I've been trying to test the new beaconing feature with the Teams iOS app and an IBM ThinkSmart Teams Room system (beaconing is enabled, device is in Skype default mode).  So far, I've not been successful.  Has anyone else tried this out and gotten it to work?  My phone is a foot away, I'm on the pre-join screen, but no dice on detecting the room.  Is there any way to test to verify the beaconing is actually transmitting?  It doesn't work in Teams default or Skype default mode.

@David Phillips we have three rooms with different kit we're testing out. For us, Bluetooth beaconing is working on the Lenovo ThinkSmart hub, but not the HP Slice or Crestron UC B140 setup. Teams app settings on the devices appear to be identical. Our DSE team is following up for us.
