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.

Choice between Mac notifications and 'Teams notifications'?
You mean the choice between *actual* notifications and some godawful, spawn-of-the-devil, embarrassing abortion of fake notifications that ignore the standards there for a reason, embarrass you as a company and make everyone think you're still in 1998 'Let's take over the world using our evil' mode?
Just remove the f******s, kill them with fire, spread their ashes to the four winds, spend the five minutes every other developer in the entire world has spent to do it properly, and we'll say no more about it, ok?
My desk by Monday please.
I love Windows but I don't think anyone wants a choice. On the Mac it should be integrated. Plus notifications don't appear for channels associated with O365 groups. And in the browser the notifications don't work at all, except for email. Teams is great but this is maddening.
Please also allow multiple accounts on Desktop app like mobile one (without having to switch).

Any Update... Its close to six months from your last update.
If I am on a fullscreen window of any other application, I will only hear the "chime" of teams notification, but in order to see the notification, I have to stay on same windows as MS Teams.
It's Monday again, and guess what... I'm frustrated!

⏲tik tak.....still waiting "patiently"
Perhaps Microsoft wants us all to switch to Windows. Oh wait, their Windows client does not support native notifications as well. Too bad...
I feel sorry for all Microsoft developers celebrating the oncoming weekend. Must be very depressing for them, knowing that next Monday their users will launch Microsoft Teams and being frustrated for the 100th Monday in a row by the lack of native notifications. What a **** of a job...

Is there an ETA for when this will be live? I can't have meetings on Teams and share my screen because random notifications keep popping up even with DND turned on.
It should also work on Linux, I don't know of any 3rd app that doesn't obey the Do Not Disturb on linux other than Ms Teams
Please, fix it as soons as possible, some critical work messages poped up during presentations more than once

On my six month old 16" Macbook Pro with 64gb RAM, Teams takes at least 20 seconds to show the notification after it's been received. Not that I don't get a notification popup, it's just a blank white window for 20 seconds. I can switch to teams, find the unread conversation in the sidebar, read it, and respond to it faster than it takes the notification to show. It's a pathetic implementation of notifications and this simple feature has taken an embarrassing amount of time to fix. "Working on it"? Doubtful.

Shame... I would be so ashamed to use phantom window for displaying notifications to the user. This is... a real Microsoft level of expertise. I'm not even surprised. I'm just astonished by the lack of the UX your company is delivering to users, and yet, still have users. Disgraceful. I'm truly disgusted by every product you've created. The only good software from your company by far is Windows XP which sadly lost support and is discontinued. So, your current best software is NULL.

Would you please be so kind and give us this feature. We would be highly satisfied if you do so.
And maybe give us an update, if cannot provide us with this?!
One week since my last comment, no sign of any progress... Two years since my first comment, no sign of any progress... How many more comments do I need to place?

Y'all have been working on this for 546 business days!! There's no way this should take this long. Integrating with notification APIs is like Software Development 101 these days. How can y'all still not have this deployed? I don't think a single person in this thread wants to keep the existing notification system, we want the native notification system. Just make it happen! PLEASE!!
Remember who you're talking to here. Mac users are used to almost everything conforming to the same set of rules. Apple admittedly has us spoiled. But it is to y'alls advantage to play by those rules in order to make this set of users happy. And right now you're failing miserably.

Today a colleague sent me an angry message because he thought I was ignoring him because I missed the notifications when he mentioned me in a chat.
Teams frustrates me more than any other app on my Mac at the moment and not having native notifications is the biggest issue with Teams.

Think about a cute little cat meowing, purring and looking forward for this feature. Do you really wanna see this kitten cry? :-(
Please enable this feature after two years of progress... For me, for us and for the little, cute cat!
This would certainly be a very nice feature when it is delivered. I do experience the lag on notifications from teams and often times I need to hover over the notification to get it to display details so my experience is much like others have noted. That and the ability to set Do Not Disturb for all notifications would be extremely helpful. Hopefully this can be released soon. thank you
O god, this is taking AGES!
