Here in this article we will learn how to install Teams on RPM-based Linux operating systems like AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux, CentOS, RHEL, and Fedora.
What is Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams is designed to solve the challenges of working in large teams or with many external partners. With Teams, Microsoft offers a solution to significantly simplify communication, classification and planning in work groups. The tool provides elements such as chats, newsfeeds and groups for everyday company life and is part of the Microsoft Office 365 package. In addition to the various tools for managing documents and interacting with team members, it enables users to send files up to 15 GB in size, which you can open directly in Messenger without downloading beforehand and work with other users at the same time.
Microsoft Teams also supports functions such as online meetings, group chats, video and web conferences, and phone calls. It is also possible to use whiteboards with Microsoft Whiteboard or InVision’s FreeHand.
The Office 365 apps are integrated directly into teams. For example, you can edit your Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents simultaneously with your colleagues in real time and do not have to send them back and forth or transfer them via an additional medium.
