Hi

I used Microsoft Teams for Linux and I cannot join the meeting with this app. But, join via browser is working. Is it a bug?

Hi @dtantono115   the only bug report I found about not being able to use the app to join a meeting in Linux is this one: Bug Reports: Top (6796 ideas) – Microsoft Teams UserVoice

 

Anyone else have any ideas?

Hi, what Teams version are you running?
There seems to be an issue with 1.4.00.4855 as reported here:
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/update-1-4-00-4855-1-breaks-teams-for-linux/m...
Downgrading to 1.3.00.30857 made joining calls via links possible again in those cases.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi
The problem is I use the snap package and you know that snap emphasise full updated app and downgrading is impossible. What do you think?
Hi,
sorry, I do not have experience with snap packages, I used the official MS Debian repo.
Would it be an option for you to try any other packages?
I do consider the downgrading as a workaround only, not a solution.

Also, I have reported my issue as a bug here:
https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/908686-bug-reports/suggestions/42925827-linux-client-upd...
Not sure which place is the best to get something like this looked into, but let's see.

I understand and I cannot find that app version download link on MS website. Do you know it?
