Microsoft recently pushed several terminology updates to the Power Platform.
Dataverse is the new name of the Common Data Service, the database leg of the Microsoft Power Platform. Its lightweight version that runs in Microsoft Teams is now called Dataverse for Teams.
Earlier this month, Microsoft already made terminology updates:
|Legacy term||Current term|
|Entity, entities||Table, tables|
|Record, records||Row, rows|
|Option set, multi select option sets|
Notice how the new terms match the Microsoft Lists terms.
