Install Microsoft Teams as PWA on MacOS

We use Microsoft Teams for video calls and communication with our clients.

However, Teams uses a lot of resources on MacOs.

As a workaround, you can install Teams as a PWA (progressive web app). It feels like a native MacOS application, but runs Teams in a browser window.

Microsoft Edge

Mozilla has discontinued the installation of PWAs on desktops. You can still use the web application in the browser window, but you cannot create a new desktop app.


You can use background effects for your camera - including blur. But you cannot upload custom backgrounds.
