Microsoft Teams’ Top Competitor’s Review and Analysis

With 28 countries having Google Meet as their most popular video call platform, and 7 with Microsoft Teams, these make up the top three applications.

Microsoft Teams saw a significant decrease when compared to 2021 which used to be the top tool in 41 countries, an -83% decrease.

This could be due to questions regarding Microsoft Teams’ security, a recent study found gaps in the third-party app security model of both Slack and Teams.

In 2020 Skype had 31.8% of all global searches for video call platforms, which now stands at 6% in 2022, this is a huge decrease of nearly 81% in two years.

There are numerous potential factors for this including lack of end-to-end encryption, Skype phasing out their ‘Skype for Business’ service as of June 2022 and unclear pricing.

Interestingly, despite remaining the most popular platform overall, Zoom had the largest annual decrease of just over 4.5%, Zoom stock prices at the start of October 2021 were at $255.05 and are now just $73.59 as of October 2022.
