Uninstall the built-in Chat from Microsoft Teams in Windows 11 with Intune

Windows 11 comes with Chat from Microsoft Teams which is ‘a signature, lightweight experience brought right to the Taskbar to let Teams personal account users quickly start a video call or chat with friends and family.’The problem with this is that it is only available for Personal accounts and not for Work or School accounts. 

The new Teams experience on Windows 11 and Chat are intended for personal Microsoft accounts and will be available only to individuals using such accounts.

With this installed by default, and Teams for Work/School, you will have two versions of Microsoft Teams installed locally. This can be confusing to end users.
