I have MS Teams desktop app installed on my system. When ever I receive a MS teams meeting request, the meeting URL always launch in web browser and asks to "open via desktop app" 'or' use Web instead.

Is there a way to launch Teams meeting in desktop app automatically when I already have desktop app installed ??

Hi,

 

I guess it is when you click on the join URL in Outlook, then it will open in your web browser first. If you instead open the scheduled meeting inside the Teams client you will be join the meeting directly without opening your web browser first. There is currently no way to "fix" this.

Thanks  for your response!

Yeah, its behaving like this. But, I wanted to launch desktop app directly when clicking on the meeting link from mail.

@PankajHuriaI have been hunting the solution for this as well, as this is very bad user experience. But do you have the same behaviour (at least with Chrome) that when you click the link it opens the browser like you described, but if you wait a moment it is also opening the Teams client where you need to push [Join Now]?

 

On the launcher.html there is a part of the script which in my mind is starting the launcherLite.js and also jsll-4.js. Those two sisters should start the Teams client.

 

Also on bottom there is also link which you could click to get into desktop app.

 

Previously with the Skype there was equal behaviour, but it was much better as that closed the browser tab after the Skype was launched.

@Petri X  Thanks for your reply. I could not find the js part (or maybe I am not much aware of js) which does this magic of launching desktop app with the meeting url.  my bad :(

@DouglasWelsby 

This is a bit different case. This helps when your edge is asking about switching application. But the issue what puzzle me is the "Experience the best of Teams meetings with the desktop app" web page when clicking "join meeting".

Hello PankajHuria,
Please make sure that Microsoft Teams status is active in your Microsoft Outlook's COM addins table.

Should you need any further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me.

@Ogunts4u what about if using in Chrome? i dont see that as an option. 

 

 

also, the  "Uncheck the box labeled, “Always ask before opening this type of address” solution" is not an option in Chrome either. 

 

 

this is a very annoying behavior that is impeding adoption in my organization.....

HI, 

Adding "msteams:" in begining of the link will force open MS Teams app and then the link.

However, it won't work for people without MS Teams app on PC.

It is based on @karoool 's answer as well as this answer at https://superuser.com/a/1404213/358619.

 

First, create a text file with the .url extension.  Place the following in it:

Now, your ms teams link looks something like:

https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3A19dac83...really long address.

 

Change that `https:` in the beginning to `msteams:`

 

Save and then double click on that file.  It should bring you directly to teams.  As @karool stated, you must have MS Teams installed or your user would be confused.

@PankajHuria Ironically the auto launch feature thru Chrome is working for me but i cant figure out why. Doesnt seem to work for anyone else in my org. Did you ever find a solution for this?

As per my research, for the very first time it asks to open in browser 'or' desktop app.
If the user selects to open in desktop app and checkbox is checked "Don't ask me again", It does an entry to registry settings for the user and always opens in desktop app. Hope it helps!

@PankajHuria Thanks fro the reply. We aren't seeing that option for 'Dont ask me again' on any browser. Will check pop up settings.

@Linus Cansby, We are experiencing similar behavior, any work around?

@PankajHuria  If you have MS teams addin installed within outlook then there is a option on the tool bar that needs to be selected "join teams meeting"

@DevonM Interestingly, the auto-launch through Chrome used to work for me until I just recently migrated my domain profile to a local profile.  That wiped out some of my settings, including some browser-related settings.  Now, when I click on the Join Microsoft Teams Meeting link in the body of a meeting invitation, it pops up the web page and I have to click a button in a pop-up to join the meeting.  I'm not sure what I lost that I used to have, but I want it back! :)

 

I've also found that if I click the Join Teams Meeting button in the ribbon (MS Teams Add-in for Outlook), it launches the Teams desktop app directly and goes to the meeting login.  But if I click the Join Online button on the calendar reminder pop-up, it exhibits the same behavior as clicking the link in the body of the message and I have to click the pop-up to launch Teams and then manually close the browser window.

@jdflex, Thanks for spelling that out! I was always clicking the "Join Online" in the Meeting reminder popup (because it's so convenient), but if I use the buttons in outlook, it skips the annoying browser step. You can also Right-click on the meeting in Outlook's calendar and click on Join Teams Meeting which skips the browser, too.

@robertlugg the perfect solution... unless you're trying to link from the text webpart in SharePoint, where msteams: is not a supported URL.

Have you found a way to avoid the the automatic launch of the "For the best meeting experience, use the Teams app or join in Microsoft Edge" Website when clicking a teams Meeting Invite in Outlook?

 

Thx.
