Microsoft Teams rolled out the macOS' native notification earlier this week. Here's how you can enable it.

In an old Microsoft Teams forum, one person shared his idea about the OS notifications for apps.

According to the commenter, Microsoft Teams should integrate the functionality of the notifications to macOS. He also mentioned the "Do Not Disturb" settings. 

After almost five years, someone from the Teams' engineering department saw his reply, and said that they have now allowed the integration of the notifications to the operating system.

Earlier this 2021, the said feature was rolled out in Windows 10.

Last week, the native notifications were also released only for those who have the macOS version: 10.15 or newer than that.

It seemed that Microsoft Teams has pleaded the desire of the commenter from the previous forum. Besides rolling out native notifications for the macOS app, the "Do Not Disturb" settings have also been divulged along with Notification center triaging and other features.

"We are thrilled to share that Teams now supports Mac OS notifications on Mac OS 10.15 and above. With the release of this feature, Teams honors OS notification features such as Do Not Disturb, Notification center triaging, and more," Microsoft said.
