How does Microsoft Teams Calling work?

Make and receive voice & and video calls directly in Microsoft Teams. 

When setup in your Microsoft 365 instance, a new calls tab appears - and works just like any other phone.

You can also get Microsoft Teams devices (Phones, Conference Phones, Teams Meeting Rooms) to connect to your Microsoft Teams account for a more traditional phone system experience, or simply make calls from your laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone.

Keep your same phone numbers, and let your team unify their communications into one place!

What are the features of Microsoft Teams Phone Systems?

Everything you would expect from a modern phone system!

  • Keep your same phone numbers (Port)
  • Make and answer calls
  • Forward calls
  • Transfer calls
  • Voicemail (Emailed and summarised in teams)
  • Spam call filtering
  • Transfer between devices
  • Auto Attendant, Call Queues & Hunt Groups

Because it is powered by Microsoft Teams, you can also use teams enabled devices to make and receive calls (Desk Phones, Teams Displays, Teams Meeting Rooms, Headsets & Speakerphones).
