Be able to choose different device for ringing
When I don't have my headset on I cannot hear when somebody calls.
Should have an option to ring on a different device e.g. Skype 7.41.x. See attached.
We are happy to announce this feature is released to the public.

Thanks Bishop! That's exactly what I was looking for (and I think everyone else is too). Perhaps we just need to inform people how to find those settings: Right click the tile in the Start menu, and select "Settings" there.
It's not ringing my second ringer
This is a pretty basic feature that is missing - I am constantly missing calls because it doesn't ring through my speakers when the headset is plugged in. I have changed the settings for the secondary ringer to come through my speakers but it doesn't work.
This is important as we are moving from SFB to Teams.
I believe Microsoft teams has now added this as a secondary ringer. Is this what you are looking for? See attached screenshot.
Please allow this otherwise I am missing most calls
Please be sure to consider this for Macintosh users as well as Windows!
this is an obvious feature from Skype Business that is missing - ti makes you wonder if the developers actually ever use the product.....

It would be really great (would have been great on SfB) for the secondary ringer function to mute the secondary ringer once the call has been answered or disconnected. It's great that this feature has finally been rolled out but it still feels somewhat half baked.
Please make it so it mutes the secondary ringer once the active call has been answered.
According to this, it's rolled out, and I believe that is the case in the US. However, we have many clients who require this feature who are based in Canada, and we need an understanding of the timeline to rollout.
Oh actually, it looks like overnight last night the update must have rolled out.
Option appears only if developer preview is OFF for me.
Our company recently stopped using Skype as it will be replaced with Teams in 2021 or so. Not hearing incoming calls is a significant decrease of efficient communication. Hence this option that is available in Skype, but not in Teams is a critical enhancement IMO.
I've used my private email. The company I work for has around 2500 employees.
Nice to see this feature is now in my tenant! Thanks, dev team!

Some good news:
"Secondary ringer" is being rolled out:
I have received the update already and can confirm that it actually works :-)

Just wondering if this is visible only for the Enterprise Voice enabled users? At least I'm not EV enabled and I cannot see this setting on version: 1.2.00.24753

I soooo need this. I'm actually quite shocked that Microsoft hasn't implimented this from Day 1. I read that it's now available. But I can't find anywhere how to make it happen. Anyone help?
Would be very useful

oddly enough I have people with the exact same version, some have the option for secondary ringer, some do not. same hardware too. Wondering if anyone has an idea on what could cause that?
1.2.00.24753 64 bit installed on 9-17-2019. only delta I can think of is the Office license e3 vs e5 but what would that have to do with the desktop app settings for alternative speakers? the answer should be NOTHING

Essential in an office environment when headsets are not worn all the time.
