How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Linux client

My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

    Our teams moved from Microsoft Lync/Skype for Business to Slack for the Linux support. As we have even more Linux users now, we need a native solution comparable to the Electron app of Slack, before we can switch back to the Microsoft ecosystem.

    I am forced to use MS Teams; good product but not so much for linux users (I have linux and windows 10 laptops as I need to work on Windows every time and then). I am managing by using teams on my phone/tablet and/or web version but I would be more happy to use anything which has a native client for linux ....

    The Linux Client for Teams on GitHub is very cool, because you can now share your Screen. That’s pretty cool if you share your Screen over Window, MAx, Linux and Mobile Devices. Please MS, take this a project from the community and use your developer power to create a native Linux Client for Teams.

    It would be nice to have the Linux client or at least make the web interface better (right now you are not able to make 1-1 audio/video calls using web interface on Linux).

    Hi guys, It would be nice ti have native Team client for Linux distros.
    Please, consider this for the greater good.

    When trying to get support from Azure or talking with Azure experts they prefer teams, but our DevOps team is only using Linux PCs, so this is ridiculous. I actually made the support rep use Jitsi a few days ago so he can take screenshots of the portal as I see it.

    Hi! Actually, not having a Linux client is an issue wich blocks further users to adopt Teams.

    Please, consider to accelerate a decision!

    We need to know if we have to continue using other products.

    I run Fedora as my primary while my corp uses MS Teams. I'm able to live with the web app but not having video conference support is a true loss for me. A linux client would be great!
