Microsoft Teams launches on Linux in public preview

Microsoft has officially announced the availability of the public preview of its Teams app for various Linux distributions, touting it as the "first Office app" for the platform.

If you want to download Microsoft Teams on Linux, 64-bit.deb and.rpm packages are available right here.

Microsoft Teams was already supported on some of the most popular desktop and mobile platforms, including Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android, and as of today it's also available on Linux. We are committed to supporting mixed environments across our cloud and productivity offerings, and with this announcement, we are pleased to extend the Teams experience to Linux users.

Microsoft Teams is a communication hub that allows people to collaborate on documents, video call, voice call, and chat in various rooms and channels. Earlier this year, a Microsoft engineer said that usage of Linux surpassed Windows on its own Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

Jordyn responded "no", and later, the polygraphist said, "You definitely passed and I believe you're being truthful on the test". People reports that it was part of a special " Ask Us Anything " episode of RTT .


According to Microsoft, all of Teams' features are available: nothing has been stripped out to make the software run on Linux. The company has not said whether other Office 365 apps will follow.

This latest move to offer Teams on Linux indicates that Microsoft has no intention of stopping that growth and is willing to work with competitors to do so. "I'm thrilled to see Microsoft's recognition of how companies and educational institutions alike are using Linux to transform their work culture". We are constantly improving based on community feedback, so please download and submit feedback based on your experience.

This Linux love-fest is nothing new for Microsoft under the leadership of Nadella: One of his first big proclamations as CEO was to say that "Microsoft loves Linux", and that it would support the operating system going forward.
