Microsoft teams client for smart TVs (Tizen, webOS, Android TV, etc)
Now that we are all working from home due to COVID-19, I'd like to be able to run the Microsoft Teams app natively on my smart TV (Tizen OS) so I can connect an HD camera to the TV via USB and take video calls from my living room. I want to be able to do this without having to hook up my computer to my TV. At minimum be able to cast to my TV via Chromecast or similar platform.
Please add an app for Tizen Samsung TV, Thanks
I successfully installed the latest version of teams via apk (for instance via apk mirror). The majority of features are working well. However, I have a problem with screen sharing. When I use it and I minimise teams app, there is a small window on the right side of the screen and I'm not able to maximise the app anymore even by reopening it and looking for the meeting.
Do you have any idea about how to solve it?

Choromecast button is a must for teams

Same question here .... I want to have a standalone web cam on top of the TV, and install Teams directly onto the Smart TV (Samsung) ... I don’t want to cast the image from my laptop.
The crazy part is that there is already an Andriod app. it just needs to be adapted to suit the differences in AndriodTV. That's not major. There is another major missed opportunity - OFFICE MEETING ROOMS! Imagine being able to have an Android TV device in a meeting room that can run Teams! meeting rooms issue solved! No more windows 10 PC that cause endless problems. But no. C'mon Microsoft!
jep, please add

In comparison to other tools would it be normal to add this feature.

It‘s very important for everything. Privat or for business.

Teams is mostly done for Android TV. Seems like just the ui needs to be fit.
Please Android TV.
I love this idea
This is what I strongly would like to have as an answer from esteemed Microsoft Teams developer Group.
It is a shame noone from Microsoft will attend to this issue, so much concerned from all including all old peaople passing away in Covid desease
Yes this would be nice. It could help to be connected with my parents.

Or how about a Teams receiver app for mentioned TV OS-es? So that one simply chose a different output display for a ongoing meeting or call?

I mean even at the very least Xbox One S/X/Series-S/Series-X would be nice to have. At least maybe then I'd have a use for my Kinect still!

tried an apk installation for teams on android tv and its showing only part of the screen as attached.
Anyone else who has any ugestions on the issue
Hello Eduardo Garcia
I fully agree with you. Glad to hear and would love to folllow your thread. My issue is to provide simple way for our isoladed relatives to communicate to the outside world using as simple as a SmartTV with its remote control as the only technical gadget that older people can handle (read understand)
