Dispute because of Teams

The European Commission is checking if Microsoft broke EU competition rules by making its communication tool Teams part of its Office 365 and Microsoft 365 packages.

Even though no verdict is in sight yet, Microsoft responds: To better serve our customers and address concerns raised by the European Commission, we're making changes to how we license Microsoft 365, Office 365, and Teams in the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland starting October 1, 2023.

Microsoft Teams is the most popular business communication service used by more than 300 million users. Is hard to imagine that EU companies are going to use Microsoft 365 / Office 365 Enterprise E1, E3 or E5 without Teams. EU companies will have to buy Teams extra and pay 3 EUR more.

Enterprise licenses only without Teams

From Oktober 2023 customers in the EEA and Switzerland who want to use Teams and Microsoft 365 E3/E5 or Office 365 E1/E3/E5 packages will need to buy two different packages: one E1/E3/E5 EEA package without Teams, and separately purchase Microsoft Teams.
