Remote participants will have the best experience in a Teams meeting using the Teams app on a computer or mobile device. However, some situations may prevent colleagues from attending online meetings via the Teams app (lack of high-speed internet, available computing device, etc.)
A Teams Audio Conference License is part of the Office 365 A3 license provisioned to current students, staff, and faculty. Any online meetings created by someone who has this license will automatically include a telephone number that can be called to join the audio portion of the meeting.
Using the Audio Conference license
- Create a Teams online meeting just as you’ve always done. When the meeting invitation is sent, your attendees will see a dial-in number included in the link to the meeting.
- Attendees who need to dial-in to the meeting can simply call the number associated with your meeting and then enter the Conference ID number, followed by the # symbol.
- When someone joins your meeting by phone, they will appear in the meeting participants window as their telephony phone number.
