Have fun with emoji, memes, and GIFs

Tip: Teams works particularly well with Microsoft Office documents.

  1. In your channel conversation, click Choose File beneath your compose box.
  2. Select a file, click Open, and then Send.

You can always see all the files you post to a channel by going to the Files tab.
