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.

Please implement it the same way as in Skype for Business:
- Secondary Ringer
- Disable Mute when a call arrives

Could the problem be that Teams is a Progressive Web App (PWA)? Do PWAs only have access to a single audio device at a time?

PLEASE ADD THIS SERIOUSLY
Very important feature. We need it.

YES!!!! I noticed this right near the beginning of our company transitioning to teams. MAJOR pain to not have the ability to send the "ringing" of the phone to external speakers. Please make this change as SOON as possible. This is basic functionality.
Yep, I'm on this bandwagon too. I'm missing calls. Why was this not rolled out in the first version? Early versions of Skype had this!

This needs to be resolved a.s.a.p. List of things that don't work as expected in Teams are:
- this secondary ringer issue
- Contact card - cannot click to call, and can only show one phone number in the card
- Delegates - cannot call call on behalf as a delegate unless go to chat area, and dialler is not available in chat area
- Hold music not available

This is huge (and, as of this comment, I am hoping it's one step away from being implemented since we gained the Devices options in Settings). At the most basic level, S4B had the ability to ring a secondary audio device.
For my purposes, I had it ring my desktop monitor as the monitor has terrible built in speakers. However, those speakers were perfect to use as the main "ringer" because they weren't being used for anything else. I had those the monitor speakers set to max volume and it allowed me to hear the incoming call no matter where I was throughout the office.
It's an extremely practical feature and should be added ASAP.
Show stopper for now. We have to cancel the project, as we are using the PSTN option of Skype for business
Microsoft is the only software development company in teh world that makes a telephony application that does not allow the software to ring your speakers. Seriously, I challenge you to find any other telephony app in the world that only allows you to choose a single device and Not ALSO allow you to ring a speaker so you know you have a call!
How in the world are you supposed to know a call is coming in if you have teams set to use a headset and are NOT looking directly at your computer?
This is just stupidity!! There is no excuse and trust me, If I was in charge of the software development cycle, someone would have lost their job over this!!!
I’m thoroughly disappointed this feature hasn’t been thought out. I’m unable to migrate to Teams for this exact reason, it’s the dealbreaker that has delayed roll out of such a potentially brilliant system. Please bring this feature to Teams and hurry in releasing the Calling APIs so delevopers of BusyLights can make their devices work with Teams
Jon Webster commented
Teams has NOT reached feature parity with S4B. This is a good example of a feature that makes migrating from skype to teams impractical at this time. Please implement this existing skype for business feature

what a pity... That's a Skype 7 feature which disappeared with Skype 8.
Welcome to the Microsoft world
