Meetings are the lifeblood of any large (or even smaller) business, as any reader who is part of an enterprise will be able to attest.

Microsoft Teams has recently adopted the Skype for Business feature list, and now it appears the collaboration client is getting one new trick – the ability to manage audio conferences for people attending via POTS, the Plain Old Telephony System.

This is useful for clients connecting from outside, and for those who do not have access to VOIP hardware, including a microphone and headset.

In a series of unlisted videos, Microsoft explains how the feature will work in Teams.

Update: The videos have now been removed, but described a product with much of the feature set as the existing Skype for Business telephone conferencing system.

The new feature addresses one of the major differences in feature list between Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams, with many more that fully close the gap expected.
