Integrate with MacOS notifications
Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.
We are continuing to work on this feature. As with Windows notifications, we are also doing work to give users the choice between Teams notifications & Mac notifications.
We will update you as work progresses.
I'm tired of having my notifications appear when I am presenting. I'm also tired of people being ignored here for months.

There is one thing Microsoft needs to understand. Mac users are not Windows users. If you want to be successful on a Mac platform you need to make your software optimized for macOS.
Teams is a great software and you guys keep improving it constantly, but it is designed for Windows in the first place. So, on a Mac it still looks like a Windows app (fonts, design elements, native scrolling, etc.). If at least, you could give us the native macOS notifications, we may ignore the fact the app looks like Windows... Thank you!

I can't even begin to imagine what kind of internal corporate breakdown has to have occurred at Microsoft to allow something this important, and obvious, to go unaddressed for *so* long. Shame.

Just starting with a Mute, Call Answer/End, Camera On/Off, and Raise Hand would be a great start. Zoom and other conferencing apps have this abruptly missing when attending Teams meetings.
This is a daily annoyance -- please reprioritize this.
Ditto . . . This would be a great help!
Yes, please please please – are there any updates on this? The last word from you, Microsoft, was in February ... can you at least let us know how close we are to seeing this? It's super, super annoying to have Teams notifications show up behind (thus, making them pointless since you can't see them) native MacOS notifications.
Any update on this? My team is missing notifications because they appear behind the native notifications. Additionally, Teams notifications do not respect "Do Not Disturb" mode, leading to people quitting the app entirely.
We're still weighing Slack vs Teams, but if Teams doesn't support native notifications, we have no choice but to go with Slack.

Any updates on when this might actually happen?
MS, you have to make this happen ASAP ! Custom badly written notifications are BAD ! Please do something about it !

This would be amazing! Have multiple screens as well. So I might be looking at one screen and then have to scramble to get my pointer back to the screen where Teams is to unmute myself. PLEASE!
+1 asking for Touch Bar support in Teams.
Any update as to when this will be rolled out. We are maybe moving from slack to teams and the notification functionality is a deal-breaker for me.
Touch Bar controls for Teams would be very helpful to mute and unmute during calls. Same feature is available on Skype for Business, I think this should be available for Teams as well as both are from the same company.
Wow, four years and still can't do it...
This is basic functionality guys. Slack had no problem doing this the day they launched.
Please make this a priority.

Please respect OS native behavior and launch features which the user is already accustomed with. Don't reinvent the wheel.
Please Integrate with MacOS Notifications. The earlier the better, not 2023.

I'm desparately missing a mute button for teams in the touch bar.
Working with lots of windows, desktops and virtual boxes makes it hard to navigate back to Teams in order to push the mute/speak button.
it's been 2.1 years since replayed "now being worked upon".
how many sprints is that, how many sprints should this take ?
