Meeting Call Me Back Number
After entering a meeting, if you would like Teams to call you back you need to enter a phone number in the Call Me Back box. (See attached file.) It would be great if this box would remember the last number called and there was a user setting to save a default number. This would save you from having to enter in the number every single time.
We are happy to inform you that you are able to join meetings by choosing “Call me” from the join dropdown on iOS & Android. To use this feature, you need to provide a phone number where you can receive a phone call. If the call is accepted, your meeting audio will switch to the cellular connection. Your personal and work phone numbers, if added to your account, will be available for selection automatically.
The team is working to release this feature for Desktop. I don’t have dates to share at this time, but will keep you posted.

When I click the "call me using phone audio" button, it shows me a list of phone numbers that I've used in the past. Good feature for sure.
The problem is that I would like to remove a few of these phone numbers because they were "one-time" numbers that I don't have anymore because I work from home now.
Has anybody here seen an option or a workaround to remove numbers from this list?
In 2021, i am looking for this feature where I find issue with my Teams a lot of times and use the call me back option most of the times. If i have a default number to select there, that would ease my process of calling me back on my phone and would help me to quickly join the call.
When will remembering the phone number to call by default be enabled for Linux clients?
Would be nice if "call me" actually worked...Either to a manually entered number or the one that is store in Teams that I have no ability to edit. I'm not quite sure why the feature is present if it does not work.
How was this not included in the original roll out? Seems quite basic.
I have noticed a couple people have a favorites / call back # in Teams. Is this an option to turn on / new feature? This is the Windows 10 PC client seems like Teams v1 (in help about).
ok I storied few numbers, but now I want to delete one of the number, How do I do it?
The lack of a remembered phone number in the Call Me function has become disruptive.
We are migrating from Webex to Teams and multiple of my end users have complained.
In fact, Webex has a feature that will automatically call you back (remembers last setting) when the host starts the call.
Also, I have noticed that Teams doesn't always let you use the Call Me function. Does the host have to let you in or some other lack of automatic ability to just use the call me?
Webex allows me to setup a personal meeting room that staff can call into even before a host actively starts the Webex as you can allow anyone in your organization to be a host.
Either way, can't you modify Teams to just remember the last number it called? Would resolve a lot of this. Thanks!
Will we be able to save or change the favorite phone numbers for the call me feature ?
I see that favorite phone numbers are being saved when the new calling experience is enabled and provided as options when the Call me feature is used. Is there a way to edit those favorite phone numbers ? Please advise

Almost 1 year !!!
Boo! How come Skype and do it (on desktop) and Teams can't? Teams is replacing Skpe ;-(

Drop down that can be customized. Multiple numbers to choose from. Select a default option. This is long overdue.

If you can add it to desktop soon, that would be wonderful. Thank you.
Thanks!! Every platform - and I literally use Webex, Zoom, Chimes, etc. multiple times a day - either save the last number dialed - or even better, allow you to setup "profiles" that you can quickly pull down to set office, home & mobile numbers. Just saving last # called on the PC would be a huge timesaver. Saves many minutes a day as we run to back to back meetings (often late). Webex has this setup the best currently for its "Call Me" functionality. I assume you can replicate easily.

The feature is available now, if you activate the option to open meetings in a separate window (Settings/ Turn on new meeting experience) the list of call back numbers will show when you join a meeting and pick "Phone Audio".
it needs to save a phone number so we dont have enter it everytime.

Any update on this for Desktop. It is one of the most requested features in my company.
Please add this feature- it's so annoying to have to enter the phone number time after time.
Good news that it is progressing on this matter. I agree with other comments that it will be very useful to have this feature on the desktop app and online app as well. Thanks
