Microsoft Teams Voice over IP (VOIP) enabled users will now see the Calls Button

Microsoft Teams has a number of Features/Side bar buttons that are shown or hidden depending on the features a user has enabled.

By default you have

  • Activity
  • Chat
  • Meetings
  • Files

Microsoft sometimes calls these “apps”.

By default a Teams user can make VoIP calls, they are made via chat, the calling button is top right

However, now VoIP enabled Teams users will see the Calls button:

Presumably without the dial pad.

The calls app was previously removed for VoIP users in January as they were seeing clickable PSTN numbers and trying to dial them.  I also would assume this is now fixed.
