Office 365 Groups

Office 365 Groups is a service developed with collaboration in mind

Office 365 Groups works within Office 365 tools allowing you to collaborate with your colleagues when writing documents, creating spreadsheets, working on project plans, scheduling meetings, or sending email. Any Office 365 subscription that has Exchange Online and SharePoint Online will support Groups.

Groups in Office 365 let you choose a set of people (public or private) that you wish to collaborate with and easily set up a collection of resources for those people to share. You don’t have to worry about manually assigning permissions to all those resources because adding members to the group automatically gives them the permissions they need to the tools your group provides. Additionally, Groups are the new and improved experience for what we used to use distribution lists or shared mailboxes to do.

Because different teams work in different ways, Office 365 provides tools to allow teams to collaborate however they wish.
