Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, these are the platforms that most of the users to prefer to spend time on for their computing needs and these are platforms on which Microsoft’s collaboration tool called Microsoft Teams is available.
In order to reach out to more users, Microsoft might soon introduce Teams for Linux. As first spotted by Twitter user @unixterminal, a recent update to Microsoft Teams UserVoice page has confirmed that Microsoft is considering bringing the Teams to Linux users. Also, a Linux app repo has been created.
It looks like Microsoft is about to release @MicrosoftTeams for Linux. The UserVoice has been updated to "stay tuned" and a Linux apt repo has been created: https://t.co/byJ6y2vUXa #Linux cc @Daniel_Rubino @JoeRessington pic.twitter.com/7TSUbc56Ru

Microsoft Teams engineer, Alex said that Microsoft wants Teams to be available for everyone and that users should “stay tuned for information soon.” Another Teams Engineer said that “this will remain on the backlog and we are actively considering how to accelerate.”
These comments surely buttress the possibility of the arrival of Microsoft Teams on Linux.
