NOTE Microsoft is continually updating its software, unlike in the past where you could expect a new version every few years. New versions are available regularly with changes adding new features and fixing bug fixes. Occasionally the user interface changes too. So, as you are learning Teams keep in mind that some wording may differ, some features may appear in a different place but the concept remains the same.
