@dtantono-6618,

Does this issue persist all the time? Or what changes do you do before happened?

Does anyone else have the same issue?

I am confused about your image. It seems not a common image.
I tested in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. My Teams client version is 1.3.00.30857 (64-bit). It worked properly as below.

Hi
Sharon
to sum up, I am just an outsider from the company that use the Microsoft Teams and that company give me the Teams link for a meeting. So, I suppose to join the teams meeting as a guest and I am not modifying anything within the app. Finally, I got the meeting worked via browser and this Linuxapp is broken. Any thoughts about this?

As Benny said, it recommends you install the official package.

Hi @dtantono-6618

based on the screenshot it looks like you didn't install the official linux client provided by Microsoft, but the none official provided by Julian Alarcon.

But even with the official client you won't have fun, because we have to deal with lack feature set and of course sound problems since the last update in November 2020 and there is still no sign of a bugfix let alone a feature release.

So, that means snap app is better (https://snapcraft.io/teams) isn't?

Yes, at least that's the official client provided by Microsoft.
