Microsoft Teams is officially coming to Linux. Microsoft is "actively working on" bringing Microsoft Teams to Linux according to an update to a UserVoice page. Just last month, the UserVoice page told everyone to stay tuned and that the idea would remain on the backlog.
Twitter user Christopher Scott pointed out the change on the UserVoice page. Scott works for Microsoft and focusses on Office 365 and Microsoft Teams.

Let's just say the uservoice page was updated a few days ago. :)
Microsoft Teams is clearly a focus of Microsoft's right now. It continues to expand in both feature set and availability and potentially passed Slack in terms of daily active users earlier this year. There is no timetable for Microsoft Teams to be released on Linux but the fact that a Microsoft employee who works on Microsoft Teams highlighted the UserVoice page is very promising.
Microsoft Teams allows you to collaborate with colleagues, upload files, send messages, and chat through video. It integrates with Office 365 and several other cloud services.
