Hi all,

The New Teams application got removed from few devices in our environment without the user initiating the uninstall. What could have caused the Teams app to get removed/break? We noticed from the event viewer logs that the new Teams app regularly searches for updates. Moreover, we noticed that the cumulative updates got installed on these devices right before Teams got uninstalled. Could the monthly updates and Teams auto-updates cause the New teams app to break or get removed? Please let us know if there could be any other reasons for this.

Thank you.
