Microsoft fixed the bug with the update
A number of Microsoft Teams application users recently reported that they could not call the 911 emergency support line from their phones after installing the application. Technology giant Google, which released an official statement on the subject, confirmed the question and admitted that there was such a problem, albeit for a limited audience.
The company determined that the problem was caused by an unwanted reaction between the Microsoft Teams app and the Android operating system. Google stated that both Google and Microsoft are taking the issue very seriously and an update will be made to fix the issue in Teams. Admitting that the problem is only experienced on the Android platform, Google stated that they will solve the problem very soon.
Stating that it will release a security update to fix this problem on Android on January 4, Google said that only one user could confirm that they had this problem while using Android 11 and Pixel 3, but recommended that all Teams users delete the application and reinstall it.
However, after a week passed, Microsoft released a new Teams update and it was stated that the problem was officially resolved. In this sense, a very critical security problem such as the inability to make emergency calls has been prevented.
