    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.

    if i was overly harsh, i'm sorry, but i do see it that way. being a linux user in a professional context i'd love to see those two very different systems working well together. linux and windows users have somewhat very similar ideas of what they want to do with their systems - especially in terms of customizability, hackability and freedom of choice. but what i can see is that anytime windows is offering new technologies they try to do the same as apple: lock the other users out. Oh and btw regarding the office joke. MS provides office for Linux. It's called office365 and it provides all i need to work together with other people on all platforms. So why not do the same with teams? :)

    Ridiculous comment. Not sure which world you come from, but a 2 % Market Share overall is not nothing. Plus, in some user groups, Linux has a market share very close to macOS and Windows:

    "According to a StackOverflow survey, 26.2 percent of developers use Apple's Mac operating system, while distributions based on the open-source kernel are not that far behind, having a combined 21.7 percent usage share.

    This may come as a bit of a shock, but, yes, OS X and Linux are nearly as popular as Windows among developers. In fact, according to StackOverflow, "If OS adoption rates hold steady, by next year's survey fewer than 50 percent of developers may be using Windows" -- and, obviously, OS X and Linux will come out even more popular in the process."

    Microsoft could just fix the web client and make it compatible to all operating systems. Others succeed in doing that as well. Your comment is a great example of the destructive and protectionist attitude that microsoft had here and that raises comments like the 814 before yours.

    very disappointing! You could just improve the web version of teams, would have the same effect. How come skype (free) supports everything in linux while teams (paid) seems to lock features away from linux users? How come free tools such as or hangouts support camera and screen sharing while teams does not even support showing other people's cameras!? We work in big distributed teams we need stable and reliant software to communicate - cross-platform. There were also instabilities on teams on Mac in the pastg few weeks. I will try to move back to skype or hangouts: Saving money by having a working software sounds like quite a plan...
