Si de verdad Microsoft ama Linux, que lo demuestre
Over 5,000 votes and Microshaft still hasn’t responded.
Edit: not to mention, this post is going to be 1 year old in 2 days.
Edit 2: 1 year old now

For as much work as you guys do with Ubuntu now, one would expect some more feature parity. Please update the client!
Ben Pearson commented
Different platforms should have feature parity! This is 2021, there should be no real excuse for it these days. Many other companies do achieve this or at least get feature parity within months not years!
We should vote for each features, with 5000 votes then it is better for Microsoft to track each feature and it's implementation.
I sincerely doubt that something will change...
During the outage today (lunch time, swedish time) it was nice to see that the Blur Background feature could be enabled in Linux and that it works great..
Sadly after the outage I had lost access to blurring my background once again.
4,997 votes... Will Microsoft actually respond when it hits 5,000?
Pranav Patel commented
Background feature is much required...
Background effect is essential!
Ali Al-Hassan commented
I would love to see the same featutre and user interface of the Windows version on Linux version.
Please add background effect for Linux as well
The Teams UX on Linux is not remotely (pun intended) comparable to that of other platforms!
Please bring out a full-featured client ASAP
A great first step would be a proper grid view.
Maik Töpfer commented
the feature additions of the last months were really minor. I am so desperately waiting for grid view and blurred background.
any updates on this ?
When are 3x3 or 7x7 grids coming? It would improve my Linux+Teams experience a lot.
Blur or background image needed urgently - available in every competitor and the windows teams version....
when we will have the Blur Background on Linux please ?

I also can not switch organization. This is highly problematic for professional use of the client.
1) Cannot switch organization.
2) Voice/video quality is not the same as with other clients (Zoom, Jitsi, ...) This is especially problematic as there is research on the impact of bad voice quality (The work presented is not seen as important when the voice quality is bad)
3) Sync problems with voice/video
4) Reconnect when using SSO certificates (Especially bad in meetings - which also takes away professionalism...)
