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
Microsoft, you managed it to provide an ubuntu bash shell on windows 10. that's really nice!
And you use a platform independent framework for teams. well done!!
now may you please support the growing amount of users working on linux boxes?
tear down the windows wall!!
So let me get this straight...
You seem to have no plans to push out a Linux client.
You have all browsers reporting as "unsupported" on Linux.
You have apparently disabled third party workarounds that people had put in place because you guys couldn't put on your Big Boy Pants and put out a client.
How do you expect to keep your end users who are on Linux? Unicorn **** and dreams?

Happily enjoying Teams UNTIL yesterday when:
Hmm. Your browser version isn't supported. Here's what works:
Microsoft Edge - Install for free
Google Chrome - Install for free
Mozilla Firefox - Install for free
I've already been using the latest Google Chrome 55.0.x.x (64-bit) on Linux Mint 18.1 Serena....

Came in the office today to find out that you disabled all third party teams clients for Linux (rambox for example) by implementing a browser check ... at this point it really looks like you are trying to burn trough your user base
Without Linux, we can't use it.
Switch to RocketChat (A great / active open source platform), does everything Slack does and for free if you host it yourself. Easy to integrate with anything else.
Its clients like slack work on eveythng
Why would Microsoft ever develop this without looking at Slack and it's cross platform capabilities??
Oh look we can give most of our developers Teams or we can give ALL our developers Slack. Which would you pick?
Hi Microsoft Team,
Could you update on the development status of the Linux client?
Without Linux client we can't use it.
This is ridiculous. Switching to Slack.
What about running the teams apk in an Android emulator, is that possible? Or using Wine?
I realize this is kind of pointless, but I'll ask anyway -- please make sure that every release and feature has parity on Linux, Mac, and windows from day 1.
In my organization we use Win and Linux, without Teams Linux client, we should move to Slack.
If I had the choice, I would use slack. But **** - my company forces me to use teams.

Slack here I come. This feature request is longer than 1 year.
Denis Lafrance commented
You can use this client on linux. Notifications are working fine.
Rayyan Sultani commented
This feature is essential if Microsoft is serious about Teams.
Every other feature has the label "Working on it", but for Linux there is no time because of the Guest Access? Sure... Slack is currently better anyways.
it's not lower priority...
As from the start, Microsoft use but don't get the community mind...
If you don't put that on the top of your list, can you finish your web app to make available, call, etc... ?

You cannot consider this as a lower priority, big part of the developer community is using Ubuntu and this is really needed as it is disrupting our work. Any deadline or dates on when we can expect this to be live ?
