Call a Phone Number from Teams

Note: Your organization must be setup for external calling. Reach out to an account manager for more details as additional licensing is required 

To dial a number from Teams, go to Calls, click Dial a number, and then enter the number of the person you want to reach. This way you can contact anyone, even if they're outside your organization.

In the Calls area, you can also access favorite and suggested contacts, listen to your voicemail, and check your call history.
