New MS Teams (2023) and rename existing Teams to Teams Classic

Microsoft is rolling out a new Teams client engine and renaming the existing one as Teams Classic. There are 'bulk' rollout methods, but would be great to have this in PMPC. Please see reference linked from this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcYWqCMQ1no

Recommend the new Teams client simply be Microsoft Teams (as that is what it will be going forward) and the old one be renamed to Teams Classic Machine-wide Installer in order to differentiate them and use Microsoft's terminalogy to reference them.

    @Admins - Please provide a status update regarding MSIX support since there was reference in the comments below that you were targeting March and it is May now. Teams Classic goes EOS June 30. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-classic-client-end-of-availability.

    Is MSIX support required for you to rename the old Teams as "Classic"?

    Is MSIX support required for New Teams since Microsoft provides the TeamsBootStrapper.EXE that you can run with -p -o plus the path/filename to the MSIX.

    This can be installed without the MSIX package, I am currently using the teamsbootstrapper.exe to doploy out and then have a powershell script to do the install plus removal of old machine wide installer.

    Simplest way to install: teamsbootstrapper.exe -p

    Please make this happen as new Teams is about to become the default at the end of the month and be required by the end of Summer.

    Hello, I wanted to provide an update on this.

    New Teams is an MSIX based application. Today, the Patch My PC catalog is limited to EXE, MSI, and MSP based installers due to backend limitations. We are currently working building a new backend with extended features including MSIX application support, however, we do not expect this work to be completed by March, 31st 2024. As soon as the backend work for supporting MSIX apps is complete, New Teams will be one of the first MSIX based apps we ship.

    Any updates on whether PMPC will be providing the new version of Teams? All Teams Classic clients will be upgraded to the new Teams on March 31st and it would be nice to get started earlier. I know that the new Teams uses a MSIX installer and was curious if PMPC would even do this.

    A base install would be nice to use during bulk rollout and during OSD. The update process is done using Store.
    The old MS Teams is also in PmPC and this also does an autoupdate.

    The new Teams desktop client is an MSIX/MSStore application. Once installed, it should be automatically updated by the Microsoft Store. It's probably not a good candidate for an update in Patch My PC.

    It could be made as a base installer only, though. But detecting its installation status might be tricky -- I don't know if the Patch My PC team has a habit of detecting provisioned Appx packages in their detection method.
