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.
Hey guys, thanks for the feedback – we hear you loud and clear. After talking this over with the Engineering team, I confirmed this will remain on the backlog and we are actively considering how to accelerate.
Tweet me if you have any questions! @skprufo

Have we got any news on this and is there any work arounds in the meen time without loosing functionalities ?
Julian Alarcon commented
For everybody that is looking for some kind of workaround, here is a good Desktop app for Linux based on electron:
Currently supported and open to contributions!
A Linux-client is fundamental for us as well. Please reconsider escalating this so we can have a native client in Linux, and not forced to use Electron-wrapped applications or the web-interface with limited functionality.

In our organization this feature is fundamental, otherwise we have to go with Slack
Please, at least add desktop sharing. I can not chose Teams in my organization until this feature is available for Linux
Jochen Lutz commented
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.
Luis Borbon commented
+1 for this application
Come on !
are you really working on this ?
if you really want to be an alternative to slack, this is a must.
Come one now what decade is this, MS can support SQL Server on Linux but not Teams?
We have bunch of linux users and really needs Microsoft Teams Linux client.
If you want to be some kind of a player...you need this.
slack has native client ,hipchat ditto.... come on guys.... follow the lead of the visual studio code crew.
