As a big advocate for Office
Microsoft Teams will only be included with NEW installations of Office 365 ProPlus dependent on the channel you are using. The below shows the schedule of the introduction but this is subject to change.
|Monthly Channel||Version 1902||March 4, 2019|
|Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)||Version 1902||March 12, 2019|
|Semi-Annual Channel||Version 1902||July 9, 2019|
Important Note:Teams are also included with the following new installations:
Office 365 Business, starting with Version 1901, which was released on January 31, 2019. Office 365 Business is the version of Office that is included with certain business plans, such as the Microsoft 365 Business plan and the Office 365 Business Premium plan.
Office for Mac, starting with Version 16.21, which was released on January 16, 2019. Office for Mac comes with any plan that includes Office 365 Business or Office 365 ProPlus. For more information, see Microsoft Teams installations on a Mac.

What about existing deployments of Office 365 ProPlus?
At the time of this post, it is not possible to get Microsoft Teams if you have an existing deployment of Office 365 ProPlus. Microsoft has announced that in Version 1906 Microsoft Teams will be shipped to existing deployment running this version. The table below gives an indication of when we can expect the rollout of Teams but if you are using Monthly Channel (Targeted) you should be seeing Microsoft appearing approximately on 25th June 2019.

|Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)||To be determined||September 10, 2019|
|Semi-Annual Channel||To be determined||January 2020|
If you don’t want Teams to be added to existing installations of Office 365 ProPlus when you update to a new version, you can use Group Policy or the Office Deployment Tool to exclude the installation.
Always keep up to date.Make sure you’re using the most current version of the Office Deployment tool available on the Microsoft Download Center.
Be sure you’re using at least version 4867.1000 of the Administrative Template files (ADMX/ADML), which were released on June 7, 2019.
Temporarily, the name and help text for this policy setting is available only in English. The name and help text will be available in the usual set of languages by June 14, 2019.
