Support device call controls
Support call controls for popular 3rd party headsets (handup, mute) like Plantronics 740-M or Jabra.
Hi, same issue with Jabra Evolve 75e - physical mute button does not change anything in MS Teams calls. On skype for business it works perfectly

Can't use my Plantronics Headset because of this annoying Dialtone in the background?!
C'mon, where are we, 1991 ?
User Issues with Jabra Pro 9450- Mute and unmute controls with MS TEAMs, if you unmute/mute using computer controls with MS TEAMS, the headset will not respond if you choose to mute/unmute from the headset.
Using Teams successfully w/ my Plantronics Savi W445-M and Plantronics Hub. Voyager 5200 UC works as well.
I use a Sennheiser Office Runner headset for PC-based calls (not phone lines) and can't get it to work w/ Teams without hearing a background dialtone. Phone isn't connected to a land line so I don't know why I'm getting a dial tone at all. Would be nice if you could make Teams work correctly with my $300+ headset.

this is why i hate MS products. how much longer till you provide at least an acknowledgement?
Someone please fix this!!! i can't believe we are still having this issue after so many reports of this 'bug' Teams and Skype are incompatible with SAVI series Plantronics headsets!
Also, if i'm on a Teams call... and launch skype for business... it ends the Teams call... very embarrassing.
I second Ben Raubenolt: Please fix this and allow it to work while Skype for Business is also running.
People from my company (have to) work with both Skype for Business and Teams, using Jabra Speak's. There is only one call active at a time, so the 'hang-up' button should end the active call.
the 'solution' to close Skype for Business everytime a call is done via Teams sounds like a temporary workaround, but this issue is reported and known for over 10 months now.

It seems to work for me with Jabra VOICE 550a MS, however I need to make sure skype is closed prior to launching teams and have to keep Skype closed. Since the company shifted from Skype for Business to Teams, I do not mind having Skype closed. For some it might be a problem as they need to use both at once still.

I have the same issue with Jabra controls. Works fine with Skype for Business but doesn't work with MS Teams.

Any update for this feature? This is crazy that it's not supported yet.
I'm using a Plantronics Voyager Focus UC wireless headset with MS Teams. When I connect to a meeting and try to mute my microphone from the Teams menu my headset mic does not mute. This only happens with teams if I use it with other software such as Skype it works fine.
Dear colleagues, if users using Skype f.B. and Teams on their computers. The API can only handle one applications (Skype) that the controller of the headset (mute, hangup, etc. )is working. If I´m closing the lync.exe in the taskmgr Teams can work with these controller, but for 1000´s of users this is not a possible way to handle that issue, can you please have a look if you can change the API that both applications working with different ways?

I'm using a Corsair Void Pro Wireless with Teams. I can mute by raising the mic out of the way but when I lower the mic back into position I have to click the unmute button in Teams. When I use it in Skype for Business, Skype doesn't mute or unmute when I move the mic but it works perfectly for me because my headset handles the mute. Can Teams either support both the mute and unmute features for this headset or give me an option to disable that so I can just let the headset itself handle this functionality.
This device was mentioned as Teams approved - Sennheiser SC 665 USB - https://products.office.com/en-us/microsoft-teams/across-devices/devices/category?devicetype=36&filterIds=28&page=1 but call controls not working either.

Yes, yes, yes.
I use both a Plantronics 5200 UC and a brand new Jabra wired headset. The control buttons neither work with Teams....
Headset controls on several different devices started working in Teams once I dropped S4B.
Sennheiser ear buds don't work either. I can hear people but they cannot hear me. Seems like the device only recognises teams as a Media service, not a call Service... Microphone is disabled.
