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.

        At least enable notifications and audio support for Teams in Linux Firefox. This already would be a big help.
        If this was possible in Skype (which our Devs are using now), why is it so hard in Teams?

        @Anonymous - "are you really working on this ?"

        No, that's why it's "on the backlog", rather than in "working on it" state.

        (Not that being in "working on it" state is any guarantee of progress, though.)

        Top 5 most requested feature and in developer world more important than all the other features that you're working on. Please do something before it's too late. Once you miss the opportunity there is no coming back.

        Chiming in, Linux support is an important factor for us as well, as we're deciding where to go as hipchat sunsets.

        Come on !
        are you really working on this ?

        if you really want to be an alternative to slack, this is a must.

        A strong Linux user here, using Windows or Mac isn't an option. I found out that Teams mostly works in Chrome (though not in Chromium or Firefox), but still a meeting doesn't recognize my camera and screensharing isn't supported.

        It would be enough to recognize my camera and add screensharing support to Chromium, although full Linux client is always better.

        I'm using Ubuntu here, so supporting Wayland protocol for screensharing would be ideal. Look at https://github.com/foss-project/green-recorder how it does it.

        No fear, Microsoft! You are Not evil, any more. Minimum Business Support for Linux Users doesn't harm you. Go Forward, Open your mind!!!

        This is one of the very few reasons we are not considering shifting from Slack.

      • Arijit Roy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Teams should have all OS compatible. Screen sharing option should be available in web version.

        And make sure it works on Chromebooks that run Linux. As the focus shifts from Android tablets to Chromebook ones we lose the ability to join meetings or make phone calls that we had with Android only devices.

        Cant agree more with previous comments, "at least make screen sharing work on the web version...."
