Microsoft is the only software development company in teh world that makes a telephony application that does not allow the software to ring your speakers. Seriously, I challenge you to find any other telephony app in the world that only allows you to choose a single device and Not ALSO allow you to ring a speaker so you know you have a call!
How in the world are you supposed to know a call is coming in if you have teams set to use a headset and are NOT looking directly at your computer?
This is just stupidity!! There is no excuse and trust me, If I was in charge of the software development cycle, someone would have lost their job over this!!!

The more I think about it, the more silly this whole product becomes. Seriously? I need to Open a specific team to see my calls history, files, chats etc?
Microsoft, Please, I am not a young person anymore and this technology you are developing is still back in the 80's.
Stop focusing on Apps that do specific things. They are Silos. Look at Office 365 as a cloud computing Fabric. Build functionality into that fabric. Present functionality to the tenant and provide a single canvas, board, space, area, portal, platform, or whatever you want to call it that allows the individual user put together the objects that will make them most functional. Do this at the entire tenant level.
Now I have files all over the darn place in Teams, Libraries, and OneDrive. That's ThreeDrives if you ask me. Imagine if it were true that only OneDrive actually existed.
Simply Visit http://www.office.com and select Files. BAM! There are all your files. I mean seriously Microsoft, how hard is that? Why not first fix your file storage platform and then build from there.
I don't think there is any need what so ever for an app called TEAMS. Once I join the Office 365 Tennant I am part of the Organization Team. There should be no need to further slice up Organizations into Team Silos.
