Microsoft Teams retirement of DMG for macOS

Date: Aug 12, 2020



We will be retiring distribution of the macOS MS Teams client via DMG file starting on August 7th 2020 with DMG distribution being fully retired by October 6th 2020. Instead we recommend the utilization of Teams via our standard PKG file, which is where we will continue to invest.


When This Will Happen

August 7th in app notifications, October 6th redirect enforced


How This Will Affect Your Organization

You are receiving this message because our reporting indicates one or more users in your organization are potentially using this DMG approach. Starting on August 7th your users will receive an in app notice of the upcoming change via a dismissible banner with a link to a download of the PKG file. After October 6th, 2020, there will be a redirect in place for clients running Teams on DMG, where they will referred to a PKG download of the application.

Users will no longer be able to use versions of Teams running from the DMG, when this change is implemented.


What You Need To Do To Prepare

Instead of using DMG, we recommend moving to PKG as soon as possible.
