As working from home becomes the new norm for many and connecting with customers requires safe practices that often means reaching out virtually, Microsoft has announced a series of Teams certified devices that will make these connections easier for users. Through the Microsoft Device Certification Program, third party devices are verified as having the ability to provide a compatible and high-quality experience when used with Microsoft Teams.

Certification requires elements such as superior audio and integrated call control, but additionally many of these newly certified devices will provide a Teams button which offers the power to bring Teams to the forefront of your screen, quickly join a meeting that has started or check your missed calls and voicemails. Most of the headsets also offer a premium microphone optimized for use in a noisy environment.

Teams Headsets

  • EPOS wired IMPACT headsets, previously certified for Skype for Business, now offer a firmware upgrade that allows the call answer button and LED to act like a Teams button. Users can now receive alerts and engage with Teams by pressing the button to quickly join meetings or check missed calls.
  • Jabra introduces Evolve2 professional headsets with a dedicated Microsoft Teams button that alerts users of notifications and allows them to take quick actions. The certification for premium microphone for open office allows for clarity in a loud and busy location.

  • Poly’s selection of headsets including corded and Bluetooth wireless, are now available with a dedicated Teams button with some of the models meeting Microsoft’s premium microphone for open office requirement. Customers can expect a firmware upgrade for some existing Skype for Business certified devices that will enable Teams integration using the hook switch.
