Unable to change settings to join meeting over voice/see content over data
There seems to be something wrong with the app settings.
I have been trying to change the sessions to allow for joining meetings voice/content over data, but it always defaults back to allowing joint meetings over wifi only.
What is the use of having an option to allow a user to change this setting but never actually applying the changes. Secondly how many users would be in wifi if they are on the move on their iPhone?
This is very frustrating - Microsoft please fix this asap.
