Enable forwarding of messages to text/SMS
For people who don't want the mobile app, but still would like mobile notifications, is there any way to set up Teams to forward messages to SMS by changing a status or another factor?

Even better - support RCS. Then you could use active cards between Teams and native Android smartphones on carriers that support it.
I have a use case for this: Fire chief and emergency team in my organization would like to implement but part of their process requires an SMS alert to all responders. Please consider enabling this capability it would be an instant success for us if we could do this. The team is anxious to trying Teams but notifications/SMS alerts are CRITICAL. Is this possible?

This concept does merit consideration. Some Teams/Office 365 users need a way to have messages forwarded by SMS, in the same way they have auto-forwarding from their work/school email auto forwarded to their personable email. It can also act as a gateway process to get them to adopt the Teams app for their smartphone.
