Teams meetings enabled on Skype Room Systems v2 starting with the 4.0.8.0 update

4.0.8.0 update started pushing out to some SRS v2 devices via the Store on Friday, July 6th.  We expect that the update will be made available to all SRS v2 devices in the coming week.

 

4.0.8.0 enables both Skype for Business *and* Teams meetings support on Rooms Systems devices.  Teams is turned off by default once the update is applied.  Admins can enable Teams locally in device settings or via a remote xml push.

@David Groom is there way to update this manually? or have to wait for the Store to push to our devices?

 

@Joe Zhu

@Per Larsen Thanks. However, I don't think you can download the latest app from MSfB. I just tried, it's old version.

 @David Groom Is there a place to go to always see the latest version released along with the changes/bug fixes? At this point, I just have an alert for every time that you post something :)

@David GroomWill this update support modern auth?

Hi David,

is there any official page with new account requirements to allow existent SRS to start to work with Teams also?

I've setup our Test SRS to use SfB as primary and default client and also Teams, but I receive an error that systems could not access Teams at SRS start, even if SRS account is licensed with an E3 license.

Thank you

Best Regards

@Luca VitaliI noticed this too but it seems to eventually login as expected. My SRS system is using an E5 though. And I don't think I need to say it but make sure Teams is enabled in the License for the room.

We licence our Logitech SRS with the Common Area Phone SKU (after recommendation from Microsoft)

This bundle includes "Phone System" and "SfB Online Plan 2".

Presumably, this bundle will add in the equivalent teams feature?

Giving these devices an E3 is not cost-effective and is also non-compliant (as they are user-based not device-based)

Any word on when this is releasing to all units? The one machine with this new update is weirdly stable so I'd like to try it out on some other units but they refuse to download the new version.

New Contributor

@Brayden Hull I was wondering where and how to download the new version?

 

all my units are on old version

@Joe Zhu

Just make sure automatic updates are enabled on the Microsoft Store app and hope for the best. As far as I'm aware the deployment kit has not been updated so there's no way to force them up to this new version.

Microsoft

@Brayden Hull We'll be increasing the 4.0.8.0 availability to 50% in the next day or so.  I expect that we'll be at 100% availability by the end of next week.

 

4.0.x.0.msi is not yet available.

Hi @David Groom,

just a reminder that we use SCCM to deploy SRS application to our 270+ SRS units. So we look forward to msi version :)

Microsoft

@Pavel Aivazov - we're working on it!  I'll give you an update on where we're at next week.

I saw earlier today that Teams now comes in a free version for groups up to 300 people. Can we apply this licence to the SRS account (doesn't show up in the o365 admin portal yet)?

I'm hoping that will be an alternative to the Common Are Phone licence that we are currently using for them

@Luca Vitali we have this message after a reboot too, but looks like this is a login timing problem. After a few seconds this message is gone and everything works as expected.

@David Groom Looks like dual screen is not working under this release (4.0.8.0).  

Microsoft

@Joe Zhu 4.0.8.0 supports dual screen in SfB mode and single screen in Teams mode.  We will be enabling Teams mode dual screen in an upcoming update.
