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.
