    Hurry up and fix this please, it would be nice to use a bluetooth speaker for my group meetings so everyone can hear.

    Works! I figured it out!
    I remembered that for Bluetooth, Android was requiring "location" permissions for several apps. Once enabled in the Android app my Bluetooth headphones are detected and working!!

    Instructions:
    - Navigate to "Teams" Android app in your launcher drawer
    - Long press
    - Drag/press to/the "information" icon (a circle with an "i" in it)
    - Navigate to "Permissions"
    - Enable "Location"

    How are you supposed to use a video conferencing tool without headphone support?!

    I am saying"headphone support" rather than "bluetooth" since many phones today ship without a headphone port making this the defacto method of using headphones!!

    Add one more to the chorus of people asking how a company as large as Microsoft possibly thought that it was ok to ship an enterprise conference app without bluetooth support. Because no one ever takes meetings from the car or anything...
    I'd been an evangelist for this in my department, because I found it infinitely better than Webex on the desktop. This, however, is a major issue, and I can't support us shifting to this product until it's fixed.

    Definitely still an issue. It switches to bluetooth, but the audio on the other end is garbled and unusable. Pixel 3, Plantronics PLT.

    Hello? Has there been a response on this issue? Not having BT in Teams is a major problem. Using my speaker is not an option.

  • Pavel Franc commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Frustrating indeed. My bluetooth headphones work with Skype, music player, phone calls... just not with Teams. Android 8, LG V30.

    Definitely need bluetooth support working on the Android App.. Don't even have speaker support...

    Mind boggling that this is an open item for over a year in a conferencing app.

  • Vincent Colombo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I had Bluetooth show up as an option in Teams once. Not sure why. I can't believe this isn't working.

  • Jeremy Gray commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Seems like this worked for a while but my nose headphones quit working a week or 2 ago

    Tried today on pixel 2. Does not see BT. Need this very much to be able to use in car or on the go
