MC277640: Microsoft Teams: Spam Notification in Call Toast

We are thrilled to bring you Spam Call Notifications. This unique, vanguard feature release will enable calls that are likely Spam calls to be identified in the call toast. This is rolling out to Teams desktop and web. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85386.

  • All answered or missed calls that are likely Spam calls will be reflected respectively in the call history screen as well.

The spam call notification feature automatically evaluates incoming calls and identifies probable spam calls as “spam likely” in the call toast. Users still have the option to answer or reject the call, and all “spam likely” calls (regardless of whether they were answered or rejected) will also be reflected in the call history list.
