Please provide a Teams Linux Client for Raspberry Pi (arm32) especially due to Corona hardware crisis
Due to Corona-Crisis hardware for homeoffice etc. is limited but Raspberry Pies (Desktop Kits) are still available in larger numbers.
Would be great to get the Teams App running on Raspian (arm32 or if not possible there is a arm64 kernel).
As an alternative Chromium should be supportet including Audio/Video for the Web App of Teams.

Schools are on teams. Browser does not support classrooms. Competitors work well on arm64. Please support browser or give us an app.
woudl love to see a arm64 version too!
I can run Microsoft Teams on Pi4 arm64 on web browser. both firefox and chromium work ok.
Not all the features of the desktop app are available, but it works.
Of course a desktop app would do much better.
please support raspberry pi 400
We would love to use Microsoft Teams for Ubuntu on a Raspberry Pi. Please let a version for arm64 be available soon. Thanks you!!

This will be brilliant. It will be win win for both Raspberry Pi and Microsoft as RPi then can be used as a proper desktop for kids and Microsoft can have more *********** across range of devices. I request Microsoft team to kindly consider this option.

I agree, the Raspberry Pi 4 is an excellent low cost computer available in large numbers; I respectfully suggest Microsoft Teams should release a client software compatible with it.
+1 especially in my country the laptop prices are through the roof. If we can get this, it would benefit us ! Even if the web version is made to work on pi4's browser, it would be great!

Please support teams for Raspberry pi 64 bit os
The Pi.400 is the perfect device for students, Teams would be the killer app for education. Pls get this working on the Pi chips ASAP!
In a mad dash to get thin clients out to our employees and also deal with equipment shortages because of the pandemic, we sent some staff home with Raspberry Pi 4s. They work great for Citrix, but the lack of Teams is a killer for collaboration. Staff use Teams on their phones instead which isn't always an option. More and more low power & portable devices and laptops are moving to ARM. Please support Teams on Linux on ARM64/32!
Yep. Microsoft has added ARM64 for Windows on ARM, now we need an official version for Linux on ARM.
I would need this too. I'm currently forced to use Teams on my phone (the experience is sub-par at best).

Also for ARM64 please. Future computing architectures will be divided between x86_64 and arm64.
I agree,. In my school in Spain this would be very helpful
Just found this. Several months ago my wife bought an ancient Windows XP desktop computer that had been wiped and wouldn't even boot. I installed Debian Buster which worked great, although warning of a failing hard drive on each boot. Microsoft Teams worked great for my daughters on it too.
Now the drive is on its last legs and I've downloaded a Debian image for a Raspberry Pi 4 I ordered the day before my wife bought the PC. I only bought the 2GB version, so installing an AMD64 version of Debian on QEMU may be hard going for it, presumably the emulated processor speed will only be about 140mhz, so the chances of that working adequately are likely slim.
Before my wife got the computer we tried the Android version on an Android TV box, which worked reasonably well although there was a folder we couldn't access on it and we didn't have a webcam at the time.
An ARM64 .deb version would be great for parents.

Check out the Raspberry Pi 400. It's an official Pi 4 (but slightly faster) built into a USB Keyboard.
This is a really nice tool. I've taken delivery today and typing this reply using it.
Check it out. I expect it'll be a popular gift this year.
Whilst the normal PI (I have all variants!) is great, the Pi400 is very consumer friendly.
It's certainy capable enough in terms of hardware, and fairly low cost.
The Web App does appear to work, but oviosuly no Webcam (and I guess not audio).
Another Vote for this.
