How to Install YakChat for Microsoft Teams on MacOS

It’s quick and easy to install YakChat for Microsoft Teams on MacOS. Our handy step-by-step guide shows you how.

Instructions: YakChat for Microsoft Teams on MacOS

Important: Make sure that you download the YakChat installation file intact, otherwise the installation will fail.

Apple Mac users often have Safari as their default browser. Safari unpacks zip files by default, but the downloaded YakChat installation file must remain unzipped for successful installation into Microsoft Teams. 

So before downloading the YakChat installation file, uncheck the Open “safe” files after downloading feature in Safari (as described below), or use another browser, such as Chrome, to download the file without unpacking.

Step 1

Firstly, open Safari.

Then select Preferences from the Safari menu.

Step 2

On the General tab, uncheck the Open “safe” files after downloading feature (usually found at the bottom of the tab).

This is important because it prevents the .zip files from opening (unpacking) automatically.
