Welcome to the Poly Community.
We are working with our Partner Microsoft, who delivers the Microsoft Teams application running on our MTRoA devices.
We are completely dependent on our Partner and their software so therefore if you are able to escalate this with your Microsoft Premier CSAM and in addition, raise a ticket with Poly Support.
It's a standard response it seems around these parts. Poly support team said 3.5 would fix these issues, clearly it does not, so pass off to Microsoft. Can't Poly collaborate with MS somewhat to ensure both firmware (X50/TC8) and software (Teams APK) are released concurrently and actually work? I think the customer deserves that at least.
Hello @SiBr ,
First of all, I am unsure if you know, but my capacity within this community is a private matter aka not my day job.
Poly does work with our partner Microsoft and as a result, have received the latest APK which was supposed to address the previously introduced issue. If you still see the issue I can only recommend working with Microsoft as something in your network in relation to the Microsoft supplied APK is still causing the issue. Only Microsoft can fix this and the easiest way is to work with Microsoft support. Poly cannot open a ticket with Microsoft on your behalf.
I appreciate your input here. As you can imagine we're frustrated that a system Poly advertises as "Certified for Teams" isn't working as intended, if at all. I've been placating the CEO for weeks now on this and using 3.5 as the carrot to keep him from ripping the things down and getting them sent back. When he's notified that 3.5 was installed and the issues remain, sometimes worsen, that will be the end of it.
It is not a network issue. The X50 and TC8 are on the same network, talking fine. Watching the firewall logs during operation/calls, no traffic is being prevented. We have hundreds of users using teams within the organisation from their laptops and mobile devices.
On another note. Poly Support seems to have gone cold since I've reached out to tell them 3.5 didn't help with the issues. What I would really like is for someone from Poly to reach out and do some testing with me, take some logs from the device for review and provide me with an idea of what the issue is and whether it's been raised with MS. I have set a deadline in my mind that if nothing improves they'll be returned and I'll probably stay away from Poly devices in the future after this debacle.
Hello @SiBr ,
I can only suggest for you to work with our support team and in parallel work with our Partner Microsoft who supply the Android Apps running on both the Studio and the TC8
Alternatively, simply downgrade to 3.2.3 as everything works on the older release of Microsoft Teams software. The side effect is the changed UI on the TC 8
Download link for General Settings > Device Management > Download Update From:> set to Custom URL and Update Server Address: > https://swupdate.lens.poly.com/polyos/3.2.3/280012
Thanks. Can confirm 3.2.3 works flawlessly in terms of video. Shame the TC8 is far less intuitive.
We'll work with this for now. Thanks for the link. Downgrading all X50s from 3.5 now.
First time today we used the X50 on our monthly meeting and I was in the board room. It worked but my users say they prefer the wireless keyboard mouse option because it works without any issue. They saying the problem is with TC8. It sometime freezes for a very short time muting the mic etc.. it's a shame I bought 2 of the TC8 and not using it. All are on latest F/W (3.5). The keyboard option works without any issues and it's only £25 on Amazon but I like the TC8. It's looks like a SW bug from Microsoft as this software was only in beta for 1 week so unlikely they managed to catch and fix all bugs in that time!. Anyone else having this issue ?
Video on X30 and X50's still not working for us after 'upgrading' to 188.8.131.524025, Teams App 1449/184.108.40.2061051904 or 1449/220.127.116.111070803
Management are getting pretty fed up, as am I. Would not recommend these to anyone looking to purchase them
Does Microsoft and/or Polycom do any testing before releasing these updates?
Will try down grading to 3.2.3...
It's a pity the interface on the TC8 is so crap compared to the newer versions though
