Did you know that Audio Conferencing is now available within MS Teams?

05 Oct 2022

University colleagues are now able to facilitate audio-only conference calls, with users that are dialling in outside of the Teams app.

Colleagues with the appropriate Microsoft licence now have the ability to host audio conferencing whilst running a Teams meeting. This allows those invited to a meeting to join by phone, without using the Teams app, dialling into a phone number provided within the meeting invitation. 

Colleagues will not need to do anything, the dialling-in information required will automatically be created when you set up a meeting in Outlook. 

To review if this new feature applies to you, simply look up the type of Microsoft licence that has been assigned to you. This is applicable to all those with a Microsoft 365 A5 for faculty licence.
