Switch active call to Mobile phone
Our customer should have a function to switch an active call from the computer teams client to a mobile team client.
You answer a call at the PC/teamsclient and want to leave your desk and continue the call with your mobile phone/Teamsclient.
Normal call forwarding is not really useful in this case. It would be nice if there was something like a "Switch-Button".
Similarly, the option to access via phone before you even enter the meeting. (I.e. meeting invites come with a number to dial)
Per Robert B's comment below - this can absolutely be achieved using the Park feature.
It could be more slick (i.e. recognise in the mobile app recognise that you are on a call (similar to the way a meeting works) and just click to join on the mobile and hang up on the desktop app (again, the same as I can for a meeting) but, whilst we are waiting, the Park option achieves the desired result.

you should be able to do this with the call-parking feature. park a call on desk, retrieve on mobile or elsewhere
Absolutely need this! can't walk around with a laptop in hand :)
alternate app "Circuit" has this function - very convenient - can pull an active call from one client app to another (i.e. mobile to laptop) - all chat content & attachments mirror to all devices on a user's account. This is one feature that keeps me using Circuit.
We really need this. Thanks!

would be great if we could switch active calls between computer and mobile devices

Currently it is not possible to pull active MS Teams calls devices
Just Do It!
I would like to add to this request. Maybe an option like "Pull Call". If all devices are signed in with the same username, all chats and meeting are already visible, therefore, a "Pull Call" would simply all the mobile device to takeover the call and terminate it on the PC. This versus, join the call on your mobile and have it active on your PC at the same time!

This feature works so well in Circuit application and it gives you flexibility to move around during the meeting seamlessly. Would love to see the same in Teams please.

Needed feature for a mobile society.

Why is it that not possible to pull active calls from Teams between devices? This seems a rudimentary functionality. Other apps do this, even the in house developed one my company uses. Come on Microsoft!! I will tell Satya Nadella the same, we multitask today on phones, tablets and PC's. Who does not get this? I start a call in the car on mobile, arrive at the office and transition to my PC. Who does not do this in the modern business enterprise?

While this is possible, if CALL PARK is turned on, it would be nice to have a HOT SWITCH.
On my 8x8 VOIP system, I dial *88, from another device and my existing call is immediately transferred to that device.
Similarly,The opposite direction as well. I receive a call while mobile and return to my desk and want to switch to my desktop client (especially to share/view-shared screen).
Also useful if you start the call on your mobile app and them the caller starts sharing content - a formal meeting allows split clients (i.e. you can attend on multiple devices), but not a direct call.
