"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Because the question wasn't about Skype. It was about Teams.

Okay, since you have started with Skype, I thought you are asking it in Skype..
With respect to Teams, it seems you can add it out and it should work as well.. (FYI, I'm not using Teams but found the below articles)
