Microsoft Teams supports Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome & Firefox but will there be expanded support for other browsers?

 

Safari support is due soon from what I gather but could Teams not block browsers it doesn't recognize and just offer the best experience it can with each browser? I'm thinking of ones like Vivaldi and Opera as examples, or is it just not realistic from a support perspective?

 

Thanks!

Cian, you raise a good point. It is a tricky decision on offering a great experience vs not offering one. We have an internal bar of where we would like our browser experience to be and until we hit an acceptable experience, it is unlikely that we will support it. We have rich experiences in the desktop apps and until the browsers you need are supported, I would encourage you to try them out.

Thanks for the clarification Sharvari.  I can imagine it's not an easy call but any progress in this regards I think would be welcome.

Lots of gripes from our Mac users that Safari still isn't supported. Most are pleased when I counter with "desktop app for Mac is great and has feature parity with Windows" but it's still a bitter pill for many.

 

Perhaps the language should change but it's clear that Safari isn't going to be supported "soon".

Is there a link to what is officially supported?

The official list of supported browsers is here - Get clients for Microsoft Teams.

I use a browser based on chromium and when I change the user agent string everything works fine. Would be glad if you would deliver that experience by default.

Opera: 

  1. Launch Developer Options (Ctrl + Shift + I)
  2. Triple-dot-menu > More Tools > Network ConditionsNetwork Conditions menuNetwork Conditions menu
  3. In the Network conditions pane at the bottom, uncheck Select automatically. In the dropdown that appears, choose Chrome -- Chrome OS. Change user agentChange user agent

  4. Close the Developers menu and navigate to https://teams.microsoft.com

Best of luck!

Isn't it an option for them to use Chrome on Mac? Chrome is supported....

Yes, Chrome is supported. And Firefox and IE and Edge. Which makes Safari not being there all the more perplexing.

 

I assume you are a Windows user. What would you think if Google came out with a new product that worked on all the browsers except IE/Edge? Would that be a bummer for you, or no big deal? And what if they said that IE/Edge support was "coming soon" and over a year later it still wasn't there?

 

Safari is the default browser on Mac. It's a big deal to some Mac users.

Is there any update on timing for Safari support. Thanks.

The challenge in telling Mac users to just use the Mac Teams app, until Safari is supported, is when they receive a Teams URL. The Mac Teams app doesn't appear to have a way to open a URL, so if they have access to multiple team sites with multiple channels, they can't figure out where the URL is directing them.

Safari is supported now

@Sharvari NerurkarThe desktop is not an option for Linux/otherOS users.
