And let's be honest, it's more like two and a half stars. Proxima is barely a star and barely bound to the system.

Microsoft retiring the Microsoft Teams Win 10 S app effective November 29, 2018

1 Share

In an interesting direction, Microsoft are “retiring” the Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 S (Preview) app in the Microsoft Store, effective November 29, 2018. This is the Progressive Web App/Hybrid Web App version of the Teams client. When this change is implemented, the Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 S (Preview) app will no longer be available to install and will no longer function if currently installed.

If you are using Windows 10 S or Windows 10 in “S mode” Microsoft now recommend using the web app instead of the desktop app (though the web app has a number of limitations compared to the desktop today).

This mainstream Microsoft Teams Windows desktop app, which is built on a open source platform called Electron. will continue to exist and be the primary windows client. Since the Surface Hub can’t run electron, I imagine that will get some kind of dedicated client or experience.

I wrote previously about the Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 S app and about electron and PWAs, as I thought with progressive web apps being widely promoted as the future of cross platform development, especially in Windows 10, this would eventually become the primary client, but that appears to not be the case.

Microsoft Teams On Linux, What’s the Story?

1 Share

Right now Microsoft Teams in not supported in Linux, even in a web browser. It will load in a web browser and appears functional, but without audio/video support.

This is on Ubuntu in Firefox:

Microsoft Teams on Linux

There is a request for a native Linux client on user voice with over 2,500 votes: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16911565-linux-client. As of the 30th January 2018 it was “on the backlog”.

The windows client is actually Electron, Tom Morgan explains the client architecture well here. There was hope from a lot of people that as the web experience on Windows and Mac full featured, the same would be possible on Linux at a minimum, or that there may be a native Linux client.

There are some unsupported community projects that have attempted to create a native Electron client. Note I have not tried any of these, and they are not supported by Microsoft in any way.

https://github.com/ivelkov/teams-for-linux

https://github.com/sportradar/ms-teams-linux

https://github.com/NightsPaladin/msteams-linux

Architecturally this is less effort than creating a Skype for Business client, so hopefully at some point this makes it to the top of the priority list.

Are you interested in a Linux client? I’d like to hear your thoughts

Tom
