  1. Linux client

    My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

      Hey guys, thanks for the feedback – we hear you loud and clear. After talking this over with the Engineering team, I confirmed this will remain on the backlog and we are actively considering how to accelerate.

      Tweet me if you have any questions! @skprufo

    • Relax browser support check

      The current browser support check is too pessimistic and prevents some modern browsers from loading Microsoft Teams. For example, up-to-date Chrome on Ubuntu Linux is not considered a supported browser, even though changing the User-Agent string to Chrome on Windows allows Teams to load without any problems.

      Please consider a) just letting the browser try to load Teams, b) using feature detection instead of the User-Agent string, or c) blacklisting known broken browsers instead of whitelisting if the User-Agent string is used.

          • Audio calling from browser

            From day 1, there is no way we can make audio calls from the browser. This is a very much required features quite a few users use Linux and there is no way we can use Teams with them.

              The request for 1:1 calling Chrome support is still “on the backlog”.

              Completed items:
              1:1 calling works in Edge.
              Group calling and meetings works for Edge & Chrome.

              I hope to have more information to share soon.

              Only suggest desktop app download on supported platforms. Unless the desktop app can run on Linux DotNet, it's not applicable to a client using Chrome on Linux, or ChromeOS.

              • Making phone calls from the Teams web application

                Making phone calls from the browser app is not possible yet. This would be an alternative for a native linux app. This is the only feature I am missing now

                • Our observations. Overall we will keep using Teams but needs some work

                  Too much real estate
                  chat-content-to-app-window-size ratio is waaay too low. Only about 1/3 of my app's window contains chat content. A good chat app should display a rich chat history and occupy the bulk of the window space. Slack and Hipchat both did this much better.

                  What's wrong with single-flow chat?
                  The nested conversations make for an awkward message flow. This can make it difficult to find old messages in the chat history or to see recently posted messages

                  Now you see me ...
                  conversations *auto-collapse* after a certain number of messages (even for messages I haven't yet read!) and…

                  • Bug report: Link missing when hiding large text-body in Teams Webhook Connectors

                    So, I followed the advice given here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Where-is-the-best-place-to-report-bugs/td-p/32183

                    I posted a bug report here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Bug-report-Link-missing-when-hiding-large-text-body-in-Teams/m-p/169272#M12158

                    Apparently, it has been marked as spam, so Ill try posting the same report here:

                    I have been looking for the documentation for Teams Webhook Connectors. I did a Bing-search for 'MS teams webhook connector documentation' and found soemthing [1]. The documentation doesn't fully explain the purpose of all fields that can be included in the POST request. I hope there's a better resource out there, somewhere, but I highly doubt it.

                    To the point: An example webhook POST [2] specifies that the body of…

                      • Support Screen Sharing in web browser

                        The web app doesn't support screen sharing. This would be a huge setback for the linux users as we don't have a native Linux client.

                          • Add a setting that allows skipping the "Join conversation"/"Launching Microsoft Teams" tab by default

                            Every time I open a Teams link in my browser, it shows a tab that attempts to open the Teams desktop application. The "Join conversation"/"Launching Microsoft Teams" tab.

                            I'm on Linux, I don't have the application on my desktop, so this is pointless.

                            Add a setting, that would allow me to opt-out of ever seeing this tab again. I'd like the Teams link to take me directly to the Team web application.
