Blynclight for Microsoft Teams
Expose user presence in Microsoft Teams through an API so that the Embrava Blynclight can subscribe to the current users status and display this status on the Blynclight.
The team is working on the API, and we will post as we have more information.
In the meantime, for Embrava, please note they have announced presence support for TeamsOnly mode with their version 5.2.16.

Any updates on this? Read somewhere, this was expected in 2nd half of current year.
+1 For this functionality.
Any news here? Still waiting.....

Really interested in seeing if there is an update here? This is a constant request from Teams customers.
Will this same API enable the hard phone suppliers (Audiocodes, Poly, Yealink, ...) to get the Teams status to there phones and adjust the led status ?
We want to integrate the Status from Teams in our Intranet Phonebook.
Is there a Roadmap for the Precence API?
Any updates on the Presence API.. it has been way to long..
Any news on this? It has been a while (almost four months).
Need Presence Api for Windows/Mac/Linux/Web ........
Any update on adding Teams presence to the graphs api?
Hi, Are there any updates on the "presence" API eta? I am developing an app for my company/office that would need access to this info.
Also, it would be useful to know if I can access an API for meeting room availability within Outlook Calendar specifically for live info to know about "currently" vacant meeting rooms from the selection... Unless I am missing something, the Outlook API reference documentation does not have any info about this.

Not sure why but Teams Only mode isn't working for my Blynclight. It worked for 1/2 a day and never again. :( Looking forward to the API
Do we have any updates on when these APIs will be released? We are using Kuando BusyLights and although they have released software for Teams presence which works great, they need the calling/notification APIs so that the BusyLight rings when a call comes in. This is the only thing that is preventing us from moving from Skype for Business to Teams!

+1 for this. Any update ... we're well into H2 2019 now :)

There are specific instructions for installing via Teams. I made a batch file with these installation parameters and then ran it as an admin with command prompt. If it works, your interface should look like the attached image. I believe that is what is meant by TeamsOnly mode on the website.
msiexec /i EmbravaConnect.msi /qn Connections=TEAMS ConnectionsSelected=TEAMS SilentConnectionSettings=Yes StartApp=Yes

Just upgraded to 5.2.16 and I'm running in TeamsOnly mode. No sign of MS Teams support in this latest version, though it is listed now in the list of updates on the Embrava site.
We are also looking for the status API to be exposed.
We are currently using SfB API to publish presence. We have a provider that offers a webservice giving us mobile phone presence/status. This presence we publish as 'Busy - Mobile' on linked PSTN users in SfB.
This gives the user the possibility to see if the user they are trying to communicate with is busy on the cell phone before interacting/calling - and assists the operator to tell if the user is busy before transfer of an incoming call (Enterprise voice).
The API for publishing presence from an agent to multiple users are not available in Teams, thus preventing us from moving full cloud, and use teams to replace current SfB with enterprise voice.
Please add option allow a service to publish presence on behalf of users. The current application uses UCMA. It simply gets status from provider with mobile number and status. This number is used to lookup the user in AD, and then publish the presence using UCMA to the found user.
It is currently publishing weather the user is online or not, so it is publishing both user and device status.
If you wish, I can send you any info - including source.
