Audio and Video call on every browser
Now just Edge support audio and video calls. Making Teams work on all main browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox) should be a priority . I need Teams to work with all my customers and I can't force them to install software on their machines.
Support for audio, video and screen sharing is now supported on Google Chrome.
This is needed yesterday! For EDU there are many needs for one-off guest access for class discussions and expert sessions, not having this requires a large organization to find alternatives to something that should already be built-in at this point of development in Microsoft Teams - Desktop Sharing and Video are pretty basic services for video conferencing, no?

ive enabled video calls via my chrome extension in version 0.2.0.
You can find it here:

i have created a chrome extension that enables the calling function for MS Teams.
Basically it sets a value in the settings that enables this function:
angular.element(document).injector().get('callingSupportService').oneOnOneCallingEnabled = true
angular.element(document).injector().get('settingsService').appConfig.enableCallingChromeOneOnOne = true
Yup, UK EDU O365 tenant here having to stay with other providers until this becomes a reality.
We would appreciate if you can include audio/video calls along with desktop sharing at the earliest and it should also support on all standard browsers.
We are moving to Zoom meetings and pstn this year because of the lack of Chrome support. Sucks to have to pay for something else we already have because you guys do not fully support the most used browser in the world.
Works fine on Edge, but unavailable (greyed out) on other browsers. When changing User-Agent in Chrome to Edge it is also working fine in Chrome. Please Microsoft, start supporting Chrome and other browsers!

We're a large organization with 9K+ users of Office365/Azure services and SfB/Teams are essential to us.
We'd like to make a full transition to Microsoft Teams as soon as possible, but the lack of in-browser support for Audio/Video/PSTN is a major roadblock for us.
We operate a diverse environment with a variety of devices and requirements. Being able to deliver the full-feature experience in the browser would greatly help to drive the adoption of Teams.
Given the recently announced plan to rebuild Edge using Chromium as a base, I would image this is already in the works!
Please consider adding Audio/Video/PSTN support for major browsers.
Until this is supported my 1000 users (and counting) goes with alternatives such as Slack or appear.in instead. Microsoft, you really need to get a better understanding of how people (users) think, and prioritize accordingly.
How has this not been done yet? Now that Edge is going Chromium can you please get this working in Chrome.
This is lazy stuff. I get that only so many man hours can be spent on this but seriously.... it's basic conferencing.
We run RDS environments and the fat client gives us too much grief so we need to use the web client. However, Server 2016 doesn't have Edge browser so we have no video.
I've started recommending clients look at non-MS collaboration tools because MS simply can't get their act together.
We need teams telephony in Firefox.
Please, Please, Please, add the use of Video in Chrome. We are losing adoption of Teams and moving to Zoom for this kind of work.
Plz make Teams work on every browser
Is at least audio available in other browsers? I am not able to successfully establish an audio call using Chrome of Firefox

Microsoft needs to get its act together on this, it just screwed up my whole roll out of Office 365. You want our business you better get this fixed.

If compatibility for all browsers is a heavy lift, I suggest prioritizing Google Chrome support. Chrome has significant *********** on PC and Mac and even has a significant user base in the government. My main motivator is I want to use Teams externally with customers and collaborators without requiring them to download a client, as requirements like that tend to stunt adoption (I use the Teams desktop client myself, but I can't force my customers to download it just to meet with my company).
Andrew Becker commented
Completely agree. I need full browser support for teams otherwise I will never switch to office365 for my organization. Can we get an update to when we think this will be released?
