How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Please extend the Teams Mobile App to work with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

I'm often on the road and my company relies heavily on online meetings :-) So, we are starting to leverage Teams meetings more and more, so when I'm in my car I need an easy way to join meetings and maybe also read messages. While this is way easier now, than it was in SfB Mobile (thanks!) it would be awesome to have an Android Auto / Apple CarPlay Extension to have a somewhat easier and "nearly hands-free" user experience. This would make me much more productive, even if I'm traveling :-)

        I'd like to echo the sentiment that this would vastly improve my productivity if I could participate in Teams meetings via Android Auto.

        Very important feature. The lack of Android Auto support is the only cause why our workers are still using Telegram when they're on the road.

        This would be a great feature. This would simplify the lives of the "road warriors", and make our "mobile offices" more full featured. As long as Car Play/AA doesn't allow for screen sharing unless the car is in park, I think an expanded feature Teams using the LCD screen via CarPlay and AA would be great.

        Drive mode is okay but this would make it so you don't have to pick up and handle the phone while you are driving and allow you to use the steering wheel controls to manage the call.

        This would be great. The new drive mode looks useful for people who use a dash/windscreen mount, but an increasing number of cars now support CarPlay and AA, eliminating the need for a mount and mean the phone is usually hidden away somewhere

        I'm a consultant for an IT company and have regular calls when I'm on the road. Every monday morning I've got a teammeeting scheduled through Teams. Since switching to Android, my car doesn't pick the Teams meeting up as a call. Apple Carplay did this just fine! It might not have had a full Carplay app, but at least it picked up on my bluetooth or USB connection so I could use my carkit for the call.

        Please make the Teams app compatible with Android Auto / make the meetings be recognized as a call. ME and my colleagues would appreciate it!

        I’m a game producer and I take a lot of meeting calls over Skype on the commute between studios. I know this will eventually replace Skype and I’d love for this to work in CarPlay as right now I have to dangerously fumble my phone around to join a meeting when I can just tap to join through an app in CarPlay.

        @Warren, I don't think this request and the one you linked are the same. The linked suggestion is asking for drive mode features in teams. I personally want teams to integrate with the two most popular Auto apps rather than do their own thing.

        Important request to be serious about calling and chat. I want full integration with these features for Android Auto.

        Our company is going to migrate and I will miss this feature of Telegram. Add it to Teams so we can continue to be productive on the road!

        Good request!!! CarPlay is fantastic for iCloud messaging. It would be great to add teams to this list.

        Get ahead of the competition Microsoft and deploy MS Teams for Android Auto. There are at least 30 people I know would benefit from this.

        I'm really hoping this happens soon. My company moved from Skype to Teams, and since then, taking messages and meetings on the road has become much more difficult.

        This would be a great to have my messages come though Android Auto just like my SMS texts and my Facebook messenger. I am often traveling between locations.
