Teams meeting running in background

Wow so Microsoft teams meeting was still going for hours after a meeting apparently ending, despite not showing up in apps running list.. (You know when you press button, at bottom of phone to show what's running)

I only realised it was still running due to a notification 2 hours later

Does anyone know what's going on here?

Android phone
 
I use Teams regularly but it's a bit different for me - Linux. There's no Linux version of Teams so I access it by using Google Chrome instead. It seems to work very well and when the coordinator ends the meeting it does drop out.

Google Chrome is a bit of an issue though. Every time I open it it keeps asking for my root password - super user access. Google keep advertising it as a safe browser, but if that's so why does it keep trying to access areas of my computer that are quite frankly none of it's business?

I never give it my root password of course, I just keep hitting the Cancel button and after half a dozen tries it gives up and runs without the sort of invasive access it was asking for. I always hated Chrome anyway, because of the way it tries to break my security every time I open it I very strictly use it for Microsoft Teams and nothing else.

I see Google and Microsoft as one and the same in this regard. Shameless corporate disregard for privacy. As if it should only be a societal concern best left in the 20th century.

I do wonder if using a Chrome-based browser engine like "Brave" might yield different results. Or not. I occasionally use Brave, but won't go near Chrome per se.

Teams uses a Microsoft proprietary video codec and Microsoft will only allow a license for Chrome, no one else. You can open Teams meetings in Firefox but you'll only get audio, no video. Some people that attend our meetings do this, and some use the Teams app but turn their camera off anyway.
 
Or try "Brave"....theoretically a more secure option than Chrome.

Same browser engine, but with enhanced security Chrome doesn't like.
 
The private sector is much more scary, and when we allow them to have too much sway in our parliaments is when the trouble really starts.

Never more than before seeing Microsoft hyping their "AI" product to seduce shareholders and others.

At the apparent expense of their product Windows 11 and even more, anyone who chooses to use it. Weird to think that at the moment, the only that truly intrigues me about installing that OS is purely a matter of morbid curiosity and little else.

Still on the sidelines trying to determine if it's worth it in loading onto a removable drive.
