Hello!

Is ist possible to use browser extensions with native messaging in the new WebView2 based desktop Teams client?
This is possible when using Teams in the browser, e.g. Edge, Chrome or Firefox, but it would also be nice to be able to use the same technology in the desktop client.

As I know the WebView2 API itself now supports browser extensions, but does Teams expose it?

Thank you and regards,
Dominik

    @Hölzl, Dominik -
    The use of browser extensions with native messaging in the WebView2 control within the Teams desktop client is not supported.

    The Teams desktop client does not expose the WebView2 control for use with browser extensions.

    The WebView2 control is primarily intended for use in custom Windows applications to host web content, and its integration with browser extensions is not supported within the Teams platform.

    Thanks,
