iPhone Siri announce calls issue. Announce repeats over and over

Copper Contributor

Using iPhone 12 on 16.0 and

MS teams version 4.16.1

Build: (general)

Calling Version : 2022.30.01.1

Release Branch : 2022Aug-T2


if I enable Siri announce and call to my Teams number the call gets announced by Siri but it repeats over and over. Eventually it stops. If I call my iPhones cell phone the call gets announced normally. 

The teams chat announcement come in clear and Siri has no issues saying the message, it’s only iPhones.

on Wi-Fi only iPad with the same versions, this incoming call feature works with no issues. The incoming call gets announced once. 

I record a video, it’ll just take a while to upload.

@Rc_08 indeed I also experience this issue. Only applicable to Teams calls.

@Rob Gijsberts 

Find any fix for this?  My iPhone started recently a behavior as follows on incoming call from external caller:

Announces caller name normally if known

Then Starts speaking gibberish like "i" "i" "i" "i" "eee"  "eee" "i" ... until I answer it or reject it.


Tried various settings on iPhone involving Siri, but nothing helps.

Of course not!! This is Teams and Microsoft after all. I've submitted feedback multiple times and this post got 0 response from anyone with Microsoft. I still have the feature enabled since it's funny to hear it glitch. I tell everyone it has been an issue since we moved all our calls to Teams. 

Has this item been escalated? Is there any open issue investigation?

@Ray Gay this is happening to me too...
