Support for http and not only https
Only possible to use HTTPS urls as tabs. Would be nice if HTTP would work as well.
As you may be aware, HTTP is inherently less secure compared to HTTPS, and modern browsers are making it increasingly difficult to access http:// links; many of them require users to bypass an intermediate page with a scary security warning.
We take users privacy and security very seriously, and we also take popular UserVoice feature requests very seriously. We investigated many approaches to address this feature request in a way that would also pass security review. One way would have required tenant administrators to manually add domains/intranet sites to an “allow list”, – we received feedback that be unwieldy and add work for IT departments.
Even if that were acceptable however, we’d have a situation that http:// URLs would only ever work on the desktop client. Users who clicked on the tab using the browser client would see the same scary warning that users accessing the same URL in a browser tab would see.
Given these limitations, we are no longer planning to deliver this feature request.

Come on Microsoft... There's a serious need to support http sites on an intranet. We're a software development organization and we'd like to provide users access to unsecured development web sites. We're all grown-ups here and know the risks.
We need HTTP enabled
We have a web developer creating a new web site for our organization, and he needs feedback from multiple staff members. It would make sense to put this in teams, so we can provide and create content and media for the new website.
The temp website is http:// not https://
Seems like an ideal project for using teams. but we are unable collaborate on this one.
My company has just moved over to Azure including Teams.
When setting up channels it would be useful to add tabs for internal web UI's, however, they are http based. not https.
Adding ssl to an internal site would be overkill, so we are left with saving the UI's to good old favourites and not using Teams.
Kind of defeats the object.
I would like to properly integrate Teams into our working practices but issues like this prevent us doing so.
My company just deployed Teams and this issue came up literally the first week. After a short google search I see that this has been requested for nearly two years. UserVoice, indeed lol.
@Warren, any updated? It seems like it would be a slam dunk to enable a different protocol as a prefix in a URL.
We allso have issues whit this, please update.
Any update on this?
any update pls?

Unbelievable that there hasn't been an update in over a year. Is this now off the table? What's the hold up?

I don't think they are working on it and I believe they don't want to support http. Why would it else take so long to implement this.

Hi are you still working on this issue?
It seems crazy that linked web page tabs don't load in the web app.

Update this please....

Can we get an update to allow http in addition to https? Or has this fallen to the bottom of the project list?
I want my team to have access to certain referenced websites. Why is there no way to add site URLs or hotlinks to a in Teams?

I enabled a local http server to also use https with a self signed certificate. The Microsoft Teams desktop application still does not load the now https link even though other browsers work (with trusting the certificate). If the Teams application could trust my self signed certificate the tab would work as https. Wish I would get a trust certificate dialog page on first load of the tab within the Microsoft Teams application..
Is there an update on this?
We have internal website that are http only - and would like to add these to our Teams.
What is the Timeline on this?
What is the timeframe for supporting http?
still waitin :(
