How do I enable calling features on Teams as we have on Skype for Business?

I think the first you need is to have a proper Office 365 plan

We have Office365 E3 and my account has a SFB calling plan on it which is how I use calling there. What else?

Doesnt this page basically say it isn't available yet?

 

For now, you cannot invite external users as attendees in Teams yet like you can in SFB Meeting Invite, I believe you can do that in soon future. So, if you need to invite external users, just copy the invite message and email them. 

Are you trying to do a VoIP call in a chat message to someone in Skype for Business instead of Teams? Pretty sure that interop isn't in yet. To my knowledge neither is PSTN calling, just conferencing. 

I'm in a meeting and want to "add" a person by dialing their phone number like I can do on SFB. The option is there so I would expect it to work.

Only Conferencing features currently active as far as I know, the PSTN direct calling doesn't work, I think you said you had calling features from you Skype for Business being the Outbound calling and not a Conferencing license which is separate set of licenses and only thing active to my knowledge. Until you get the "Call" tab in your Teams showing up, we won't be able to call anything or call out from the adhoc meetings etc. 

Hmmm... Okay so any reason the feature is available to "attempt" to use?

I didn't notice your reply while i was typing my last one. I don't have conferencing so I can't help unfortunately :(. I thought you were trying to just place PSTN calls from within Teams.

@Harrison Hersch, Hi !

I'll tell what's the problem ?

For you, it says call using a phone number, isn't it ?

For me also it says that and when I try, it doesn't work.

The problem is that the IT Admin has disabled calling phone numbers and has given you permission to call only the people using their name. If you have the Admin app in Microsoft Office, you can enable it, yourself !
