Able to switch audio device (between PC and mobile phone) during the MS teams meeting
Like to have the ability to switch audio device during the meeting.
As I could switch audio device from PC to mobile phone anytime I need.
PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE! IT IS CRITICAL FOR HEARING IMPAIRED FOLKS TO USE FOR CONFERENCE CALLS AND THEIR CAPTIONING SERVICES SUCH AS INNOCAPTION!
Please add this feature.
I would like to keep connected to a call on my laptop and then join on audio on my phone, switching to get up and go to the kitchen. I don't want to leave the call on my laptop. At the moment it's not able to do this

Cisco Webex works so well giving option to switch audio between computer or call to my phone
And back again.
And it's not using the call in details from the meeting details to call in via phone but having teams call the phone during the call so that it's a seemless transition and you don't have the audio and mic going on two devices simultaneously.
Use Webex as an example. It does this well.
Not everyone uses a laptop with a camera and microphone built in. I have employees that are on desktops and they need to be able to use their phone for the audio and share their screen to walk project team members and clients through project design. This is definitely a problem that should be fixed.

During screensharing it should be also possible to switch from one device to another!
I would like to use my mobile phone as the microphone and/or camera, and use the desktop to view shared content. I had an issue today where the mobile phone volume was too low but it was loud and clear on the desktop, so the ability to change the audio out device would be helpful -- unsure how to deal with feedback if the mobile is the microphone, however.

Skype did this, PLEASE add this feature to Microsoft Teams as well!!
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.
