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 know so many of our customers use Linux and we want Teams to be available for everyone. Stay tuned for more information soon.
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.
Screen share for Chrome is internal testing, and we are hoping to release it this quarter. We’ll keep you posted.
the extension does work (at least for me on Linux in chrome 72).
Hate to be the bearer of bad news. This item has been declined. There will be no work to hide or remove the reply button.
As many people have commented, a big ask is to help improve how people distinguish between giving a reply and starting a new message.
For that the focus will be on this item. “Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`”
