    After installing Microsoft Teams, open it via the iPad’s Home Screen or App Library, and log in with a work, school, or personal Microsoft Account. If you don’t have an account, tap Sign up for free.

    Note: If you want to join a meeting without signing in, tap the Join a meeting option, enter your name, meeting invite ID and passcode, and tap Join now.

    Once you do that, pick a Teams workspace, allow the application to send you notifications, and permit it to access the iPad’s camera and microphone.

    • Chat with colleagues one-on-one or in group chats.
    • Check upcoming Teams meetings.
