In June 2022 Microsoft retired Business Voice and consolidated it with their Enterprise offerings into a new SKU named Teams Phone with Calling Plan. Teams Phone with Calling Plan is an all-in-one communication solution that helps businesses reduce costs and simplify operations.
Teams Phone with Calling Plan brings together calling, chat, meetings, and collaboration into a single app, enabling users to make phone calls from anywhere, on any device—including computers, smartphones, desk phones, and meeting rooms. To use the Teams Phone System with Calling Plan bundle, you need a Microsoft 365 account that has Teams Phone with Calling Plan bundle licenses. Once you have an account and licenses, you can start managing your employees' phone numbers.
