Details:

The voicemail feature that automatically activates an out-of-office greeting based on an out-of-office event in Outlook calendar will be retired in early June 2024 to reduce costs and strengthen customer data protection. Going forward, end users can manage their OOF greetings with two available options in the Teams client. It is recommended to notify all users of this change.
Today, end users have three options for voicemail OOF greetings activation:
All the time
When I have an Outlook auto reply
When I have an Out of Office calendar event (to be retired)
The voicemail feature that automatically activates an out-of-office greeting based on an out-of-office event in Outlook calendar will be retired.
This decision is driven by Microsoft commitment to strengthen customer data protection. In addition, retiring this feature will help reduce costs, as it has a significant environmental footprint and relatively low usage.
[When will this happen:]
We will be rolling out this change beginning in early June 2024 and expect to complete by early August 2024.
