Through the expanded strategic partnership between Adobe and Microsoft, creative professionals will now be able to take their collaboration to the next level. The updated workspace speeds up creative feedback, iteration, and decision-making through the integration of Creative Cloud and Adobe Stock.

The initial integration allows customers to leverage a bot in the Teams conversation to search for Adobe Stock images. Simply enter the keywords and the bot retrieves relevant search results with the option for users to scroll through different results without leaving the conversation. The “recommend” button will share the chosen image to teammates in the conversation.

In addition to the search bot, Microsoft customers will also have access to a dedicated Adobe Stock tab so they can search for images by keyword, explore curated collections, or perform a visual search. With Visual Search powered by Adobe Sensei, results that match the color, tone, and composition of your uploaded sample are returned in a matter of seconds.

Images can be previewed, licensed, and saved directly to your desktop or to a Creative Cloud library. You can combine Adobe Stock images with other Creative Cloud assets to stay organized.

“Earlier this year we delivered our add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint, and today we’re excited to continue delivering value to customers through the Microsoft Teams integration” said Zeke Koch, Sr. Director of Adobe Stock Product Management. “Alongside the product teams for Creative Cloud and Adobe Sign, the Adobe Stock product team is looking forward to seeing how customers use the workflows in their Teams workspaces.”

All subscribers of Microsoft Office 365 and Creative Cloud for individuals, teams, and enterprise have the opportunity to try the new product integration. Visit the Microsoft App Store to get started, or learn more about how the integration works.
