Microsoft Teams for Mac is finally getting this highly-anticipated update

Native Apple Silicon support is finally coming to Microsoft Teams. Microsoft has stated that native support for the Mac platform is in the works, which may mean using Teams on a Mac will soon be much simpler.

The video conferencing service will soon be available as a Universal Binary Mac, which means it will work natively on both Intel and Apple Silicon based Mac machines, according to a post on the official Microsoft 365 roadmap.

In the past, Mac users had to utilize non-native versions of the Microsoft Teams program that operated on machines with M1 processors utilizing Apple’s Rosetta 2 translation technology, which resulted in a performance hit.

In an effort to increase the number of Teams users even more, Microsoft has been working on expanding the platform’s reach for some time.

Users may now run select Teams applications from within the firm’s email service Outlook and Office.com, the company recently said. This is the first time Teams applications have been made available outside of the platform.

Only a small number of Microsoft Teams apps will initially be accessible outside of the standard client; some will come directly from Microsoft (such as Power BI) and others will come from independent companies like Zoho and Mural. In the months to come, a number of Teams apps will move to other Microsoft venues as part of the company’s pledge to double down on the program.
