Hi guys,

 

I am new to teams and I just wanted to know if there are differences in Teams client and Teams Web-client. Differences keeping in mind both mobile app and desktop app. Are there any features which is available only on browser and not on app and vice-versa? 

 

Thank you in advance.

Regards,

Nithish

As far as I can see neither does the webapp.
I have webapp open in Edge and the desktop app open and only the desktop app allows me to switch between your own tenants and to one where you are a guest.
that to me is a big "stay away from the webapp" due to the nature of my work.
unless someone can correct me otherwise I guess :)

I can switch tenants in the web app - tested using Chrome and Edge on Windows 10, in a standard release and a targeted release tenant.

As far as I know, it has been possible in the web app for some time now - but happy to be corrected.

Ok, i'm testing on my MBP and I can't see a way to change the tenant on there either.
Is it really only available on the windows desktop app?

@Rob Ellis, Where?
In my desktop app I can see a drop down on the top n between the search bar and my profile picture. In the webapp and on my MBP desktopapp it's not there.

@kevjackson in my web app it's the same place as the desktop app:2019-11-13_09-08-08.png

Well, then i'm stumped.
I've just double-checked that i'm added as a guest on my works tenant, which I am and I received an email to my personal account saying as much, but that drop-down menu on my personal teams account is simply not there on w10 edge webapp or desktop app on MBP Mojave.
Weird.

if you want, PM me your email address, and I'll invite you to one of my Teams, so you can validate the functionality.

My thanks to you Rob, that has worked.
It now show on webapp and MBP desktop app, so all is good.

Thanks once again. :)
