Hi all, as you all probably know O365 customers are being forced to upgrade to Teams soon...issue is the number of desk phones that support Teams is still minimal.  We currently use Yealink T48G with EXP40 expansion modules with Skype for Business and it works fairly well.  Since the T48G doesn't support Teams we purchased the T56A which does, the issue is the expansion module that is compatible with the T56A, the EXP50, does not support Teams! I am assuming this is an issue with ALL desk phone manufacturers that support teams and will be a hindrance for us and all other firms that need the modules.  I spoke with Yealink and they confirmed that Microsoft needs to release an update to support the modules.  Is there a timeline for this? Thanks.

Hi @reditguy 

 

 

Microsoft has it's own supported device list as below and unfortunately there is no announcement of releasing a patch for specific device such as EXP50

Thank you

Hi, any update on this? Are there currently any desk phones with expansion modules / sidecars that support Teams ?
