Back in March, Microsoft announced that they will soon add support for End-to-end encryption for Teams calls. After testing the feature in preview over the past few months, Microsoft today announced the general availability of end-to-end encryption (E2EE) for ad hoc 1:1 Teams VoIP calls. If E2EE is enabled, the following features won’t be available during a call:

  • Recording
  • Live caption and transcription
  • Call transfer (blind, safe, and consult)
  • Call Park
  • Call Merge
  • Cal Companion and transfer to another device
  • Add participant to make the one-to-one call a group call

To support customer security and compliance requirements, IT will have full control of who can use E2EE in the organization. E2EE can be enabled for the whole organization or just a subset of users.
