Installing Microsoft Teams on Ubuntu/Pop Os Linux

First lets add the repository key for the official release of Microsoft Teams for Linux

curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add -

And lets add the repository

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/ms-teams stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teams.list'

Update and install teams

sudo apt install teams

Now you can login and use Microsoft teams!

However, you may encounter audio issues such as but not limited to:

  • No audio heard from call
  • Microphone cannot be heard in a call
  • Incorrect audio device is being used

These things can happen because for what ever reason Microsoft Teams for Linux is very bad at picking audio devices.

For this reason, I recommend installing PulseAudio Volume Control

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

Then you can use the PulseAudio Volume Control to disable outputs and inputs you are not currently using, that way, teams can’t choose the wrong one.
