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.
We know many of you are waiting for a Teams client for Linux, and we’re pleased to confirm we’re actively working on it. Stay tuned for more information.

We need this urgently
Excellent news, looking forward to it. I'm currently using the teams-for-linux snap, which I believe is effectively an embedded web application; the lack of tabs and windows prevents rapid switching between channels and chats and files, reducing the utility of the application compared with Skype, Slack, etc.
I trust that the application will leverage the existing distro packaging and distribution mechanisms.
Again, looking forward to see this.

This would be super useful! I've installed teams-insiders in the hopes it will pop up soon.
$ echo 'deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/ms-teams/ stable main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft-teams.list
$ curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install teams-insiders
