Microsoft-owned GitHub has announced the public beta of a new GitHub integration with Microsoft Teams.
The public beta means developers using GitHub now have the option of adding the GitHub app to the Microsoft Teams app, just as they’ve been able to do with the Slack chat for several years.
GitHub and Slack teamed up in 2018 to bring GitHub to Slack to make it easier for teams to track GitHub activity in Slack channels.

The GitHub and Microsoft Teams integration, which is maintained by GitHub, offers similar functionality as the Slack integration but for Teams channels.
“The GitHub integration for Microsoft Teams gives you and your teams full visibility into your GitHub projects right in your Teams channels, where you generate ideas, triage issues and collaborate with other teams to move projects forward,” GitHub explains.
