We recently learned about a bug in Microsoft Teams and Android that prevents making emergency calls(911). The latest Microsoft Teams update (v1416/1.0.0.2021194504) is already available through the Google Play Store and it should fix this issue.

In a recent tweet, Mishaal Rahman notes that the updated version of Microsoft Teams calls the clearPhoneAccounts method of TelecomManager on the first launch, clearing all PhoneAccounts instances that were created previously. It then registers a single instance, thereby avoiding the emergency calling bug in Android.
