I think you missed from a different post where the package was created 
by a different 3rd-party, not google.  So how else would you expect the 
3rd-party package to satisfy the dependency?

The chrome packages are not built for CentOS or supported on such, it is 
coincidence that they happened to have worked in the past.  They will 
continue to work if the libstdc++ dependency is satisfied.

Better to just do:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/google/chrome/lib teams

...or if you have a desktop launcher that you use, edit the command and 
add this to the beginning:

env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/google/chrome/lib
