YakChat: The world's first natively integrated SMS app for Microsoft Teams


YakChat, the global leader in delivering integrated SMS functionality for Microsoft 365, has launched the world’s first fully integrated SMS texting application for Microsoft’s flagship UC&C platform, Microsoft Teams.

The only natively integrated SMS application for Microsoft Teams on the market today, YakChat enables users to text directly from their Microsoft Teams desktop and continue SMS conversations on the move with YakChat’s mobile app. For the first time, Microsoft Teams’ users can connect via SMS with their individual and group contacts in Outlook, Active Directory, and SharePoint. They can also connect with members of their Microsoft Teams channels, expanding their communication options seamlessly.

‘Microsoft Teams users have long demanded the ability to text—and for good reason,’ said David Ward, CEO of YakChat. ‘For reach, impact, speed, and universality, no other messaging medium comes close. By harnessing the incredible power of SMS with, arguably, the most revolutionary collaboration tool out there, YakChat has made it even easier for organizations to text clients, co-workers, and partners from one platform, using one number, and to manage their contacts and conversations in just one place. And for our customers in the midst of COVID, that’s never been more critical.’

Text with a virtual number or SMS-enabled landline

Users of the service have the option to text either by utilizing a virtual phone number or by SMS-enabling their existing landline. Furthermore, YakChat has collaborated with Direct Routing partners, including CallTower, to harness the complete potential of Teams Voice. This partnership offers an all-in-one communication solution and phone system, seamlessly integrating SMS functionality for a comprehensive user experience
