Fix Drive Mode in CarPlay in iOS 13
Teams call controls are no longer available in CarPlay with iOS 13 release.

When I have to visit clients and need to use the iPhone 7+ (version 13.6) Map app on the CarPlay, if my corporate entity just decided to use Team for all their meetings; every time I enter the meeting a few minutes later the center console of the 2018 Equinox that is presenting the navigation from Map, it goes blank and the iPhone keeps beeping and it seems that the iPhone gets overheated (but I cannot confirm completely). However, I need to know where I need to go without delay, and have to exit the Team meeting. I have no problem in the past using Skype while driving.

Yes, same issues with CarPlay and Teams crashing during a call. iOS 13.5.1 and the current Teams App.
Let's not mix issues here:
* A better integration into CarPlay, a Teams CarPlay app => nice to have at best
* A crash of the app when using the Teams app and connect the phone to CarPlay system. THIS IS A BUG AND NEEDS TO BE FIXED ASAP. An app by itself should not crash the whole CarPlay system. Apple should have caught that bug and not allowed Teams app on the App store until Microsoft fixed this issue.
Hi, I am facing a more serious bug to fix.
Hi, here is my setting:
iOS 13.5.1 on an iPhone 7
Teams version 2.0.15
My iPhone is connected via USB cable to my CarPlay car audio system.
When I use the Teams app on iOS to join a call, everything works well. OK it is not a fully integrated CarPlay app, but at least I get the sound through my car stereo system and basic control such as "hang up, mute".
However when I connect my iPhone to my CarPlay system, the app consistently crashes after around 1-2 minutes. It kind of freezes my CarPlay (I cannot select any other icon on my CarPlay screen).
This is super annoying as I take my calls when I commute to work, and this is absolutely useless.
Latest update to iOS 13.5 and still no fix for Teams and CarPlay. Downloaded and installed the latest firmware for my 2020 F150 Sync, still no fix. Not a happy camper. Prior to these last few iOS updates, Teams worked beautifully in the car, now it is worthless.
Upgrading to iOS 13 has made Teams much less useful in my car. Please help get back the integration with Teams and Apple CarPlay!

Hi there! I have a similar idea posted for CarPlay and Android Auto under the following URL:
It currently has 813 votes and is already officially on the backlog, so if you'd like, please add your votes :-) Thank you!
very annoying that this has stopped working. Teams app should really be its own app on CarPlay just like Zoom
