Why Microsoft Teams App is not available on MSfB? As we all know Microsoft Teams (Work or School) is now available in Microsoft Store on Windows 10/11.

 

Microsoft Teams is available on Windows Package Manager Repository as well. However, I couldn't find the Teams application in the Private Store (https://businessstore.microsoft.com/) admin portal when I search for applications.

 

I don't know the answer/reason but I'm assuming this is the reason? -> the Microsoft Store for Business will be retiring in the first quarter of 2023. 

 

Microsoft Teams Search Query is returning https://businessstore.microsoft.com/en-us/store/search?q=Microsoft%20Teams%3F

Teams App Work or School is available on Microsoft Store though.

You can also install Microsoft Teams Work or School application from Windows Package Manager using Winget command-line tool. It's normal to have issues with Microsoft Teams Home and Work/School applications. There are some tips and tricks to fix Teams app issues.

That seems like a reasonable assumption - there are lots of places to download the app for desktop or mobile.
