Speed dial improvements

  • You can now add contact names and phone numbers outside of your Azure Active Directory and Outlook contacts, so you can save that local pizza place as a speed dial for those Friday afternoons!

  • If a contact has more than one number, you can now select which number to save as your speed dial number.

Make a video call

Now you can choose between audio or video calls.

Interactive Voice Response (IVR) dialpad

You can now access the dialpad in an audio or video call, giving you full Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) support.

Make a call using the dial pad or from a conversation space. The system automatically dials the phone number assigned to the contact. If there's not a phone number to dial, the assigned email address is used.
