Work is in progress to support more than four active people in video calls. We will keep you posted.
This is still being worked upon and making good progress! Stay tuned for additional updates.
The feature is also available in our tenant. Tested successfully on Chrome and Edge. Thanks for the implementation!
One suggestion though: When a notifications is received the browsers task bar icon should blink (currently not the case). Otherwise a user might miss a new message if he is not present when the notification was received.
We ended up creating an extension for Google Chrome that is based on this user script: https://github.com/Dellos7/ms-teams-notifications-tampermonkey
It doesn't do rich notifications but at least the user knows that there are a new notification that require attention. Get's us in a state where we can finally roll out Teams. Hope Microsoft gets this fixed soon though including rich notifications. Creating this extension took us roughly one day.
Currently the Teams app is not compatible with non-persistent-VDI environments, such as Citrix and RDS. There is already a feature request to fix that: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18882088-non-persistent-vdi
In that scenario using the web app is a great option but the lack of notifications makes it hard to get the backing of the users and thus the management. Also on Linux notifications would be a great enhancement.
The lack of this feature is currently preventing us from rolling out in a 1000 user environment.
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 sad news as the majority of our clients is Linux and we might need to reconsider Teams as collab solution.
I think this is a political decision as Linux clients will not generate revenue for Microsoft . One goal behind Office 365 / Microsoft 365 is to encourage the usage of Microsoft platforms including Windows. Yes, they do support macOS as well, but enterprises will in most cases go for the Windows platform due to cost and compatibility. Teams not being available on Linux adds to this compatibility theory.
Support for meetings on IE, Safari and Firefox browsers is being worked on and is internal testing. We will keep you posted as we progress. Thanks!
Hi folks, we are collecting feedback on this so we can determine prioritization and user need.
Please comment in the thread below about how this affects you, how you currently add members, and who you think would benefit from this in your organization.
If you set the TeamsUpgradePolicy to "TeamsOnly" for a specific user or for the whole tenant, PSTN calls will be received in Teams. But that also strips the Skype for Business client from any functionality except for joining SfB meetings. We need an additional TeamsUpgradePolicy with value "Islands" that receives PSTN calls in Teams and leaves full functionality to the SfB client (except for PSTN calling).
Business case: Many external parties still use SfB as their primary and only platform. For users who communicate with these parties we need full functionality in Skype for Business (initiate SfB calls, initiate chats, etc). Still we want these users to only use SfB when necessary. All other tasks should be facilitated in Teams (like receiving PSTN calls).
I found an undocumented solution to the issue. The URL format must be as follows to allow Seamless SSO:
Replace "tenant" with your own realm.

Screen share for Chrome is internal testing, and we are hoping to release it this quarter. We’ll keep you posted.
Currently the functionality "Desktop sharing" is only available in the app version of Teams but not in the web version. The button to share the screen is available but grayed out. When hovering over the button, it says "Desktop sharing isn't supported in your browser yet".
In scenarios where deploying the app is not favorable (e.g. VDI, Linux), screen sharing from within the web app would be highly useful.
Tested on Google Chrome Version 66.0.3359.139 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Agreed. Some platforms do not support the Desktop app as of now (e.g. VDI environments such as RDS or Citrix) and using the web app is the only option to deploy the software. The download banner causes confusion.
Perhaps you could implement an option in the admin panel to disable the advertisement of the Desktop (and mobile) app.
Good news, this feature has moved into the planning stages. I’ll keep you posted as we continue to move ahead in development.
I'd urge supporters of this feature request to also vote for this one, as they are almost mutual and the other request already has the state "Working on it".
This feature missing currently blocks our move from Skype for Business on-prem to Teams on our Ctrix VDI environment.
We are working on supporting more than 4 videos in a Teams meeting. We don’t have a date to share, but will update as we get closer to completion.
Kudos for this recommendation. I’d like to be able to switch to some sort of “Do not disturb” mode in non-business hours and weekends or even better, put in a schedule for that.
