Dialing out from a Microsoft Teams meeting so other people can join it
As the meeting organizer, you can dial out using the Teams app to let other people join the same meeting using their phones.
When you dial out to someone, we recommend that you do so using their full phone numbers (including the country/region code - E.164 format).
Please note that:
- You can dial out only if you join a meeting using Teams.
- The meeting organizer, has been enabled for audio conferencing, OR, in the case no audio conferencing license is assigned, is allowed to make calls to the public switched telephone network via online calling plans or direct routing.
- The meeting organizer is Granted an online dial out policy that enables dial out from conferencing enabled
We are frequently updating how you can manage features, so the steps here might be a little different from what you see.
Here's how to get dial out to work:
Step 1: In the meeting, use the Add people option to dial out to a phone number. Step 2: Enter the full phone number, including the country/region code in the Invite someone or dial a number box.
Supported countries and regions
Dial-out is only available to some countries/regions. For complete list, see Country and region availability for Audio Conferencing and Calling Plans.
