How to make a test call under Microsoft Teams

August 24, 2023

OK so let’s make this fast

If you are coming from Skype background and you are looking for this (or any kind of contact that you can call) :

Skype test service

Then you are looking for this input on the top of Teams (at the time of writing this article):

Microsoft Teams command input on top of the app

where you can type “test” which will translate to /testcall (/ commands are the same thing as / commands in Slack)

so help will find this command (for me in the end of suggestions list) :

Microsoft Teams testcall command

which will in the end open a call window like this and you can easily test your HW Microsoft Teams echo bot

But the most common way how to get to this is to go to the settings section / devices where you will find a button “Make a test call”. Make a test call button

Hope this helps.
