[How-To] Upgrade the Yealink CP960 Firmware to Microsoft Teams

As of today, January 8th, 2019, Yealink has released the new firmware for their much-anticipated Microsoft Teams devices. These devices were demo'd at Microsoft Ignite in September of 2018, with their Microsoft Teams interfaces, but the actual firmware release was delayed a bit. However, the wait is now over, and the following devices can now be upgraded to Microsoft Teams:

  • CP960 - IP Conference Phone
  • T58A - IP Phone
  • T56A - IP Phone


For the CP960, the new firmware version is 73.15.0.20.

For the T58A, the new firmware version is 58.15.0.20.

For the T56A, the new firmware version is 58.15.0.20.

This upgrade, as well as similar upcoming upgrades for other vendors that have upcoming Microsoft Teams devices, is very welcome, as it extends the familiarity of the Microsoft Teams meeting & calling experience to the physical devices that sit on our desks, or in conference rooms. This makes switching between a smartphone, a desktop, or a deskphone a very fluid experience for most end users.

For a complete video walk-through of where to obtain the firmware, and how to update the firmware on the devices, check out the below videos:
