I'm writing autotests using MS Teams desktop client. Connecting by Selenium webdriver.
To use Webdriver, I need to know WebView version used in my local Teams client.
Is there a way to know that version from registry or some local files?
Maybe there is an updated online source to know WebView version by Teams version?
Currently, I'm running webdriver with whatever version, getting an error message with needed version, and then running again with the correct version.

    Hi @Vladislav Velichko According to the Microsoft support document, the new Teams client uses the Evergreen version of Microsoft Edge WebView2 to ensure Teams client is always up to date with the latest fixes and improvements available in Microsoft Edge and Chromium. If you want to check the WebView2 Runtime version, you can find it under Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features. For more details, you may refer to the article. Hope the above information is helpful for you!
