If you plan to use Teams for work or school in Windows 11, you can connect and collaborate by downloading and installing Microsoft Teams (work or school). This applies if you use either of the following accounts:

  • Work account (usually assigned by an IT admin as a part of an organization with a license to use Teams)

  • School account (as part of a school or educational institution)

If you are planning to use Teams free or if you were a guest in an org, you can connect and collaborate by downloading and installing another version of Microsoft Teams (work or school) and signing in with your Microsoft account or the guest account where the invite was sent to.
