Microsoft Audio Conferencing


Sometimes people in your organization will need to use a phone to call in to a meeting. Office 365 includes the Audio Conferencing feature for just this situation. People can call in to a Microsoft Teams meeting using a phone, instead of using the Microsoft Teams app on a mobile device or PC.

An Microsoft Audio Conferencing license is required to host or create a Microsoft Teams meeting that contains a dial-in phone number. Participants can then use the phone number to dial into the audio portion of the meeting. These meetings allow up to 250 phone attendees.
