Transfer active call between devices
Transfer an active call in Teams from my phone to my desktop and back. This for comming back at the office or leaving the office.
We are excited to announce this feature is now available for the public. To learn more, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/office/join-a-teams-meeting-on-a-second-device-c28e7407-183b-46ea-ab17-2212700e5f41.

This was shown several times during MSBuild 2020 sessions but It doesn't appear on my Android app.
I assume it is in Beta so any ETA when the rest of us get it.
This would enable us to argue we should get rid of our current VOIP system, please any ETA on this feature?
Bump - any news on progress please MS?
Please add capability to join ad-hoc call on desktop from mobile, and reverse. Allow two devices to be connected, or one device to disconnect, seamlessly so there is no disruption to call in progress. Thank you!

Knock Knock, who's there? Teams, are you there? Hello? Please make this happen! With scheduled meetings, it's not difficult to switch between each device, but with impromptu meetings, it's impossible. Hey, I'm going to hang up, can you please call me again? Really unprofessional. Please make this a top priority. I see you just implemented a "raise hand" function...this seems like a much lower priority than the call transfer issue.

that would be really a great feature. Also if e.g. my computer's wiFi get's lost I could transfer to my mobile (and use LTE) instead.
A crucial aspect of the UC platform that is missing and desperately needed. An emphasis on completing this feature would be greatly appreciated.
Sounds like this is a very popular request since 3 years ago, and a feature present in **EVERY OTHER** major platform except Teams... c'mon, Microsoft.... CATCH UP PLEASE!!!
This would be very helpful ... we had this on skype for business before. Don't understand why we don't have it in Teams??
This is an important feature that my teams and I would love! Please let the development team know that this upgrade would be much appreciated!

Agree. This is a feature that is critically needed. Especially during CV-19 work from home, the lack of this feature has been very irritating. Having to hang up and tell everyone I'll be right back to get it between devices is such an unprofessional look.

Transfer an active call in Teams from my phone to my desktop and back. How i can do this
This is needed, will have to keep using zoom for now
Any update on this? All other conference call services allow the switch between computer and mobile device easily and vice versa. We need to be able to move back and forth so we can take a call on the go if we have to leave the PC.
I would love to be able to answer a call on my phone when I'm away from my computer and then be able to move it to my computer when I sit back down.
Any status update on this feature? This is a pretty standard feature on RingCentral.
I'm deleting Teams off my phone so I can force my conference calls to my laptop only. Stupid that I have to do this and it's the only solution.
ridiculous and frustrating. Skype does this easily
Hi, I have similar problems as Teams calls always select my phone first instead of my laptop.
FYI, I am on MacOS.
Are we able to select by default which device to take the call?
