Links to channels - Open web app in Firefox and Chrome instead of forcing download of desktop app

Agree, need to use it at an environment of Remote Desktop Session Host, using with Edge Chromium and the option --app="".
c:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --app="https://teams.microsoft.com"

I agree as well. I need my users NOT to be able to download the Teams Desktop App and ONLY use the Web App on my RDS.

I agree, we need this for our RDS set up as we do not want to download the app - as Alex said, if they want the full experience they can use their local desktop.
Michael Kusic commented
We could really use this option at our organization because we have 'auto-login' devices where we want to provide a shortcut to Teams, but want them to use the web app version which will 'time-out' if they neglect to logout. For privacy/security reasons we don't want Teams sessions left open on these multi-user machines.

Please give us this functionality as the full client app is too resource and requirement hungry for remote desktops.
Jennifer K. Martin commented
Even if unable to alter the URL to default to Chrome and/or firefox web browser, allowing users to set their preference of either the Web or Desktop app (for those of us with both) would prevent unnecessary clicks and annoying repetitive tasks despite always making the same selection
Alex Janes commented
There are scenarios, such as Remote Desktop, where I do not want the app to be installed. I would rather the app just open in a web browser tab. The user can use a Teams installed client on their local desktop if they want that experience.
Agree. My company is going all in on Teams, which results in dozens of extra tabs in Chrome and clicks in general, causing me to shake my fist to the Microsoft gods dozens of times a day. Please remedy.

When using Firefox on Linux and opening links from the emails I am told to use chrome with no option to use the web app. This wastes my time as I need to take extra steps to get to where I want to be and I prefer to use Firefox over chrome.
