Using Cortana in Microsoft Teams Rooms

Cortana voice assistance in Microsoft Teams Rooms lets you have a touchless experience for joining or ending a meeting, adding a number to a meeting, or calling a number from your conference room.


  • You can say "Cortana" or "Hey Cortana" to start a command. Both will work fine.

  • You can also say "cancel" or "never mind" if you want to cancel a command or start over.

  • Say "Cortana help" for a list of ways Cortana can help.

  • For more information about Cortana, visit Cortana in Microsoft 365
