Hi Team,

We are using MS teams for meeting platform. We have a requirement to set up a Room Device with MS teams. When the engineer configured it with his personal Teams account and it worked fine. Do we need to change it to a MS teams room license instead of a standard E3/E5 Teams license? Can't we just set up a generic account with E3/E5 teams license and set up the account with the same instead of procuring a Teams room license? What is the difference? What could be the things we cannot do with usual E3/E5 Teams license along with Audio conference add-on.

    Hi @GoodResource

    Microsoft Teams Room is an additional Microsoft Teams product that brings video, audio, and content sharing to conference rooms. Each meeting room device, such as a Teams Rooms console,

    Surface Hub, and Teams panel, needs a Teams Rooms license. Teams provides two licenses for Teams Rooms: Microsoft Teams Rooms Pro and Microsoft Teams Rooms Basic.

    For more details about Teams Rooms licenses, you could refer to: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/rooms/rooms-licensing

    In short, adding licenses gives you the flexibility to add features only to the users in your organization who needs them. E3 licenses get best-in-class productivity apps and core security and

    compliance features for your business. Microsoft 365 E5 adds capabilities for voice and analytics.
