Microsoft Teams calls are getting end-to-end encryption in July:

Microsoft Teams is getting better security and privacy next month with the addition of end-to-end encrypted 1:1 voice calls.

While Microsoft Teams already encrypts data at rest and in transit, it allows administrators to configure automatic recording and transcription of voice calls.

Due to this, Microsoft Teams calls are not suitable for sharing very sensitive information that should remain private between two individuals.

Starting in July, Microsoft Teams is getting end-to-end encryption for 1:1 VoIP calls so that their discussions remain entirely private.

    No confusion at all except at your end. You do need some sort of authentication when using DH to avoid mitm. The authentication could be via a trusted cental site using proprietary methods, or by public/private keys with all the CA infrastructure, or by using a distributed public announcement of appropriate info. Any secure authentication method can be used and should be used with DH.
