Linux to get Microsoft Teams– Microsoft’s Teams collaboration service is available for all major platforms, including Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. And if you’re on any other platform, there’s a web app that you can use. But as it came out, there might be an app in the works for Linux.
Linux to get Microsoft Teams- Teams for Linux
Hayden a Twitter user (via Windows Central), spotted a thread on the Microsoft Teams UserVoice page where Teams engineer Alex confirmed that Microsoft wants Teams to be everywhere and that some of its customers use Linux. He also said, “Say tuned for more information soon.”
You can try this:
$ sudo apt-key adv –keyserver https://t.co/wSQl0svQ9T –recv-keys EB3E94ADBE1229CF
$ sudo sh -c ‘echo “deb https://t.co/byJ6y2vUXa stable main” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teams.list’
$ sudo apt-get update
BUT there’s nothing in the repo yet.

This thread is originally from 2016, but Alex’s response is from July of this year. There’s another response from October of last year from Suphatra – who no longer works at Microsoft – also seemingly confirming that the company is working on a Linux version.
For this, an apt repo has been created as well, although, at this time, there’s nothing that’s actually in it.
As the UserVoice page says, Slack does have a Linux app, and Slack is the main competitor to Teams. It is easily understood that if that’s the main barrier for some of its users to migrate to Teams, Microsoft might create its own app for Linux.
