Apparently, the issue only affects Android users who have the Microsoft Teams app installed but aren’t currently logged into Microsoft’s video conferencing software. However, the immediate fix for this issue for users running Android 10 or higher is to uninstall and then reinstall the app. An update for the app itself will also be made available to fully resolve the issue in the near future. At the same time, Google will release an Android security patch on January 4 to fix the issue permanently on its end.
In its comment on the Reddit user’s original post, Google explained that the emergency calling bug is the result of an unintended interaction between Microsoft Teams and Android, saying: “We determined that the issue was being caused by unintended interaction between the Microsoft Teams app and the underlying Android operating system. Because this issue impacts emergency calling, both Google and Microsoft are heavily prioritizing the issue, and we expect a Microsoft Teams app update to be rolled out soon – as always we suggest users keep an eye out for app updates to ensure they are running the latest version.”
