Hello

Please i saw an online source that Microsoft is planning to drop the Linux App for Teams to Replace it as a Progressive Web App Instead.

Is anybody aware of this on how we can access the Progress Web App or when will it be implemented.

    For me the PWA is already available when I go into the browser to Teams and install it as an app, or is there somthing else coming?
    If not, it seams they just discontinue the linux client (and not replacing it with anything new), which I feel is a shame as I was actually hoping for more Linux packages for other Office suite elements like Outlook.
    On the other hand, releases of new functionality might be more frequent in a PWA.
