  7. How about the same features as Windows version?

    I don't want much - just the same features available in Windows. Blur or replace background on video chat. More than 4 video images on screen during video chat. Other video chat controls.

  8. More Mac app preferences

    In general, there needs to be more customisability in the app.

    For example: currently, when you start writing a new message in a Teams chat or channel, the composer doesn't start in 'Format' mode (where hitting the enter key inserts a new line as opposed to sending the message) - there should be an option to change the default behaviour so that the app always starts new messages in format mode.

    This is just one example, there are so many other things that could be toggled!

  9. Share to Microsoft Teams extension for documents

    It'd be great to have a listing for Microsoft Teams on macOS' built-in sharing feature (example in attached). I'd definitely use this, as I regularly take screenshots with provided screenshot shortcuts which are super handy when talking to someone on teams.

    Being able to edit a screenshot once it shows on the bottom right on macOS is a great feature, unfortunately not a lot of software utilizes that share button up top but it would be super useful on something like Teams. It's already nice being able to add the screenshot to the clipboard and then just Cmd+V'ing it into…

  10. Rephrase "On close, keep the application running"

    I don't find this language very clear. What about a pair of radio buttons:

    • keep application open when Teams main window closes
    • close application when Teams main window closes

  11. Let us add color profiles

    We use ICC color profiles as a part of our Photoshop workflows and other Adobe products that require accurate industry colors.

    When sharing files over Teams we lose that color accuracy, and the ability to flip between color profiles (Colorspace/swop). Anyway of adding that?

  12. Allow AirPods to mute/un-mute the audio

    AirPods allow you to start/stop audio by clicking on the base of the airpod. It would be nice for Teams to consume this signal and allow the audio to be muted/un-muted.

  13. Make file sharing between Mac and PC users more functional

    When I receive a Teams file link from a colleague that is a PC user and I click on the link - it automatically takes me to the web application without giving me the option to view on the desktop application. Furthermore, the link only takes me to the folder where the file is, not the actual file. When I receive a file link from a Mac users, the file opens in the regular way: web browser - asks if I want to open in desktop - takes me straight to the file.

  15. Screen share: share different desktops/applications

    On the Mac we can have multiple desktops. Please can we be able to choose which one of these we can share.

    Also please can we be able to choose any window/application to share like on Windows. Currently only files in the chat can be shared.

  16. Share Teams window in MacOS

    Sharing the screen is great. Sharing a window is sometimes a better way to focus on a specific thing you want to show to people. Sharing the Teams window is sometimes a great way to teach people about teams or to show files or other pages in Teams to other people.

    When you start sharing a window on MacOS, the Teams window is minimised. That is great except if you are sharing the Teams window itself. Then the sharing is lost in some kind of limbo.

    Please change it so that the window only minimises if the window selected for…

  20. Please can you integrate Teams with Outlook?

    This integration would allow seamless workflow, instead of having 2 windows open, you could have both as Tabs in one window.
