Updated June 15, 2021: We have updated the content below for additional clarity. Thank you for your feedback
When you create a team in Microsoft Teams, a SharePoint team site will automatically get created in tandem and you are also able to connect any existing SharePoint team site to a new team in Microsoft Teams. These are called Microsoft Teams connected team sites.
For private channels in Microsoft Teams, a SharePoint team site automatically gets created and is known as a channel site. These Teams connected team sites and channel sites are managed differently than your typical SharePoint team site.
We are making small updates to the viewing and management experience of Teams connected team sites and channel sites to simplify the end-user experience.
