Wednesday 11 March 2020 | 13:05 CET | News
Microsoft is lifting limits on the freemium version of its Microsoft Teams collaboration tool, to support more remote working following the coronavirus outbreak.

The free Teams version normally limits the amount of storage and group calling available, but these restrictions have been lifted from 10 March.
