notified faster than my desktop workstation, wired. It’s also frustrating that there are not synced notifications between iOS and desktop. If I read something on my phone, I have to also go “read” it on desktop to make the desktop app stop yelling that there’s a notification.
  • Good but needs missing end user controls.

    By sigrney
    I like teams desktop and mobile. Clean interface, no syncing issues. Very effective communication and collaboration tool. However, and this is s big one with thousands of votes.....unbelievable that the end user cannot delete conversations. I don’t want to delete individual messages. If I no longer want or need an entire conversation I should be able to delete it. Skype for Business allows companies to disable saving conversations for good reason. I do like that conversations are persistent in Teams. This is a big help over Skype where it would crash and die when I move from desk to meeting room and therefore jump to a new WiFi hotspot. Let me delete entire conversations Period.
  • Teams is easy to use for collaboration between groups across IT platforms

    By kleighHA
    We use Teams at my company so we can communicate across different IT platforms easily. We create the different groups and can add people so everyone can be aware. It is very easy to use my only drawback from using it for at least over a year is it is very “buggy” on start up. Don’t put it in your Start up menu, start it up later once other programs are already up. We are looking into other apps for collaboration and for Agile but this is pretty great! Lots of great features: live chat, chat which saves history, access to files, communication to your whole team, etc.
  • Good product - but glitchy

    By Prasadrak
    Great product, offers lot of convenience but still having many annoying glitches. Slow and sluggish sometimes. Clumsy to get started. Sometimes it doesn’t let you add members to teams. Retrying few times does help. Many features can still be improved- like say Commenting on others work. Is still basic - could have been done as an overlay layer. So any doc can be commented on without disturbing the actual document - comments are shown layered on top of the document being commented. Having said that, this is perhaps the best likely future of collaborative work. It’s great. perhaps next windows of MS.
  • Good idea but lacking basic feature

    By Lolzs45
    I was really excited about this Microsoft Teams. I thought, what a great idea to put onedrive, sharepoint, skype and office into one. But as I played with it more and more, I noticed some basic features are either not there or not working properly on mobile devices. Remember I see this useful for people on the go with their mobile devices. Notifications, it works intermittent on mobile device even after I changed my settings to “always”. Files are randomly sorted by who knows. I wish there’s an option to sort it or by deafault, sort files alphabetically. That way it is easier to find files. A search function would also be very helpful. Please include this basic features.
  • Well done, please fix X button

    By phole314
    I like the app, it’s pretty seamless when I switch from PC to iPad, which is really useful when I have to travel light. I wish documents could fill the screen...sometimes I have to zoom in and out as I’m reading a document - I don’t need the left pane at those times, I’d like to be able to hide it. One more thing that would be great - can you make the X button work when you’re viewing a file? I keep having to use the left pane to go all the way home, tapping X doesn’t do anything. Thanks for putting this together; I appreciate that there is an iPad version.
  • Great Start, Missing a Few Things

    By mikebrodt
    Teams is already proving itself to be far better that Skype for Business, and has helped our group to work together. The mobile app is missing a few things compared to its desktop counterpart, however. The single biggest thing being able to schedule meetings. I know that Outlook can schedule a meeting for Skype for Business, but being able to schedule a meeting right from the Teams app would mean that, regardless of the email client or device, we can plan and meet trough Teams. That is huge. Keep up the good work!
  • Too many limitations

    By neilleleven
    The appeal of Teams, Slack, or any other similar service is the integration with other applications. On my iPad Pro, I would expect to have access to most of these integrations. Unfortunately, the iPad app is treated as the same as an iPhone in terms of assumed capability. My iPad Pro is far faster and more powerful than my work provided 2012 MacBook Pro, yet Microsoft has hamstrung its app where I am unable to edit posts where I’ve shared content, nor am I able to contribute to meeting notes. Overall, I appreciate the chat and conversation features for my iPhone, but I’m highly disappointed in Microsoft’s lack of imagination for the iPad Pro.
