What is the difference between Microsoft Teams and Teams rooms?

Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Teams Rooms (MTR) are both developed by Microsoft and are designed to enhance communication and collaboration among employees, customers, and clients, but they serve different purposes and have different features.

Key differences between Microsoft Teams and Teams rooms?

Microsoft Teams is a cloud-based platform that allows users to chat, call, and hold meetings with others, share files and collaborate on documents, and integrate with other Microsoft Office 365 tools. It provides a central hub for all of your team's communication and content, making it easy to stay connected and productive, no matter where you are.

It has a wide range of features that can help teams to improve communication and collaboration, such as:

  • Chat and instant messaging: Allows users to have real-time conversations with others, either one-on-one or in groups.
  • Voice and video calls: Allows users to make voice and video calls with others, either one-on-one or in groups.
  • Meetings: Allows users to schedule and hold meetings with others, either one-on-one or in groups, with features such as screen sharing, recording, and virtual backgrounds.
  • File sharing and collaboration: Allows users to share files and collaborate on documents with others, either in real-time or asynchronously.
  • Integrations: Allows users to integrate with other Microsoft Office 365 tools such as Outlook, SharePoint, and OneNote, as well as with other apps and services through the Microsoft Teams App Store.

On the other hand, Microsoft Teams Rooms (MTR) is a meeting room solution that combines hardware and software to create a seamless meeting experience. It includes a set of hardware components such as a camera, microphone, speakers, and display, and software that runs on a Windows 10 PC. The hardware components are designed to work together to provide high-quality video and audio, while the software provides the interface for scheduling and joining meetings, as well as controlling the hardware components.

It also has a wide range of features that can help teams to improve communication and collaboration, such as:

  • One-touch join: Allows users to join a meeting with just one touch, without having to manually enter a meeting ID or password.
  • Wireless content sharing: Allows users to share content from their personal devices wirelessly, without the need for cables or adapters.
  • Calendar integration: Allows users to schedule and join meetings directly from their calendar.
  • Meeting controls: Allows users to control the camera, microphone
