MS Teams, short for Microsoft Teams, is a macOS application that lets users connect and work with other colleagues. Suitable for large organizations, as well as start-ups, the software lets office teams come together and work on different projects. The app consists of two channels - standard and private. Using either of the two channels, users can start chats, create events, hold meetings, and work.
While the private channel is focused on individual use, the standard one is available to all users in the team. That means all conversations, files, projects, and meetings in the standard channel are open to all users within the team. A point users should note here is that Microsoft Teams download lets users create multiple channels for the same team members.
As a collaboration and video conferencing software, Microsoft Teams is quite efficient. The free to download application for Mac lets users conduct video calls with up to 10,000 people in one go. In addition to this, it can help you record meetings, create transcripts, host virtual meets, and do much more.
Desktop clients can be downloaded and installed by end users directly from if they have the appropriate local permissions. Admin permissions aren't required to install the Teams client on Windows PCs but are required on Macs.
Teams on Windows provides downloadable MSI installers in 32-bit, 64-bit, and ARM64 architectures. The x86 architecture (32-bit vs. 64-bit) of Teams is agnostic to the architecture of Windows and Office that is installed. We recommend the 64-bit version of Teams on 64-bit systems.
The browser client ( ) is a full, functional client that can be used from a variety of browsers. The browser client supports Calling and Meetings by using webRTC, so there is no plug-in or download required to run Teams in a browser. The browser must be configured to allow third-party cookies.
The browser client performs browser version detection upon connecting to If an unsupported browser version is detected, it will block access to the browser interface and recommend that the user download the desktop client or mobile app.
Microsoft Teams allows users to create teams, channels, and conferences to chat with team members that are online. These options make it ideal for business or educational environments. The video conference feature of the app allows for communicating face to face with team members as well.
If you plan to use Microsoft Teams, we recommend you download the Teams desktop and/or mobile app. The app will give you full functionality, and allows you to constantly monitor Teams activity and receive notifications.

The Microsoft Volume Licensing Services (MVLS) is provided for select IT Technicians to manage EES product downloads and keys for their department. Access is provided to one IT Manager per department and those managers may save software downloads and distribute to other IT Admins in their department. IT Technicians with access are responsible for controlling downloads, being sure they are contract compliant, and logging and securing keys. This is important because any audit findings will be the responsibility of the department.
While Microsoft products are usually found more frequently on Windows devices, getting Microsoft Teams on your Mac isn't difficult. You have to go to the Teams download page, select Mac and the PKG file, and then follow the directions the installation wizard gives you. Installing Teams on your Mac will require admin credentials, so you will want to have those ready to go. Once installed, Teams will be ready to run, and you can reap all of its benefits.
Where does Teams save your downloaded files locally As of today, Teams downloads either single or multiple files to your default Windows operating system Downloads folder, which you can easily find in your computer File Explorer. Typically that is the Downloads folder, that is by default pinned in the File Explorer quick access.
Note: You are now able to have Teams prompt you for your preferred destination folder every time you download a file. You can set this also from Files >> Downloads section in the Microsoft Teams settings.
If you are using a computer, you can either download the Teams app, or use an internet browser. If you use a browser, Microsoft Edge is recommended, but Chrome is also compatible. No other browsers are supported.
As a cloud-based tool, Microsoft regularly makes improvements and adds features to Teams and related applications. Due to its dynamic nature and extensive capabilities, the best user support and answers to user questions are available from Microsoft, which has many Teams resources on the web. A good starting point is: -us/teams.
I've been getting a notification that Microsoft Teams v330874 is available on my Jamfcloud instance for the last couple weeks, but can only find v328778 on macadmins.software and Microsoft's website. Anyone else having this issue with patch management or have a reliable download source for the newest version
Same here, have been trying to get the latest for about a week, but kept downloading the older version. However tried the link Gary provided above and was able to download v330874. I will bookmark it for future use and just change the version accordingly.
@garybidwell is there a rule about getting to the link you provided (to download the latest version when Microsoft's website doesn't allow downloading of the latest version) I'm assuming the link you provided is only good for 1.3.00.30874, so when a newer version comes out it won't be valid. I tried going to -osx/ or and neither page loaded.
I've been finding recently that a new Team's release can show up randomly on our environment up to 2 weeks before its listed as a download under macadmin.software as a GA releaseAs we have no control over when our user get this push directly from Microsoft via the Teams automatic update, we take lead and use Jamf patch management to force the update to all users so they are all on the same version as soon as we know its released into the wild.
@garybidwell thanks for your response. We had been dealing with a support ticket with Microsoft Support regarding Teams, and they kept telling us we had to get the latest version of Teams in Jamf. We normally use AutoPKG with a Teams recipe, and when I ran that it didn't find any newer version that what was already there. I asked them if the \"newest\" version they recommended was some sort of an interim update (where it could only be obtained through autoupdate and wasn't available as a standalone PKG) and they said no and sent me a link to their public Teams download site. When I downloaded it and looked at the installer PKG with Suspicious PKG it was still the version that AutoPKG found. Eventually Microsoft linked to this Jamfnation post and said to download the latest version using your link, and later they grudgingly agreed that it's kind of an interim update and that downloading the publicly-available PKG and then relying on autoupdate to update it to the latest version would be fine.
I was asking about some sort of standard link for download to see if I could re-write the AutoPKG recipe, but understand what you're saying about the statics.team links not having any way to do that (since there's no way to discern the link until Microsoft announces the version)
Theres no reason why they cant do it this way, as I cant's speak highly enough of the \"Office\" or \"Edge\" teams at Microsoft. Their release are like clockwork and you never need to jump through hoops to get the lasted GA release of any of the Office applications.
@mani2care that would work, but you would have to constantly update the code/script whenever a new version came out (because that would only download 1.3.00.4460). Might be better to rely on AutoPKG which won't always download the latest version (since it's taking it from the default Teams site) but shortly after downloading it the app should update to the newest version. 1e1e36bf2d
