teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join links under Linux

Copper Contributor

I have teams running on my Linux box, and recently links to teams in the form https://teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join no longer give me the choice to use the app or run teams inside the browser. A choice appears briefly, but the selection to use the browser version happens before I can do anything.

Is there a way to let me make the choice? I'd rather run the app than the clunky version inside the browser. (same behavior whether I use Chrome or Firefox, btw)

The same link when using a browser on a Windows box let me chose app or browser.

@Sylvain_Korzennik Microsoft stopped supporting and updating the native Teams client for Linux last year, so it makes sense for meetings to now prefer to open in the browser. I imagine you'll continue to see a degradation of features.

 

Browser is now the only supported option on Linux, I guess there simply wasn't enough usage to make it worth keeping up to date.

@Steven Collier Thx - disappointing but not surprising.

I just found https://news.itsfoss.com/microsoft-linux-app-retire/, and indeed looks like as of Dec 2022, MS is dropping support for Teams under Linux.
