Luxafor introduces integration with Microsoft Teams for “Teams Only” mode

Luxafor software integration Microsoft Teams presence

We are proud to announce that we have finalized our latest Luxafor  software update for Windows, which now includes integrated functionality with Microsoft Teams in “Teams Only” mode!

With the introduction of Microsoft Teams and the transitioning from Skype for Business, users were left with no option to display their status as Microsoft does not allow access to presence in Teams.

More and more of our loyal customers switched to “Teams Only” mode, and could not use our previous integration via Skype for Business. With our latest software update for Windows, Luxafor devices can change colors according to Microsoft Teams presence status and flash red during a call.

If you want to represent your Microsoft Teams presence/availability status via Luxafor Flag or Luxafor Bluetooth, you’ll find this short post handy!

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO CONNECT YOUR LUXAFOR DEVICE WITH MICROSOFT TEAMS:

 

1. Connect Luxafor device.

2. Download and install the latest Luxafor software version for Windows here.
