Change 'Accept Call' button color to green to match other familiar UI elements
When I receive an incoming call request, if I'm on autopilot sometimes my inclination is to click on the red 'decline call' button because that button has a different color than the other buttons--this makes it stand out as an option.
If you changed the color of the 'accept call' button to a medium green, this would make both 'accept' and 'decline' stand out from the rest of the interface and also help facilitate usability for those who are partially blind.
Doing this would align the most important call interaction buttons to the same color scheme that iOS/Android use and most people by now have internalized.
This of course does not help those who are red/green colorblind, o I would also suggest a settings option to toggle the accept/decline colors to something like a black/white color scheme for clarity.

We keep clicking on the red hang up because the call and the video are the same color. Make them visually different.

I do this all the time, it's a really stupid colour design. The hang up is the only button that stands out, it's not even really red, its a dark shade and I always click it. With the COVID 19 work at home I am getting loads of calls and keep hanging up.

Several members of our team very much do not like this about Teams. They have consistently hit the hang up button. I hope Microsoft either changes this, or gives us the option to change it.
I've discussed this with several members of my team and we've all instinctively clicked the red button because it's familiar. Purple to accept a call isn't intuitive.
There are 101 things that can go wrong when you're trying to connect to a call and the last thing you need is a UI quirk slowing you down.

I have instinctively clicked on the red button SO MANY TIMES as it's the more promiment of the options.

Green or at least more prominent than the hang up button.
Same issue here and it has more votes. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18825775-answering-button-blends-in-too-much
I like this idea, and would also suggest moving it out from the middle position.
I like how Teams is designed by space aliens with no exposure to other phones or phone systems. ;) We'll eventually get it to have what we consider standard business phone functionality.

Why this interface didn't go through a human factors specialist is beyond me. Surely this would have been corrected (answer=yes=green!) before roll-out! (I am not a human factors specialist, but I've known at least one and greatly respect what they do!)

This, 1000 times over
I have the same problem, half the time I have to call people back, because I wanted to accept the call but clicked on the decline button.
I cut people off all the time because I keep clicking the wrong button. The colours seem opposite to me it's really annoying.
