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
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.
Google Chrome is not even close to a sufficient work around in this case. You can't share your screen over the web, as that piece isn't complete yet, I can't hold any serious meeting with this tool since I can't share my screen, there are obtuse limitations depending on how the meeting was created, with MS Teams or using another MS product, and I can't tell the presence of other team members if they are using Skype for Business as unified presence also isn't completed anywhere, let alone the web version. The bleeding app that runs on windows is a freaking Electron app don't begin to tell me how difficult it would be to port that over to Linux, or Mac's for that matter, because that's plain bull. Without a real client for Linux this is a joke. Also before you tell me that you would only release a .deb or .rpm package for this that's ridiculous make it an auto updating snap package or flatpak or app image and it will run on nearly anything in the universe. Call me when you guys have got up with the rest of modern applications.
Seriously MS Teams folks why hasn't this been created yet........There is absolutely not reason this couldn't be a thing since its freaking 2017. We have multi os teams here and this simply won't take hold at our company until this is completed.
Any idea when this will come out of review and go into planning?
This needs to happen asap since this simply will not work for any of our dev's workflow at all. How can we manage teams if you don't support and entire platform? Absolutely essential this is a native client as well. Seriously once you have it just use the open build service from opensuse to provide high quality and rigorous testing of the app across more than 26 distros.
I couldn't agree with this more right now. If you chat with a lot of people one on one the idea of only have favorites is short sighted and terrible. I need to be able to have custom groups of people I chat with a lot and a way to manage users besides have to search for them in the search box or going through recent chats which is also terrible.
This is messaging functionality that should be worked on asap since right now its a mess.
The feature team is still reviewing, there is lots of discussion about this item and I hope to have a decision soon.
This would be amazing and needs to happen yesterday. I want one app to manage this whole MS ecosystem with mail, calendar, meetings, chat, group chat and video, and reminders that actually fire for all of those pieces. There is no reason I should need multiple apps for this that would be pointless. Just give us the one stop shop to MS town already.
Definitely needs integrated into Teams. Teams looks only partially finished with only a calendar tab since most people would be looking for mail as well. Once you actually build your native linux client for teams this would also provide a great way for those using linux to access office 365 and the like mail. You would kill multiple birds with one stone to turn a phrase.
Yes this 100% needs to be a thing and would be insanely useful and helpful when managing important and less important notifications.
This item is still under review by the feature team. I have no details as to when a decision might happen.
It's unfortunate the last update from the MS Teams folks was over a month ago now on this. Any idea when this might land?
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
Let's clarify this you have this inconsistently. I can not reliably tell the status of a person in MS teams, if they are away, available, in a meeting (even just the color doesn't show the little circle just stays gray and the status says unknown until I send them a message and that sucks)
In addition we still can't accept group messages from S4B and it just automatically declines the invite and pops up a message, sometimes, in MS Teams, that I can't do anything with which also sucks.
TLDR fix the group messaging and the like between S4B and give me status' on users I may want to chat with before I interrupt them in a meeting otherwise that is useless. Also making sure my messages from MS Teams actually make it to S4B would also be delightful as well since many people at this point are not getting my messages and its affecting business.
I literally just ran into an issue where I have both Teams open and S4B open and I initiated a chat from Teams with a colleague on S4B and earlier this worked fine. My colleague sent me chat in S4B while I had both S4B and Team open, as I did before, and the message only showed up in S4B and I have nothing in Teams. Seems like a fairly huge bug to me. Please note this was a one to one chat.
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
We really need to be able to have MS Teams provide us reminders for calendar appointments that would be listed in the MS Teams calendar basically the same thing as Outlook calendar. If I don't get reminders for meetings the meetings bit is nearly useless to me since that means I still need Outlook open to get these notifications which is double work and pointless.
Yes, this is very much not intuitive.
The team is working thru the planning for this feature and hopes to start implementing soon. I will let you know as I get more updates. Thanks!Ray shared this idea ·
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
This is in internal testing. I don’t have exact timing for you, but wanted to let you know it is coming!
The feature team is still considering this item. No confirmation yet.
I’m switching the status to Partially Done.
The request for a Preview Team is still in the works. No new information is available at this time.
Team Discoverability is still being worked upon, no details are available at this time. If you support this idea please navigate over to the main topic and vote for it! https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/
Change Prompt: this has been completed
This request is still on the backlog.
This feature is still being reviewed by the feature team. No decision has been made yet. I’ll keep you posted.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
Adding any emoji as a reaction remains under review.
I am marking this as partially done to let you know a new reactions bar with Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Angry has begun rolling out to all users.
