    We are getting closer, and are still working thru some bugs, but hope to release this as part of a Public Preview pack in early 2021! (Windows 10 released with the December 2020 pack this week)

    You can learn more about the new Microsoft Teams Public Preview program here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreview, and Teams administrators can find documentation to manage which users will see the Public Preview option here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreviewAdmin

    @James Sweeney The reason you cannot enable the Developer Preview is probably because your (company) admin has disabled that option for you: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/resources/dev-preview/developer-preview-intro#enable-developer-preview. There is unfortunately not much that you can do about it...

    @Andres Olsson

    It appears in the menu on the top left (see screenshot). Make sure you're on the Developer Preview version of Microsoft Teams.

    Great news! After years of waiting and searching for workarounds, I finally managed to get native notifications on Microsoft Teams!

    Follow the following steps:
    - Switch to Developer preview: Profile picture => About => Developer preview (if not disabled by your company admin).
    - Wait for Teams to restart.
    - Install the latest version: Profile picture => Check for updates => Refresh.
    - Wait for Teams to restart, and verify it is running version 1.3.00.28778 (or higher).
    - Click seven times on the Teams icon in the Dock until a Development menu appears in the menu bar on the top left.
    - In the Development menu, set the following values to true within the Hooks menu: enableMacNativeNotification, enableNativeNotification.
    - Switch back to the normal version of Teams: Profile picture => About => uncheck Developer preview.
    - Wait for Teams to restart.
    - Quit (CMD + Q) and restart Microsoft Teams again manually
    - Go to Profile picture => Settings => Notifications and choose Mac under Notification style.
    - A prompt should appear to allow notifications for Microsoft Teams, click Allow.

    Enjoy!

    So Microsoft, still no update? Didn’t we wait long enough already? It’s not hard to pull the switch to enable this for ALL users

    It would be very nice if Microsoft could share any information about when this is going to roll out. 4+ years of waiting is apparently still not long enough...

    We're now halfway of the next milestone: didn't make it in the first half of the month August! Hoorah!

    It's Monday again, and guess what... I'm frustrated!

    Perhaps Microsoft wants us all to switch to Windows. Oh wait, their Windows client does not support native notifications as well. Too bad...

    I feel sorry for all Microsoft developers celebrating the oncoming weekend. Must be very depressing for them, knowing that next Monday their users will launch Microsoft Teams and being frustrated for the 100th Monday in a row by the lack of native notifications. What a **** of a job...

    One week since my last comment, no sign of any progress... Two years since my first comment, no sign of any progress... How many more comments do I need to place?

    We're halfway July now, and not even a single sign Microsoft is releasing this very soon... Unbelievable. Apple should block Microsoft Teams from installing on any Mac before native notifications are implemented. Put on some pressure!

    So, Microsoft... Are you on track of disappointing us again in the month July? New month, new opportunities of disappointing loyal customers.

    The great Microsoft Teams quiz:

    1. When will Microsoft Teams receive native macOS notifications?
    A) In 2 months.
    B) In 2 years.
    C) In 2 centuries.
    D) Never. Microsoft does not care about their customers.

    Another milestone: didn’t make it in the first half of 2020. Congratulations Microsoft 🎉!! Nice job, awesome!

    This is taking soooo long. I've been commenting on this issue for over a year now, and it's still not implemented. In the meantime I still have to be annoyed by:
    1. Teams notifications not showing while using another app in full-screen
    2. Teams notifications still incoming when Do Not Disturb is turned on
    3. Teams notifications overlapping and being invisible after native notifications
    4. Teams UI freezing for a second when a notification comes in

    Please stop this ridiculous and amateurish situation as soon as possible, such that I'm finally able to work properly!

    Amen.

    I think we have to wait until this gets the most upvoted user request to get this implemented... Microsoft does really care about their customers

    We're over one month in 2020 now, and Microsoft still does not seem to be able to implement such basic functionality, let alone communicate their progress (if at all...) with their loyal customers. Apparently Microsoft wants all their users to switch over to Slack, which I'm really considering at the moment. It really is a big shame!!

    We're over 2 weeks into 2020, and still no update from Microsoft. Do we really need to wait until 2021?

    I can't believe Microsoft didn't make it in 2019. Disappointment after disappointment. Where does it stop?

    Microsoft developers deserve no Christmas this year because they didn't make it in time to release this cr*p. Make it happen, now!

    Today I missed a very important notification due to the Teams notification not showing up while I was in full-screen mode. I cannot believe Microsoft ever implemented such an amateurish approach. They clearly do not use Macs themselves while they are developing. "It compiles, ship it".

    Every single day I check this page I end up being disappointed that there is another day without any response from Microsoft.

    Seems like Steve Ballmer is still in charge of the development of Microsoft Teams

    How many more comments do we have to post to get this implemented?

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    GastonM commented  · 

    I guess we have to wait until 2020 (or 2021?). Nice job Microsoft!

    This suggestion was posted exactly 3 years ago, and being worked on since 1,5 years. How could this take so extremely long?

    Thumbs down for Microsoft not being transparant about the progress on this. Notifications in Teams are currently totally useless as I miss a lot of updates due to notifications not showing whenever another application is in full-screen mode, not to mention their notifications ignore the Do not disturb feature of macOS, really embarrassing and annoying.

    I actually wonder what Microsoft was thinking when they actually put time and effort into developing their own inferior custom solution, even though there was a superior native solution already in place. It totally makes no sense!

    The engineering team is continuing to work on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients. We will first launch support for 1 work/school account and 1 personal account so users can enjoy Teams for work and personal side-by-side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still being worked on and will come at a later date.

    You can track status via the roadmap here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=68845.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for your continued feedback. As many people have pointed out, this is available on mobile today. Support for replying to a specific message is on the backlog for desktop. I’ll let you know when we have progress to share. Thanks.

    Do I really need to grab my mobile phone each time I want to reply to a specific message? Come on Microsoft... It is already available in the iOS and Android apps, how hard can it be to also implement this on desktop???
