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.

        We still need a fully featured Skype for Business solution for Linux. There's now a chance to integrate everything (including voice/video (group) chats and screen-sharing) into a Teams Linux client that integrates into Office 365 and works x-platform. If that is still not happening, I don't see how you will be able to compete with slack, Hangouts etc.

        I would support the case for a Linux client - webapps are fine in an emergency or for occasional ad-hoc use, but they are often very poor at notifications, so I find I tend to miss a lot of stuff that's going on.

        The SwiftKey team would greatly benefit from a native Linux client, as we have a large Linux user base too.

        I agree, this would be useful. The webapp is a passable stopgap on Linux, but it doesn't have proper notification support (on my setup, at least).

        Though, to play devils advocate here (Though I agree with OP), most people have a web browser open anyway. So really, having a desktop client is actually the thing that's causing people to have "one more thing" open.
