Don't Close Call when Teams window Closed
This happens to me about 5 times a day. Literally. I'm chatting to someone and they close the window to find another one and the call ends.
In Skype, closing the Window doesn't end the call.
On iOS, closing the Window doesn't end the call.
Why does it end the call on Windows?
Thank you for your feedback! We have implemented this functionality as requested. You will now be asked “Are you sure you want to leave” when closing Teams during a call,

Annoying as **** to drop off the same call 4x in one session. Fix this please.

Extremely annoying issue. Please fix this so we can stop looking like buffoons when we are trying to sell Teams as a communication tool to our customers. Thanks.

I confirm this.
MS Teams has the checkbox "On close, keep the application running" in the settings. If this checkbox is off, breaking the call and breaking everything else when user clicks "x" would be reasonable behavior. But if this checkbox is on (which is the default), clicking "x" should just minimize application to the system tray (without breaking the call or anything else).
At least, if somebody really needs the current behavior (on clicking "x" don't close the application but break the call), then there should be still a separate option for a normal behavior (on clicking "x" just minimize application to tray without breaking the calls).

Just stumbled over this and couldn't believe that this is real. How can something like this happen? So please just even give us a close dialog to confirm the closing :)

x 3 - happens to me several times a day. Specifically, Skype for Business provides a warning dialog box that closing a conversation window will end the call to eliminate accidental hang-ups. I get the need to leave a foreground window for an active call (otherwise you won't know whether your mic is open) but please simply add an active call warning dialog like SfB to fix this problem.

I get disconnected so many times due to this. Clicking the X button should just minimize the application to the taskbar like it does in all other sections of the application
I'd call that a bug since MAC OS does not shut down an application when a window is closed.
When on a call, closing the TEAMS window will end the call. (clicking on the red dot or issuing "command+W").
When the window is closed or hidden, controls for the call could be placed in a right click on the application icon in the dock instead of a floating tab that will end up where it doesn'T belong in the screen.

There are many times I am in a meeting, and I just want to hide the window so I can get to something else and I click the X, and in doing so, I am kicked out of my meeting.
