Actually, I also would be interested in a way to disable Microsoft Teams auto-update on our macs.
Basically, our users have standard level accounts which do not have privileges to install softwares (updates are pushed every week through the use of apple remote desktop). However, the users are continually bugged by a window requesting them to login as admin to allow the update of microsoft teams, which they cannot do (the window appear multiple times per day...)

Me as well. Client is running teams for the last month on an RDS deployment (hoping to move to VDI) and the latest teams update has caused the 40 user office to slow to a crawl as each user's teams session now updates individually.

It would be great to have a toggle for this - on Mac, the Teams client restarts itself to update and steals focus. Very irritating - just give me a notification in-app when an update is available so I can install it when I want to.

Till now I have not seen an option for that. If you really want this i suggest you create a Uservoice.
But be Aware Teams is like any app you have on your phone it updates after each sprint in a cycle of 1-4 weeks.

In our company we were able to block updates by disabling everyone access to:

After update i am facing issue with team getting error oh we cant connect you Thats why i dont want to update it please help if possible@Steven Collier

@brijrautela I doubt that is related to a problem in the client after the update. Can you connect to teams.microsoft.com in your web browser and sign in? Do you have any coworkers with the same problem? You could also try to connect from another network.

At the time of my original post I had a problem with the constant updates because the update would change my custom settings. For example, the Zoom function would not work because it was disabled on the "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\settings.json" file. Once I manually enabled the Zoom setting I was able to zoom using "CTRL +" or "CTRL Scroll Wheel". The Zoom function was eventually addressed by those updates I desperately tried to disabled.
If you're trying to stop updates you can try changing the following settings on the json file;
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\Update.exe --processStart "Teams.exe"

When blocking access to folder how will that affect clients in the long run? Teams will connect to
https://teams.microsoft.com/desktopclient/update/<currentteamsversion>/windows/x64?ring=general and then it will try do download the file but it can't due to file access rights, after a while your Teams client might be that old that it can't sign into Teams (even if I have not seen that yet even when trying with 6 months old clients).
During the ignite session BRK3138 they mentioned "Staged rollout" and the possiblity to use pilot groups that will be able to get the latest release and test out all functions used within the organisation, not sure how or when this is coming.

@Norman Puga you suggested to not use: One last thing, don't use the shortcut created by Teams installer as it points to an update executable.
Is there any other alternative to launch the teams app, as I looked into it 'Update.exe' is the source to launching the teams app.
I am facing this issue since a couple months now, every few hours 'Teams' tries to look for an update and auto launches itself, post auto lauch of 2-3 mins I get an error 'No internet, reconnect to continue working...'. I end up clearing all the files in Roaming folder 'i.e. C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\' and then launch the teams app again to work. This is very irritating.
I have zeroed down this issue to only occur on my official PC, not on web or any other PC/Virtual environment. Before resetting the windows software, I would like to check if there is any other work around that this community can help with.

I am also interested in how to disable updates to Teams on my laptop. I have an externally connected USB HD camera (USB PHY 2.0) that I used for meetings. The camera works great with the base installation of Teams. However, when the Teams updates are applied, the camera no longer shows up in Teams as a selectable device. I've tried everything to try and resolve the issue, with no luck. At this point the only option I see is to block the updates so I can continue to use the USB camera.

@Norman Puga I tried to set enableBlockSilentUpdate to true, but if you restart Teams the content of the settings.json is overwritten and enableBlockSilentUpdate returns to false.
I do NOT want to disable updates, I want only to be informed about updates and allow them manually, since I noticed that Teams does not works after an autoupdate until you get it focus.
