    OK, after a few days of testing I have found the following issues

    1. It seems the settings file reverts when closing the app. I've tried setting the settings.json file to read-only and so far I've encountered no issues.

    2. Audio and Video does not work. You cannot set an audio and or video device and when trying to join a meeting the client references the web link to open in a browser.

    All other functions seem fine but this does appear to not be a perfect work around.

    I'm not sure if this will help you at all but I was able to connect to GCC High using Teams Insiders 1.3.0.25560. It wasn't as easy as just using the client to sign in but I did at least find a solution that appears to work, see below.

    Tested on Kubuntu 2010 Beta 1

    1. Download the .deb installer and install it.
    2. Remove the teams client using apt.
    3. Install the 'teams-insiders' client using apt.
    4. Launch Teams Insiders, try signing on. It will fail with the "We're sorry---we've run into an issue" loop. Keep pressing "Try again" until you see an error in the lower left like below:

    Error code --337 ERR_SPDY_PROTOCOL_ERROR
    Failed to load: https://teams.microsoft.com

    This may take a few attempts.
    5. Completely close the client.
    6. Use vim or whatever text editor you like to open "$HOME/.config/Microsoft/'Microsoft Teams - Insiders'/settings.json"
    7. Using vim do a global search and replace using :g/teams.microsoft.com/s//gov.teams.microsoft.us/ or whatever the global replace is in your preferred text editor.
    8. Save the file :wq or equivalent save and quit.
    9. Launch the Teams Insiders client again.

    If all went well, Teams should launch without issue, if not just remove your "$HOME/.config/Microsoft/Microsoft Teams - Insiders" directory and start again from step #4.
