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.
And as long as there is no Linux client, can we please get an option to not show the "Launching Microsoft Teams" browser interstitial when we click a Teams link?
Well that or offer a proper Linux application. As it stands, the current behavior is ridiculous.
The ability to turn off emojis is still being worked upon.
Also, there is work to create a compact mode which will also help reduce white space… which in turn will impact some of the complaints are far as wasted space from the emojis as well, that have been voiced in the comments.
Stay tuned for more details.
Can I use tampermonkey to kill these things? Really unbelievable that a business communications tool has these and doesn't at the very least offer an option to turn them off. Did the focus group that OKd this use Teams for more than a week?
This feature request is still being reviewed by the feature team.
Same for the animated emoticons. Can we please have an option to kill these on the user prefs? This is a business communications tool, I don't need a thumbs-up emoji to flip a finger at me the whole day.

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.
@Steven J this is not integration. If you update the task in Outlook, nothing happens in Planner, and any action you do in Planner (except the one activity of assigning the task) does nothing in Outlook. For people who want *real* integration, look at the cronofy options. Unfortunately no Planner integration, but Trello and Evernote are supported.
Really important to me. I use Linux so I don't have the teams desktop client, so mobile is the only way to get notifications. But I'd rather not see them on my evenings or weekends.
