Integrate with MacOS notifications
Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.
We are continuing to work on this feature. As with Windows notifications, we are also doing work to give users the choice between Teams notifications & Mac notifications.
We will update you as work progresses.
Update, please? I've missed Teams calls because I wasn't notified on my Macbook Pro.You've seriously been working on it since April of 2018? Come on. Have you heard of Covid? Millions of people are wanting to use your product right now. Fix this, please.

You seriously have Windows native notifications implemented as 'OSNotificationService'. Not 'WindowsNotificationService'...
How many years does it take Microsoft to fix a basic function that only needs to make a system call to the OS?? I guess now we can understand how Microsoft has fallen so much as an organization from their point of dominance in the 1990s.
So, Microsoft... Are you on track of disappointing us again in the month July? New month, new opportunities of disappointing loyal customers.
This is a terrible problem that I have. If I'm on a zoom call I automatically put my computer on Do Not Disturb, but I also don't want to tell everyone at work that I'm on 'Do Not Disturb." via teams. If I don't remember to close teams or put on 'Do Not Disturb' my screen share shows everyone I'm talking to my notifications, it's terrible!
We need an update ASAP on this feature.

No update since February?!?!? This is should not be this difficult.
You have to understand that this isn't a preference or a small annoyance, it's a basic usability issue. Teams notifications are hidden behind native MacOS notifications, rendering them useless. Please provide an update on when this broken aspect of Teams will be fixed.
The fact that notifications will still come pouring in, despite being on a Teams call or in the middle of a screen share, would be reason enough to release this feature already.
Please do this - the default notifications are pretty bad and should respect do not disturb and look the same as all other macos notifications

is the MacOS Teams development team one intern who spends their remote working day watching TikTok?
Please please push this forward in your release cycle, there will be thousands of delighted users when they can manage all of their notifications in one place.

When working on my Mac i miss more TEAM notifications thankfully I loaded the app on my iPhone and those notifications work properly.
Still have to work with Teams, they removed slack ...
I still hate posting code in teams so much that we just dont use it anymore.
Removed all notifications, better to be not notified than to live with this windows notification ****. No swipes, no customization, just horrible windows stuff ...

how this was ever considered usable in the first place is beyond me.

@Alex can we please get some kind of update on this? There's no way this should take this long. Over a year since it was supposed to be released to the public within the next quarter or so.

Some great announcements from Apple related to stackable/collapsable notifications in the notification center for macOS Big Sur. Oh wait... Microsoft Teams doesn't support native notifications. Microsoft you REALLY got to get your act together on this!

I would love to see Teams notifications as native Mac OS notifications. Please release this soon!
The great Microsoft Teams quiz:
1. When will Microsoft Teams receive native macOS notifications?
A) In 2 months.
B) In 2 years.
C) In 2 centuries.
D) Never. Microsoft does not care about their customers.
Wow.. after 2 years and they are still working on it. And this is an enterprise level app?
