The package is available in the Arch User Repository (AUR) so you need to have an AUR helper such as yay or paru pre-installed on your distribution.
Simply, type the following commands in the terminal :

MS Teams is also available as a Snap and Flatpak package, so if you prefer features like sandboxing, you should use the Flatpak version of this application. You can look up the installation procedure of Flatpak on the official Flathub Website.
