  1. Introduce Freedesktop dbus notifications for Linux

    Teams currently uses a custom notification which can't be controlled, and it breaks in tiling window managers such as Sway or i3. (Steals focus and position is always on the middle of the screen.)

    The request for 1:1 calling Chrome support is still “on the backlog”.

    Completed items:
    1:1 calling works in Edge.
    Group calling and meetings works for Edge & Chrome.

    I hope to have more information to share soon.

  7. Native window borders and header in Linux app

    Linux has many desktop environments each of them has different kind of windows managers that provides window borders and window header with close,minimize buttons, etc.

    Teams ignore window manager at all ant provides its own window controls for main application window.

    This is looks ugly because it does no comply with system look and feel. Also there is no window borders so it is hard to resize main window.
    No shadows and other effects, because most of them related to default windows manager.
    Look into attachment how teams window looks that in placed over web page.

    VS Code for Linux…

  9. Support Screen Sharing in web browser

    The web app doesn't support screen sharing. This would be a huge setback for the linux users as we don't have a native Linux client.

  13. Only suggest desktop app download on supported platforms.

    Only suggest desktop app download on supported platforms. Unless the desktop app can run on Linux DotNet, it's not applicable to a client using Chrome on Linux, or ChromeOS.

  14. Notifications on Linux temporarily freeze the desktop window manager

    This issue is related to the one asking for native notifications....

    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39279040-introduce-freedesktop-dbus-notifications-for-linux

    I think this deserves its own issue though. Yes, an option for native notifications would definitely fix this issue for me, since I'd immediately switch to the native notifications. But if the developers of the Teams client leave the non-native notifications as a toggleable option for example, then I think they should ultimately fix this for the non-native notifications any users who prefer that.

    On my system (Arch Linux, i3wm), notifications from Microsoft Teams seem to grab focus and cause a very noticeable freeze for about a half…

  15. Use system notifications and system APIs

    Properly using system notifications instead of running your own would be a better experience for the user. It would respect their do not disturb settings and keep an alert in the notification area of the desktop.

    Using the proper system APIs for notifications would also help show notification bubbles on applications to quickly let the user know how many events he has missed.

  16. Respect X11/GNU/Linux window manager.

    Respect X11/GNU/Linux window manager.

    For example - also Chromium web browser by default
    is not decorated by window-manager
    but it can easily be configured to be managed.

  17. linux screen share red outline

    On windows, if we do a screen share, there is a red outline around the screen. However on teams for linux there is no red outline and it can be confusing which screen we are sharing.

    Also, thank you so much for teams on Linux!

  18. Making phone calls from the Teams web application

    Making phone calls from the browser app is not possible yet. This would be an alternative for a native linux app. This is the only feature I am missing now
