How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Open in Word on Mac

When you have a doc in Files (e.g. Word / PowerPoint), there is the option to open in Word Online, PowerPoint Online but not in the native app. You then have to open in the desktop app from Online.

Can we add the functionality to open directly in the desktop app?

    I agree. You have this functionality built correctly in the online version of OneDrive. You can select the office app online or local. Give us the ability to click the "..." and open online or on desktop.

    I am currently using a mac, so sorry if this is already available for PC.
