Questions & Answers from Episode 37

Q. Where are the new release notes for Windows and Android?
A. They are available here.

Q. If using a Teams Display in phone booths (eg Neat Frame) it would be beneficial to be able to use bluetooth beacon like with proximity join to transfer a call from mobile to the device. Is this something that is coming? 
A. This is not possible today with Teams Displays. It would be possible if the device is setup as a MTR which is a potential future plan.

Q. What device are you presenting from?
A. We are using a Neat Bar in BYOD mode connected to my Macbook and Teams client.

Q. How can you get into BOYD mode? Just by connecting a PC/Mac to the bar or you need to change any setting  on the device itself?
A. BYOD is disabled by default, but you can enable in the device settings menu, so when a USB cable is connected, it will switch to BYOD mode.

Q. Voyager Free 60 Did you know that if you push the Teams button and hold it for a couple of seconds, it raises your hand.
A. Great tip, thanks.
