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.

whats the status on this Warren? - your last update is 10 months old.
Want to see if this is still in the works?

This is an absolute MUST HAVE. As several others mention, we have tons of internal web services that do not need or use HTTPS, and we are not going to change them just to be able to add them in Teams. BUT this makes us consider alternatives to Teams as a collaboration hub for our Managed Services...way to go, Microsoft.
We need "HTTP" web site in Teams, there are same reasons which are above request...
PLEASE make this happen. Many companies use internal sites without HTTPS.

Warren. Please let us know the update of this idea.
Shortened urls can redirect to non-https links
Works for internal links as well, use as a workaround!
Any updates? Timeline please?
Please add this soon. We need this for our organization.
Please fix this is necessary for our team!

This is a pathetic limitation.
Really hate the way tech companies are forcing PKI into places where it is not only unneeded, it is literally unwanted.
Fix this ********. Or we will find a tool that suits our needs.

Any new updates on this front? It has been a long time of being worked on.
Hi. I believe by this long time you commented, if it is being really worked, we could at least have a timeline for arrival of the update. So, can you please give us a date for roll out?
Need this for internal sites
We need support for http for internal links.
It is marked as "working on it" since 2018, but looks like not on the priority?
Interested as all the rest in as it's been 2 years since idea share and pretty long since last update.
Also hoping this feature would be added. Would be extremely usefull for internal website.
