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.

Secondary ringer is missing in 1.2.00.24753 (64-bit)
I have version 1.2.00.24753 (64-bit), but no secondary ringer.
I am not able to upgrade past 1.2.00.22654. When is the new version released?
Microsoft did it! In the last version 1.2.00.24753 (64-Bit) the secondary ringer is now available.
Hi Rob, what version of Teams is the update in? Thanks for letting us know.

Secondary ringer feature is finally here thought: https://i.imgur.com/lS4966Q.png
can't wait for this to be released!
This is required functionality. Can't believe this big a ball got dropped. What good is a communication device if you keep missing calls? Get it together
This is a huge development flaw in teams. More or less everyone uses some kind of headphones in calls but takes them off while interacting with people IRL. Then suddenly they realize that there is a ton of missed calls because the frickin headphones were the only thing ringing.
How hard can it be to duplicate the functionality that is already in Skype / lync...
Can someone "Team" me when this is working please!...Hmmm doesnt have the same ring to it does it! :-D

I don't have sound coming through either the headset or speakers on a Surface Pro. Checked all sound settings in Windows 10 and Teams. When testing incoming calls, there is no ring when receiving a call.

I am missing calls because the ring in the headset is faint. Rings to a speaker would solve this problem. Skype for Business has that option. Teams should have it too.

this is fundamental to help us migrate from SforB to Teams. 250 users impacted in our organisation. everyone has headsets for privacy and continuously calling remote workers and customers
So much for full feature parity between SfB and Teams....

+1 for this.
One annoyance we've spotted is that with the screen lock policy we have in place calls are getting missed because someone might have turned away from their computer to chat to a colleague, their screen locks, and they don't see the incoming call. Incoming calls do ring wired / wireless headset and external speakers, but it would be better if the computer speaker could be selected to ring too (with a volume setting) and transfer audio to the headset / external upon answering.
This is similar to the other UserVoice suggestion at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/36641473-phone-ring#comments

Because Microsoft is eliminating Skype for Business next year and wanting Skype users to start using Teams instead, I am surprise Teams does not support a simple function like secondary audio device for notification.
Please add this as soon as possible.
Our employees work in an open space environment and are all using headset constantly connected to their work stations.
We will now probably will have to go back and use Skype for Business until this simple issue is resolved.
This feature is a must have.

Why is this still missing? MS wants us to move away from SfB, but without a second ringing device feature, Teams is useless as phone app.
without this I miss calls!!!
