Make calls in outlook 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to make telephone calls within outlook 2016 using contacts and a modem connected to the telephone line with a headset?

    I am based in the UK.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    According to my research, in Outlook client, you can call your contacts via Skype or Teams:

    1. Double click a contact card.
    2. Click More > Call...


    However, if you'd like to make telephone calls within Outlook client, I'm afraid there is not a build-in way to achieve it. You can refer to the suggestion of Diane in this thread.

    Hope this can be helpful.

    Regards,

    Aidan Wang

  • Hi Allan,

    No It is not possible to make calls directly using  outlook 2016 unless you use Skype for business or Webex or Teams or any other 3rd party Plugins.
