YakChat Launches World’s First Fully Integrated SMS Application for Microsoft Teams

Text from one platform, using one number, and manage contacts in one place

YakChat, the global leader in delivering integrated SMS functionality for Microsoft 365, has launched the world’s first fully integrated SMS texting application for Microsoft’s flagship UC&C platform, Microsoft Teams.

The only natively integrated SMS application for Microsoft Teams on the market today, YakChat enables users to text directly from their Microsoft Teams desktop and continue SMS conversations on the move with YakChat’s mobile app. Now, for the first time, Microsoft Teams’ users will be able to connect via SMS with their individual and group contacts in Outlook, Active Directory, and SharePoint, as well as with members of their Microsoft Teams channels to improve communication and speed business execution.

‘Microsoft Teams users have long demanded the ability to text – and for good reason,’ said David Ward, CEO of YakChat. ‘For reach, impact, speed, and universality, no other messaging medium comes close. So by harnessing the incredible power of SMS with, arguably, the most revolutionary collaboration tool out there, YakChat has made it even easier for organizations to text clients, co-workers, and partners from one platform, using one number, and to manage their contacts and conversations in just one place. And for our customers in the midst of COVID, that’s never been more important.’
Users of the service can text either by using a virtual phone number or by SMS-enabling their existing landline. YakChat has also combined forces with Direct Routing partners, such as CallTower, to unlock the full potential of Teams Voice for anyone seeking an all-in-one communication solution and phone system with full SMS integration.
