Microsoft expects to take more efforts to resolve an EU antitrust probe into its chat and video software Teams, which is part of its Office product, even though the company appears to be facing EU charges in the matter, according to President Brad Smith on Tuesday.
The European Commission opened an investigation into Microsoft’s linking of Office and Teams last year, following a 2020 complaint by Salesforce-owned Slack, a competitor workplace messaging tool.

Microsoft announced in April that it would offer Teams, its chat and video software, independently from its Office product globally, months after unbundling the two products in Europe to avoid a potential EU antitrust fine.
Microsoft is ready to do more, according to Smith.
“I expect we will take additional steps,” he told reporters after earlier meeting with EU antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager in Brussels.
“On Teams, we have done a lot of work, but we are not done yet. “Microsoft is committed to addressing regulators’ concerns,” Smith stated.

He stated that while the company would not be shocked to receive a statement of objections or a charge sheet from the EU competition enforcer, this was not the final stage in addressing the issue.
