Microsoft Phone System
Previously known as Microsoft Business Voice, it’s the phone system built for productivity.
Microsoft teams calling for ultimate collaboration
Microsoft Phone System is cloud-based telephony built for productivity. Communication is the lifeblood of any team. However, many businesses still use outdated communication tools that waste time and get in the way of collaboration. That’s why we’re excited to introduce a calling solution designed with businesses like yours in mind.

Microsoft Phone System FAQs
What's included with Microsoft Phone System?
Microsoft Phone System gives you all the features of an enterprise-grade phone system. You can make and receive any call, set out-of-office and holiday messages, transfer and hold calls, and much more. What’s more, you can migrate any existing phone numbers and generate as many new ones as you need.
What are the call plan costs?
There are two options for choosing a call plan – Microsoft’s own calling plan or a Direct Routing call plan. Microsoft calling plans are created and managed by Microsoft. They are expensive and not available everywhere. That’s why we recommend selecting a direct routing plan for your Business voice.
Direct routing is a more flexible and cost-effective alternative to Microsoft calling plans. Find out more here.
Which devices does the Phone System support?
Because Microsoft Phone System works through Teams, you can use any supported device. That means, with one click, you can turn your desk phone, smartphone, tablet, Mac or PC into an international calling device.
