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.

hi, any news? @Warren?
Echoing @PeterVanwetswinkel's comment....any update on this @Warren?
Really really stupid. without http support I cannot even tab my own On Prem sharepoint sites into MS teams.
Peter Vanwetswinkel commented
@warren any feedback on this 2,5 years old topic?
If someone wants to post an http link to a tab, you can put the link in a folder in SharePoint, then post a link to the SharePoint folder on the tab. The tab will show the link and you have to click it from there. It will also open in a new window and not in Teams. Not the same as the website on the tab but a decent work around.
Same comment as Guillaume !
Same here! Links to internal company http sites..... Not possible. Please update the status !

Anyone know of any workarounds for websites my company doesn't own?
We need to add a standard HTTP as a tab and can't make it HTTPS.
This is really frustrating. I need to be able to link to our organisations internal sites and I cant because they are not published with https. Is there any update on when this may be a feature, or even better, can you tell us why this is not permitted?
J. Warwick commented
There are definitely cases in our intranet where a straight http would be more convenient. Not having this may be one of those things that is "for our own good', its hard to be certain. But in balance I feel like if we get solid warning, confirm I want to do this, we should have the option.
Almost a year later, any updates?
