Make Personal Account available on Desktop and Web app
Thank you for your continued feedback! The team is currently working to bring Teams for your personal life experience to desktop and web soon. We will share an update as soon as one is available so stay tuned for updates!
You are pushing Teams for every Microsoft 365 user in the Enterprise space. It is somewhat unfortunate that Skype for Business has already been End Of Life'd, and Skype is not truly a viable communications product any longer. Yet, when attempting to set up a personal use Teams account, I'm pointed to a far inferior and basically EOL Skype product. In fact, I have Skype turned off on all of my desktops upon startup, and rarely start the application at all.
Last time I checked, the Surface Pro series are some of the main target devices for products such as these...and they run Win10.
Skype is not a valid substitute product...sorry...really need to get this fixed! Other products beckon, and link with my OneDrive and Office apps well enough...
Now at work, they're all on WhatsApp on the web.
Microsoft can catch all the users with a desktop version. I bet this can become a WhatsApp killer (and more people buying MS subscription accounts along the way)
Once the desktop version is available, Teams will skyrocket!
This is the one reason my colleagues stick to WhatsApp during working hours.
Get a desktop version and everybody switches!!
Don't put it on the back burner...
This would be extremely useful for family members who don't use their phones in the same way. A desktop version would make planning together easier.
I'm considering using Teams for and NGO and the cloud synchronization for files in channels is one of the stoppers, as formerly they were using google drive
This could become a WhatsApp killer! But only if you can also use it from the desktop for when you're at work.
Yes agreed, it is time to make Teams available on Desktop and web apps.
What is the ETA on this? Its the only blocker from keeping my family from jumping in.

Firstly, the desktop version of Teams for personal would be very appreciated. This will allow me to do some advanced settings and to send easily some files from my PC.
Secondly, I would like to have more choice on cloud synchronization by opting Google Drive or another cloud service to synchronise some files for a given conversation group (just like the professional version of Teams).
Thirdly, I would like to have some extension apps that will increase the efficiency of tasks on Teams (just like the professional version) like creating polls, new OneNote files...
Finally, some additional abilities such as Together mode and a video-call that can simultaneously display up to 49 people on a single screen would be very appreciated if they were available on Teams for Personal. ?
By the way, Microsoft, you did a great job! ?
