I got my Mac last year for online classes. Our online classes were being conducted on Microsoft Teams, I knew that I could go to teams.com and take my classes, but it didn’t work when I tried. For the next 2-3 days, I continued taking my classes on my phone since I already had the Teams app installed.
Then I found out why it didn’t work, and how to make it work so that I could take my classes on my Mac.
So how can you use Microsoft Teams on a Mac? You can either install the Teams app itself or you can also use Chrome or Microsoft Edge to do so.

Step 1: Open Safari and go to this link, or simply search for ‘download chrome’ and go to the first link.
Step 2: Click on Download Chrome.
Step 3: Check the download progress in the right top corner.
Step 4: After it’s downloaded, click on the installer to launch it.
Step 5: Click and drag the Chrome icon to ‘Applications’
Step 6: Wait until the installation is complete.
Step 7: Now, open Chrome and go to teams.com.
Step 8: Click on Sign In.
