Google has confirmed that Android phone users with the Microsoft Teams app installed may not be able to call 911 in an emergency in certain situations. The issue occurs only when someone has the Teams app installed but is not signed in. It also does not happen with versions of Android older than version 10. Users who may be affected are urged to make sure they are, and remain, signed in to Teams. If not, Google says that uninstalling and reinstalling the app "will address the problem in the interim". Microsoft will be releasing an update to the Teams app soon to permanently fix the issue. Google will also address the issue in its next monthly Android security update in early January.
