Am I the only one who has noticed that the Machine wide installer does not have feature parity with current internet version?   Examples:

1) No break out rooms

2) When joining a meeting you do not get the same prompts 

3) Several other nuances when in a meeting.

 

It's like they kept the interface from a year ago.   Is MS going to have feature parity between the two?

We use Machine-wide installer but then the updates take over and the users gets a current version in "C:\Users\USERID\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\current". We originally thought that per machine would keep updating, and tried to stop the per-user version from installing, but that was not the right understanding.

@zz_Admin-John Ford As per previous post, machine-wide just initiates an install per-user, then it updates as normal.

 

Perhaps you are referring to installing on some Citrix, Horizon or other shared computing device. This doesn't have the same feature set as a regular desktop, it's had to be optimised for the shared environment.
