Continue meeting audio when iphone is locked
When on a call/meeting, I am dropped when I lock my iPhone. I would like to be able to continue the call/meeting when the phone is locked like in a traditional phone call.

+1 on this for Android.
Situation - I have to walk my kids to school while on a conference call. I'm using a wired headset, one earpiece in listening to the call, device in my pocket. I need to lock the device when it goes in my pocket or who knows what the screen might do, as soon as I lock, the Teams call drops.

Bluetooth headphones doesn’t solve this. Major bug. The fact that MSFT hasn’t fixed it gives us a good view into how few ppl actually use Teams.

Please get this feature added as soon as possible. Bluetooth audio should not be a requirement to allow locking the phone while on a call/meeting. To call out a use case for this, in an era of working from home we need to be able to multitask with work and home, and that means sometimes leaving the mobile device on speakerphone while I tend to a kid (for example). At the point I leave it on speaker and put it in my pocket, I need to lock the phone.
absolutely need this please.

No other conferencing app (ZOOM) has this issue. Please fix as we are using Teams more & more.

You can lock your phone and stay on a Teams call if you are connected to bluetooth earphones. This wont work while on speaker unfortunately, but really useful with the earphones!
This is highly aggravating. In a listen only Teams meeting you have to keep your phone unlocked/screen on. It’s pointless and heaven forbid you accidentally hit the app drawer or card view and stop the meeting if you put your phone in your pocket unlocked.
EDIT: I’m on Android and it has the same problem for me.

Did anyone find a solution? Same happens with skype for business as well.
Baffled that Teams can’t do stuff Skype does effortlessly. No wonder it isn’t gaining traction.
