1. Install Snapd tool
To install MS teams, we first need to have Snapd installed on our system. Snaps are applications that are packaged with their dependencies to run on all Linux distros just from a single build. Snapd is a tool that is used to install these applications. Let's install Snapd with the help of the following command:

Now, we will enable classic snap support. It can be done by creating a symbolic link between /var/lib/snapd/snap and /snap with the below command:
$ sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
4. Install MS Teams on the system
We have finally reached the last and main step. Here we will install the application. To install Microsoft Teams, run this command:
