San Francisco: Software giant Microsoft has enabled developers to publish chat-based workspace Microsoft Teams` application to its Office Store.

Earlier, only select developers were authorised to build for the chat-based service, VentureBeat reported.

Microsoft has updated its Teams Developer Preview, adding features that will roll out to all users next month, the company announced during the on-going Build 2017 conference at Seattle.

The company rolled out its collaboration and communication platform Teams to all users of Office 365 for free in March. In a short span, Teams has had new features like classroom collaboration tools.

"First up in the preview, apps in Microsoft Teams will soon be more discoverable for end users through a new app experience. The goal is to surface apps so users can find and add them more easily," the report noted.

The company also announced a new feature "Compose Extensions" that will allow users to issue bring in information from another app right into their Team chat.
