Ways to update Microsoft Teams

On Windows and Mac, the Teams app updates automatically, so you don’t have to do anything. However, if you are having issues or want to make sure you have the latest version, you can manually force the app to check for updates, as we’ll explain below.

If you are on Linux, your application will not update automatically. You will need to use your package manager to download and install the new updates for Teams.

On mobile devices like iPhone, iPad and Android, you can use the respective app store to update the app on your phone.
