Best Apps for Microsoft Teams in Q2 2021 based on AppSource insights

Microsoft Teams is one of the most popular apps for remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The secret weapon of Microsoft Teams is its ability to unite a lot of services under one app, thus making collaborative work really easy and fun. While 80% of the work can be done inside the Microsoft Office365 ecosystem, sometimes you need 3-rd party apps. Often it’s a small single-purpose app that does only one thing but does it really well. In this post, we’ll review what great 3-rd party apps for Microsoft Teams you can find at Microsoft App Source.

I want to make the best apps list objective; that’s why I fetched all apps data from Microsoft AppSource, sliced and diced it. To select winners, I sorted apps by the number of reviews and their average rating. Easy-to-digest results can be found below. For curious readers, I attached the link to the fetched data at the end of the post. I hope you’ll enjoy this post and will find some great apps for your company.

Best apps for Microsoft Teams among all publishers

Let’s start with statistical data. Microsoft Teams Marketplace has 960 apps, and only 355 (36%) have at least one review. I assume that apps w/o reviews are not useful at all. Of 355 apps that have reviews, only 206 have more than one review. On average, an app with reviews has at least 5 reviews.

To find the best apps among all publishers at Microsoft AppSource, I selected Top-25 apps with at least 5 reviews and sorted them by average review score.

Results are in the list below; I bet you’ll find something interesting.

Best apps for Microsoft Teams by Microsoft

After reviewing the list of the best apps, I was curious why there are no apps from Microsoft. Does Microsoft AppSource have any popular apps developed by Microsoft itself? To answer this question, I quickly filtered apps by the publisher (“Microsoft”) and found that only two apps from Microsoft had more than 1 review and a rating greater than 4. List of the apps you can find below. Seems like Microsoft can develop nice apps only for software engineers...

What’s next?

I hope you enjoyed this post and found interesting apps for your company. In the next post, I’ll select the Top-3 best apps for Microsoft Teams for each category (productivity, sales, marketing, etc.); I think we’ll get interesting and non-obvious results.
