There are two parts to this topic:
1) Completed: Bypass the lobby for PSTN: The ability for admins and organizers to be able to specify a meeting option to bypass the PSTN lobby independently of the VoIP lobby.
2) On the backlog: Ability for an organizer joined via PSTN to admit users from the lobby with a PIN. If you enable “Always let callers bypass the lobby” in your meeting options, people calling in by phone will join your meeting without having to wait for someone to admit them.

Please Note: In Q2CY20, we launched a new default in for the Teams meeting policy (https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=63388). If tenants have not modified their default meeting policy, lobby is now enforced.

Still not working. Same issue as Mike Yam documented with the same settings as the test environment. Guests are still stuck in the lobby while the host is already logged in. There are occasional prompts to Admit people but as soon as you click Admit, the caller is disconnected from the lobby.
Had an audio call today for 40 attendees and after retrying for 30 minutes, attendees gave up. I'm ready to give up as well and buy into a different product
