The Microsoft Power Platform works in tandem with Microsoft 365 in a variety of different ways. Each of them have their own unique app that directly integrates with Microsoft Teams that users can install to utilize the Power Platform directly within teams. Let's go through each tool and see how it works. Power BI, once installed, allows users to create and edit dashboards and reports. They can also interact with and share Power BI content directly from Teams without having to navigate to Power BI online. 

Power Apps takes this integration a step further by embedding the Power Apps studio directly into the Power Apps app in Microsoft Teams. This allows users to create apps directly in Microsoft Teams without having to switch between platforms or services. The apps function the same way and are able to be shared with other team members. And since Teams utilizes the Dataverse for Teams, the entire process is streamlined for the Teams environment, making creating apps quick and easy directly from your Teams client.

Power Automate is another app you can install directly to Microsoft Teams. Users can expect a similar experience to what they're used to when accessing Power Automate app in Microsoft Teams. Being able to create cloud flows directly within the client and integrate with other Power Platform tools are all available from the app. And finally, Power Virtual Agents. Much like the other tools, you can install Power Virtual Agents app directly into Microsoft Teams and start creating your own bots. You can create, test, and publish your bots all within Teams and share those bots with other users in your Team by adding it to the Microsoft Teams App store. Each of these tools empowers users and brings the functionality of the Power Platform into a standardized integrated experience directly within Microsoft Teams.
