How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Need prompt before updating on MAC

Every time there is an update for the desktop client (at least on Mac) the client updates automatically without prompting the user, which always seems to invalidate the session. There should be an option to prompt the user before the client is updated. (similar to how VS Code does it, perhaps)

    Also, just a note to Warren, it's Mac not MAC. As in Macintosh computer not Media Access Card, as in a ethernet card or the like.

    As for the suggestion, the notification for updating should follow Apple's Human Interface guidelines, specifically the ones used for macOS upgrades that allow the user to defer till the end of the day or something like that. Basically transparency would be great.

    Talk to your Yammer colleagues, it prompts to update as well. Also multi-monitor resumption after updating is goofy and takes back main monitor/laptop display.

    Spotify handles this well. They show a visual prompt that there is an update ready to be installed. Updates install when you next launch the program.
