Microsoft Teams App Ecosystem Gains User Ratings and Full Reviews Functionality

Microsoft Teams introduces ratings and reviews to improve app discovery and foster a more collaborative and user-driven platform.

has recently unveiled a new ratings and reviews feature designed for Microsoft Teams. This addition aims to streamline the feedback process for apps within Teams and extend the feedback's reach and usefulness. The enhancement allows users not only to rate apps with a one to five-star system but also to compose comprehensive reviews.

Consistent Across Microsoft 365

The recently integrated feature is powered by Microsoft AppSource, assuring that the ratings and reviews provided by users will be consistent across all app discovery points within Microsoft 365. The implementation's primary goal is to facilitate a unified experience for both developers and users by allowing the same feedback to be accessed regardless of the Microsoft platform used. Moreover, with such a system in place, app developers can directly interact with feedback, responsively managing their reviews within the Teams Partner Center.

Ongoing Teams Development

In line with continuous improvements to Teams, Microsoft has strengthened the service with additional features. The company has launched a new Meet app within Teams to streamline the organization of meetings. Microsoft has famously rolled out at least one feature a day on average to Teams over the last couple of years. This fast pace looks no signs of slowing down when Teams 2.0 arrives. In fact, I recently reported onĀ a slew of features penciled for the new version of the collaboration app. Inbuilt workflows, a revamped Together Mode, and a new private line feature are all in line for the app in the coming month

The addition of ratings and reviews continues Microsoft's effort to enhance user interaction and satisfaction with the applications running on the Teams platform. It positions Teams as an even more collaborative and user-endorsed ecosystem, where user feedback can directly influence app quality and performance.
