8 months and still not here? This would be very nice.

It's important for us to transfer the call from a Teams desk phone to a computer, vice versa.
Being able to transfer calls back and forth seamlessly between the desktop app and phone app would be so helpful. Even for small things like I'd like get up from my computer and walk to the printer and back without the caller even noticing.

Still not an ETA.
A workaround is to ask via chat to the host and ask for a link to join from other device

Would add that transferring calls isn't the full solution. Joining from two devices at the same time is. For instance using phone (or a laptop) for speaker and microphone, while sharing screen from desktop. Possible to do in meetings by joining from both devices, but doesn't seem to be possible in a 1-to-1 call.
Typical situation: Get a call from a colleague, pick it up on the phone. During the conversation I need to share something on my desktop screen with my colleage.

Any ETA on this? There hasn't been an update from MSFT for a long time on this.
I can do this for Meetings by simply joining from the other device but desperately need this for active calls.
Will this feature include voice calls received using the Teams Phone system too?

PLEASE add this ASAP! - this is the main reason that I still use Zoom more than Teams. I am constantly on long video meetings. When I do not need to see my screen and I'm not actively participating, it's a wonderful benefit to be able to leave my desk and still hear the meeting. Being able to have this mobility helps combat "Zoom fatigue"-- essential to the long WFH hours. Please help!
Would love this feature!
Some convenient features i would like to see in future update:
1. Get Teams call even when we are on network call already (Just like whatsapp).
2. Option to select whether we want to share screen on mobile or PC.
3. Switch call from mobile to PC and vice-versa.
4. Proper synchronisation of status in mobile and PC.
I mean this app is good but these features included would make this best app.

any update on this feature?
will be a great feature...any update?
Would love this feature. A work around is to park the call on one device then answer/pick up the parked call from another device.

any update on a release date for this feature ?
This would be a very useful feature.
I think this awesome feature is being ignored. Wished they would move faster on this. Frustrating.
I don't see any response after Jan 2020 ... is there more on this?
