Our company has the Teams App installed both on our computer and phone. Sometimes when I initiate a video call to a coworker, it rings on their phone instead of their computer. They don't even have the app open on their phone. How can I choose to accept the video call on my phone or computer?

If I had to guess, they were away status on the desktop or had focus assist / DnD enabled, which I don't think the phone respects status's currently as it uses the mobile devices phone stream directly.
