How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

    -1, Let's just leave MS behind instead? Slack works great!
    I need to agree to getting unwanted e-mails from MS in order to post a comment in the forum, are you kidding? (fake e-mail address ftw)

    Actually I have seen this uservoice and want to ask what you think how long it willt take to develop the Linux-Client, because in my team the would use Teams, but there are many Linux-users and so it´s not possible at the moment.
    Please make a Linux-Client!

    Please don't be an *** and just create a native Linux Teams client. You also built VS Code for Linux, so why do that if you're not doing this? Teams is used by the very same people..

    And no, the browser variant is not satisfactory compared to a native client. For the people who do seem to think so: go ahead, uninstall Teams, start using the browser thing and stop bothering us with that nonsense.

    This is pathetic both Skype for business and Teams desktop clients are not available for Linux.

    Our teams moved from Microsoft Lync/Skype for Business to Slack for the Linux support. As we have even more Linux users now, we need a native solution comparable to the Electron app of Slack, before we can switch back to the Microsoft ecosystem.

    I am forced to use MS Teams; good product but not so much for linux users (I have linux and windows 10 laptops as I need to work on Windows every time and then). I am managing by using teams on my phone/tablet and/or web version but I would be more happy to use anything which has a native client for linux ....

    The Linux Client for Teams on GitHub is very cool, because you can now share your Screen. That’s pretty cool if you share your Screen over Window, MAx, Linux and Mobile Devices. Please MS, take this a project from the community and use your developer power to create a native Linux Client for Teams.
