What's New in Cisco Jabber for Microsoft Teams

February 2021

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.

Interactive Voice Response (IVR) dialpad

You can now access the dialpad when in an audio call, giving you full Dual tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) support.
