Hang up function for unanswered calls
When using MS Teams on the RealWear HMT-1 and I make a call to someone that doesn't answer or I call the wrong person there isn't a way to hang up the call.
I have to power down the device and reboot to get going again.
It is appalling that Microsoft has not addressed this. It is completely disruptive, if the system tries to call the wrong number, or calls you and the phone will not answer. There needs to be a way to hang up (or for the meeting host to hang up) on a call that doesn't go through. Please figure this out Microsoft and post back to this thread.

Same issue. I call someone external to the organization to add them to a meeting (which means I can't see their status in teams), they don't answer. There is no way to end the call and continue with the meeting. How on earth was this overlooked by the Teams software architect? This is like building a car that won't allow you to brake until it reaches its destination.

It's been nine months since the initial post by Mr Larson. Any updates MS? This is VERY frustrating.
Seriously this is a HUGE flaw! Many times I'll be talking to a coworker, and we realize we need to ask someone else a questions - we've tried to add them by teams meeting audio call, because even though their status shows "away" from desk/computer/etc., that doesn't mean they aren't NEAR their desk/computer/etc....and then if they really are actually unavailable "away," we have to end our meeting and start over because we can't hang up on the unanswered person. Come on, with so many virtual meetings nowadays, how has this not become feature of Teams??
I would love for this feature to be added. I have clicked the wrong person and there's no escape but to end the meeting and start again. I use breakout rooms all day every day with my students so I am always calling...and I have wanted this "hang up" option regularly.
Same issue here
It seems like such a small tweak on Microsoft's end. I can't really understand why it isn't already a feature. I am calling students into meetings and sometimes the list jumps and I get someone I already tried that isn't going to answer and I don't have a way to end the call. It's frustrating. Worse yet is when you accidentally call someone that you didn't mean to call. You have to wait and interrupt their day so they can hang up. Silly.

Agreed. Drives me nuts. Especially with a accidental call my boss and cant hang up!
I have the same issue.
Microsoft, please add "Terminate Call" as an option if I want to "hang up the call".
