Skype for Business Certified IP Phones with Microsoft Teams

For a complete, enriched Teams experience, we recommend customers use certified IP phones running Microsoft Teams natively and available on Teams Marketplace.


If customers have IP phones certified for Skype for Business, and are preparing for an upgrade to Microsoft Teams, the Skype for Business phones will continue to sign into the Skype for Business service and support a limited number of core functionalities listed below. There is no additional setup needed on the customer site for this to work. As customers prepare for the upgrade to Teams, they must consider deploying Teams native phones for a complete Teams experience.

Just to clarify, is it a subset of the above listed functionalities that will be supported on SfB certified IP phones or all of the ones in the list?

@Nathan Chapman all features on this list are supported

Except that if you follow the links, you find out that there is currently ZERO desk phones for Teams, and ONE camera.

@Lorne Rogers, there are 3 desk phones listed. These desk phones from Audiocodes and Yealink are available. A firmware updates will provide native teams experience for these devices. The new portfolio of Teams devices announced this year are planned to GA in early 2019.

@Chantal De Menezes, when I filtered for "teams" zero results showed.

@Kruthika Ponnusamy, you specifically call out "Incoming/Outgoing P2P calls from/to Teams users". Am I reading this right when I assume this means I cannot answer Call Queue calls on IP phones certified for Skype for Business?
