A new firmware update is bringing native Bluetooth for Microsoft Teams to Surface Headphones 2+ on Mac or Windows PCs.

“An exciting new firmware update for Surface Headphones 2+ enables Microsoft Teams certification over native Bluetooth without a dongle,” Microsoft’s Harshitha Murthy writes. “Your Surface Headphones 2+ will be certified for Microsoft Teams with high-quality speech capture and audio so that you sound your best. Experience the convenience of one less thing to carry as you navigate different workspaces during hybrid work life.”

With this new firmware update, Surface Headphones 2+ will become the first device to be certified for Teams over Bluetooth. In addition to the quality benefits, owners will also experience synchronized control with the 2+’s dedicated Microsoft Teams button, which lets you answer/end calls and control your volume and mute state directly on the headset without the dongle.

And you can still use the dongle, of course. Doing so will provide a better connection in crowded workspaces, Microsoft notes, and it has different light states to indicate when you are connected, muted/unmuted, or receiving an incoming call.

The new firmware update will be available on July 28, and you can update your Surface Headphones 2+ via the Surface app (or, if on a Mac, via the Microsoft Accessory Updater tool).
