Difference between Teams and Groups

Group can be used for quick discussions or conferences. It may be brought together for a particular purpose, or they may be informal such as a group of friends, neighbours, colleagues, etc.

Difference between Teams and Groups

Groups are more instantly created for the purpose to chat with team members or network. Teams are highly professional. Furthermore, a group can have a single topic, but there can be multiple topics in a team.

For example, you have an idea to initiate a new project that you are willing to discuss with your team members. Since, it's just an idea, instead of a team, you can create a group where people can share their thoughts and brainstorm. Moreover, groups can be created for instant meetings, instant decision-making, and so on.

On the other hand, suppose you are leading a project, and you have a dedicated team working on that. The team has developers, designers, marketers, and testers. So, under one team you can create different topics to differentiate each area of the project. Developers can have their own dedicated topics, designers can have their own and so on. Therefore, under the same team, you can easily keep your work organized by creating different topics.
