Users can expect to connect, collaborate,
and jointly organize their lives across work groups, friends, and family. The
new features start to roll out in preview to the Teams mobile app today and
will be fully rolled out in the coming weeks.

 

“We are using multiple apps and tools–both online
and offline–such as calendars, email, messaging, photo apps, to-do lists, and
documents to manage it all. Every day more people love what Teams does for
them because it is the hub for teamwork that lets you chat, meet, call, and
collaborate all in one place. And while Teams is great for work, we believe it
can help everyone better manage their responsibilities across work and personal
life. With these new features, we
hope to extend the power of Teams to your personal life whether you’re managing
daily family life or just trying to stay connected and in sync with those who
matter most,” said Rami
El Bayadi, Regional Director, Microsoft Office Asia.

With
the new features, Microsoft hopes to
provide users one app that seamlessly manages work and personal life as well as
staying connected with those who matter most. Microsoft Teams will now provide
the tools for users to manage daily life; share grocery lists, organize across
family calendars, safely store important information like Wi-Fi passwords and
account info, and even see location updates when loved ones arrive home or at
other locations like work or school.

 

  • Stay connected with text chat and
    video calling:
    Microsoft Teams will become the messaging hub
    for all personal chats and video and voice calls, with fun features like
    sharing GIFs, photos, videos, documents, and even location already integrated.
    Users can create groups to chat and call, to stay connected with family and
    friends.
  • Keep everyone on the same page and
    pick up where they left off:
    Users will
    be able to stay organized by sharing lists, documents, and calendars all within
    the group dashboard.
    Microsoft Teams will allow users to easily go
    back and see the chats, tasks, pictures, videos, and group calendars shared
    within the dashboard,
    providing a great way to pick up
    conversations or projects where they left off.
  • Collaborate and share important
    documents efficiently and securely:
    Microsoft Teams integrates with other Microsoft
    365 apps so users can easily share from Word, Excel, and PowerPoint right from
    within the Teams app. All documents are also stored on OneDrive and users can
    now access these documents across other devices – whether it is for planning a
    family budget or preparing kids’ schedules.
  • Easily share location and information: Location sharing* is now available as part of these new
    personal features as well, making it easier for users to share their location
    and find their friends.

Microsoft Teams will also come with a Safe, which lets users securely
store and share important information, like passwords, rewards numbers, or
login information. Users can easily share this information directly from the
Teams app with families and friends, all backed by the security of two-factor
authentication and end-to-end encryption.

 

To get started on the preview, users can simply use
their Microsoft Teams mobile app at work and add in their personal account. Users
will then be able to toggle between their personal and work accounts. New users
can also visit the app store on iOS or Android to download the mobile app and
sign up with a personal Microsoft account, or create a new one with their phone
number. General availability of the new features, as well as
expanding features to the desktop and web versions of Teams, is expected later
this year.

Strongest first quarter ever: Preliminary results of Deutsche Post DHL Group above market expectations

  • All divisions significantly increased EBIT in first quarter 2021; Group EBIT tripled to around EUR 1.9 billion
  • Free cash flow development continued positive trajectory and improved by more than EUR 1.4 billion to around EUR 1.0 billion
  • CEO Frank Appel: "The start into the new financial year was more dynamic than ever"


SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 12 April 2021 - Deutsche Post DHL Group has today released preliminary results for the first quarter of 2021 and has raised the outlook for the current financial year. Preliminary operating profit (EBIT) for the first three months improved to around EUR 1.9 billion (Q1 2020: EUR 592 million). The positive development of the group's businesses seen in the fourth quarter 2020 has continued well through the first quarter 2021. In the first three months of the year the B2C shipment volumes remained high in all networks while the recovery in the B2B business continued.

"The start to the new financial year was more dynamic than ever. It proves that we have successfully geared our business to the right growth drivers. One year into the pandemic we experienced in the first quarter 2021 a sustained momentum in e-commerce and a significant stabilization in global trade with increasing air- and sea-freight volumes. Consequently all divisions reported a significant jump in earnings above market expectations. Global trade continues to recover and vaccine distribution is in full swing which makes me very optimistic for the rest of 2021 and beyond," said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group.

All divisions optimally positioned for continuing e-commerce boom and growth in global trade

Express: The division reached an EBIT of around EUR 955 million in the first quarter 2021 compared to EUR 393 million in Q1 2020.

Global Forwarding, Freight: EBIT in Global Forwarding, Freight stood at around EUR 215 million in Q1 2021, clearly above previous year's Q1 of EUR 73 million.

Supply Chain: EBIT at Supply Chain came in at around EUR 165 million in the first quarter 2021 compared to EUR 105 million in Q1 2020.

eCommerce Solutions: eCommerce Solutions recorded a first quarter 2021 EBIT of around EUR 115 million, clearly above last year's Q1 result of EUR 6 million.

Post & Parcel Germany: EBIT in Post & Parcel Germany in Q1 2021 was around EUR 555 million (Q1 2020: EUR 334 million).

Earnings momentum mirrored in positive cash flow development and improved outlook


The continued positive business development is underpinned by a strong cash flow development; free cash flow amounted to around EUR 1.0 billion in the first quarter 2021. In Q1 2020 this figure was still negative at EUR -409 million.

In light of the strong earnings momentum, guidance for 2021 is adjusted as follows:

Group EBIT for 2021 is now expected to be significantly above EUR 5.6 billion (previous forecast: more than EUR 5.6 billion). Equally, the result for the DHL divisions is now seen significantly above EUR 4.5 billion (previous forecast: more than EUR 4.5 billion). EBIT for the Post & Parcel Germany division is no longer expected at around EUR 1.6 billion but above EUR 1.6 billion. The expectation of a Group Functions EBIT of around EUR -0.4 billion remains unchanged. Full year 2021 Free Cash Flow is now expected to be significantly above EUR 2.3 billion (previous forecast: around EUR 2.3 billion).

The Group will introduce a revised detailed guidance with the comprehensive disclosure for Q1 2021 which will be published as planned on May 5, 2021.
