Hi All

 

We have started to use teams in our establishment and I was wondering what the difference is between using Teams via a Web browser and installing a teams desktop/mobile application?

 

I have done the usual searches etc, however most of the info seems to be a few years old.

 

A feature comparison table would be helpful if there is a link?

 

Kind Regards

Hi @Lee_Thacker 

 

Here is the response from the other threads I could gather for you.

 

Limitation on Microsoft Teams 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams

 

Get Microsoft Teams Client

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/get-clients


Both the documents calls out most of the feature supported in Microsoft Teams.

 

With Regards,

Satish U

Best experience comes always with the Desktop App...additionally there are some features only available in the Desktop App such as Background Blur & Background pictures in meetings and vide-calls

@Satish2805 Here is a page with Teams features by platform I found that answered my questions.  Just click on the area you're interested in learning more about.
