Hey guys, thanks for the feedback – we hear you loud and clear. After talking this over with the Engineering team, I confirmed this will remain on the backlog and we are actively considering how to accelerate.
Tweet me if you have any questions! @skprufo
This is more than ridiculous... Audio and Video chat is already working in Chrome on Linux when changing the user agent to:
"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/64.0.3282.140 Safari/537.36 Edge/17.17134"
So at least allow linux users to use audio and video without hiding behind a Microsoft Edge sign. Simply add linux user-agents to the whitelist of working browser/OS combinations and add a BETA logo to it.
This concession won't devour any of your "narrow" dedicated resources.
For those already using wavebox, you could add MS Teams as a separate service and override the user agent in the account settings like:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/42.0.2311.135 Safari/537.36 Edge/19.10136
You're now able to use teams voice/video chat on linux ;)
Video chat works in Linux with Google Chrome and user agent switcher set to "Edge 13":
Successfully tried with two linux clients... Try it on your own
This feature item is still in the works. Unfortunately I don’t have any additional details to share. I will keep you posted as I hear new info from the feature team.
This suggestion is still planned. I don’t have further updates on timing, but will share as we have them. Thanks.
