Add Games to Microsoft Teams

There’s now a Games for Work addon for Microsoft Teams so you can either connect or waste time with your fellow staffers <g>.

Games app for Teams is a combination of a few well-known Microsoft Games:

  • Solitaire
  • Minesweeper
  • IceBreakers
  • Wordament

Available for Microsoft Teams Enterprise and Education customers only

Get Games for Teams from this link or search for ‘Games for Word’ in the Teams addon list.
