This sounds as if people actually have the native app running on Linux? I simply get a window announcing that Microsoft is still working on it. Where did the teams-insiders package come from? Thanks for any leads!

You can download the package here https://teams.microsoft.com/download, double click and follow the package manager instructions.

The version that's downloadable from https://teams.microsoft.com/download as of (2019-12-13 @ 17:00PST) appears to still be the older Electron (web-app) based version that was available via a SNAP for the last few months. There is no video or desktop sharing, and the "call" button in Chat pops up the:
Try a different browser
This feature isn't available yet for your browser. Try the web app with Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome, or switch to the desktop app.

warning message (at least on the Kubuntu-18.04.3 LTS system I tried.) It doesn't look like this is an updated package at this point.

Cheers, [AER]

Installation can be executed from GUI or from terminal. When installation from GUI fails, it is a good idea to attempt the same action from the terminal where more verbose errors can be issued and more details obtained to unblock the installation.

Debian based distributions (.deb)

Install using apt:

 sudo apt install ./teams-insiders_1.2.00.26154_amd64.deb

RPM based distributions (.rpm)

Option 1 - Using rpm:

 sudo rpm -i ./teams-insiders-1.2.00.26154-1.x86_64.rpm

Option 2 - Using yum (Recommended):

 sudo yum install ./teams-insiders-1.2.00.26154-1.x86_64.rpm

Dependencies issues can be similar to dpkg, rpm will try to install the package, but can complain about unmet dependencies, alternative is to use yum which will try to resolve the dependencies automatically.

I'm trying to install the Debian package but am not successful:

~/Downloads$ sudo apt install ./teams_1.2.00.32451_amd64.deb
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Invalid archive signature
E: Internal error, could not locate member control.tar.{zstlz4gzxzbz2lzma}
E: Could not read meta data from /home/username/Downloads/teams_1.2.00.32451_amd64.deb
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Do you have any suggestions?

@DavidSnyderman-8986 is it possible that during downloading your network had a short outage and file was not downloaded correctly? Could you please try to download and install again?

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

@json-3713 do you perhaps have RHEL 7? If so, then it's the same issue as CentOs 7, discussed here https://docs.microsoft.com/answers/questions/3012/centos7-support.html

We are currently working on this and we'll post an update as soon as we are done.
