Microsoft Teams allows you to join another call using a second device within the program. If you need another device to connect to the call within the program, you can do so using the method illustrated below. There is no need for you to exit your current call on your device; currently, you can simply add the device to the call, and Microsoft Teams will automatically assign both your devices to the call. Read through the steps below and see exactly how you can assign another device to a call in Microsoft Teams. 

  • Firstly, open Microsoft Teams on your second device.

However, once the user has accepted your request, you will be assigned to the meeting, and then you will be able to continue or use the other device, depending on what is required for the meeting. You can also transfer to another device; however, this will remove you from your current device and move you onto the new one.

Why may you want to join a Microsoft Teams call on a second device?

One reason you may want to use another device to join a Microsoft Teams call is that Microsoft Teams on your current device may not be working correctly. As a temporary fix, you can sign in to another device and use that device’s functionality to ensure Microsoft Teams is running correctly. An example is if the microphone on your current device is not working, you can use the other device with a working microphone to engage in the call. You can use the steps shown above to easily get the call on another device with your Microsoft Teams account. 

Another reason you may want another device assigned to a call in Microsoft Teams is that another user needs to join the same call as you. If you have a user who has issues with their Microsoft account or cannot sign in to their device, you can use this method to sign in to another device. The user will then be able to use your account to engage in a call that they’re supposed to be part of.
