This guide will help you gain a thorough understanding of Microsoft’s phone solution, assisting you in determining whether it is suitable for your business needs.
What is Microsoft Teams Phone?

Key features of Microsoft Teams Phone
Microsoft Teams Phone comes with several features specifically designed to enhance business communication and promote seamless collaboration within teams and across companies:
How is Microsoft Teams Phone available?
Microsoft Teams Phone is available as part of two subscriptions: Microsoft Teams Phone Standard and Microsoft 365 E5. While there is a third subscription – Microsoft Teams Phone with Calling Plan – it is not available for Australia (as of the time of writing this).
Phone Standard provides you with all the basic features you need for effective business communication. This includes voice and video calls, multi-device calling, and more. With Teams Phone Standard, you can replace your traditional business phone system with a modern, cloud-based solution.
Microsoft 365 E5 is a comprehensive enterprise-grade productivity suite that includes Microsoft Teams Phone along with other advanced security and compliance tools.
