Coding is a team sport. To help developers be more efficient, we are excited to announce the new Azure Repos app for Microsoft Teams.

The Azure Repos app for Microsoft Teams allows users to monitor their repositories and branches from within Teams channels. Users can set up and manage subscriptions to get notifications in their channels whenever code is pushed/checked in, pull requests (PRs) are created or updated, etc. Users can leverage the presence of subscription filters to customize what they want to be notified about in the channel. Messaging extension can be used to search and share pull requests with other members in the channel or previews can be generated from pull request URLs to help initiate discussions around PRs and keep the conversations contextual.

Get notified when code is pushed to a repository or PR is created

Manage subscriptions from your Microsoft Teams channel

Use pull request URLs to initiate discussions around PRs

For more details about the app, please take a look at the documentation or install the app.

We’re constantly at work to improve the app, and soon you’ll see new features coming along, including the ability to create bulk subscriptions for all the repositories in a project. Please give the app a try and send us your feedback using the @azure repos feedback command in the app or on Developer Community.

    Hi,
    As usual,” You can only link the Azure Repos app for Microsoft Teams to a project hosted on Azure DevOps Services at this time.”
    Do you have date for the support of the On Premise version ?

      Not at this time David. That said, you can use the Azure DevOps Server integration on the Teams app store to monitor your On premise repositories and subscribe to PR events. Thanks!

      This and the other new apps are based on new technology that allows us to provide advanced chatops functionality like URL previews, actions, etc. The old Azure DevOps app only supported listening to events with notifications whereas the new apps allow you to do a lot more.

        I had the same question and thanks Terence for asking this. I think it is worth mentioning in the post about this difference, so that user who are already using current Azure DevOps utilizes this new app.
