There should be a quick way of viewing all the public teams in my organization outside of search.
This request is still working its way through the backlog. Nothing additional to report yet.
Totally agree with @Torriente. We need a directory of all teams (similar to Yammer groups directory). Our customers are purchasing 3rd party products to get that functionality - to have a directory of all teams tagged by business function, activity and business unit.

Any update on this? Why can't we search for public teams?
I would like to add that it should be possible to search for all teams, public and private, within the organisation. This is to prevent the creation of multiple teams for the same topic. I work in a consultancy firm and we create teams per customer projects. Since it is not possible to know if there is already a team for a specific customer, people end up creating several teams for the same customer.

Do you have any update on this feature ? Last one was in august 2018...

Would also very much like for our org that is just switching to Teams.

This would be a very helpful feature to have in our organization.

Centering teams around products we are attempting to inner source makes this a crucial lacking feature. The ability for people to discover team without knowing anything about naming is needed.
This is absolutely imperative for my organization. Optimally, it would display a list of all members and have the opportunity to click on each person to see their profile.

We need this feature. We've got 45k users migrating to Teams from Hipchat and no way to browse public teams to find them.

I thought for the longest time we didn't have any public teams because when I went to the directory nothing showed up. Then I saw another coworker who when they clicked "Join at Team", had a few teams show up. Apparently there is an algorithm that is showing teams that it thinks you'll be interested in. I agree with others I'd rather have the ability to browse the list and decided for myself.
In addition the search is not very helpful. It won't match a word within a team name, but only if it starts with the name. So if I had a team called "American Football" and I searched for "Football", it wouldn't show up. It would be really helpful if both of these issues could get on the "In Progress" list. :)

My new hires are continuously needing me to add them to teams as they cannot find them. Please add the ability to browse all public teams please. thx!
The join or create team view is misleading too - it does not give any hint there would be more Public teams available. It simply selects some seemingly random teams, letting people think only they are available.
I'm sure every user of Teams would like to get this resolved - if they only knew there are more teams in their organization, outside their small graph bubble. Warren, please make this move up in the backlog.

Cannot find public Teams! Cannot roll this out with no way to find public teams.

Any update on this? I sympathize with Martin's previous comment. We are rolling out to 40,000 employees and this seems like an obvious and much needed functionality.
Martin Sørensen commented
This really needs to get done rigth now!
Introducing Office 365 to an organisation of 5000+
I am met with requests for this on a daily basis.
How is it possible that it isn't already done?
Basic basic functionality....
Public Teams might as well be Private if there isn't a way discover them.

Personally, I think there are two components required:
1)all public teams shown to users when they click on add team
2) an easy way for Admins to see All teams created under the tenant (private and public)
All public teams should be shown in a list when you click the Add Team button on the bottom. No fancy algorithms are needed to decide which teams to show me. Show them all and let me pick the ones I want.
