The request for 1:1 calling Chrome support is still “on the backlog”.
1:1 calling works in Edge.
Group calling and meetings works for Edge & Chrome.
I hope to have more information to share soon.
Screensharing and desktop sharing and video work in chrome on linux (you need an extension for screensharing: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/microsoft-teams-screen-sh/dhheiegalgcabbcobinipgmhepkkeidk)
How come this is "on the backlog" since it actually works when you spoof the user agent to either edge or chrome on windows?
We’re pleased to announce the Teams client for Linux is now available for preview. Please see details at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Microsoft-Teams-is-now-available-on-Linux/ba-p/1056267.
Please check out the Q&A forum here – https://docs.microsoft.com/answers/topics/teams.html.
Seems that most of the functionality works in chrome (72) on linux (ubuntu 16.04) already, although only in meetings scheduled from teams. So you cannot initiate a one:one call from the browser (the webapps says I should switch to Chrome, LOL. I guess hte only allowed chrome is chrome on windows).
The extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/microsoft-teams-screen-sh/dhheiegalgcabbcobinipgmhepkkeidk enables screensharing (with screen/window selection).
You don't need to spoof the useragent string for teams to work anymore.
Chrome only supports audio on linux. When is the video coming (reported as "coming soon" in February: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/9-tips-for-meeting-with-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/151444)?
Audioconferencing DOES work on Chrome (both Linux and Windows) and Edge, but only in meetings set up from teams (either via outlook or from teams webapp). It does not work in one-to-one chat, though :(. I think it also works from the team channels.Bartosz Radaczyński supported this idea ·
Screen sharing on Chrome and Chromium-based Edge is now supported. We also have released support for joining meetings from Safari, Firefox and IE browsers, with some limitations. For details, please see the following link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#browsers
the extension does work (at least for me on Linux in chrome 72).
