Improve audio notifications
VOLUME: The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.
UNIQUE SOUNDS FOR CALLS VS CHATS/MESSAGES: Right now sounds are all or nothing. This is not good. For example, you may want to have sound for Calls but not for chat or messages. There is a difference when you need to hear that someone is calling you – versus getting the constant bing/bing/bing on message chat.
UNIQUE SOUND FOR PRIVATE CHAT: It would be nice to have different sounds for private chat and notifications, so that its easy to know what's coming in without having to look at it.
The team has updated the default sound for Teams notifications so it is more noticeable. We are in final testing, with a goal to release the new sound by the end of this quarter.
Agree here, we can't fully adopt teams as we could.
We miss many sharing information for the lack of realtime notifications in mobile, desktop app and web... it's a must! thanks
Agreed our teams are missing messages because of the lack of notifications

Is there another version available with better audiable alerts/notifications?
Brian Salzer commented
We would like to see this updated, as well. It's something Teams doesn't do all that well that Slack does very well. Slack puts everything you needed to see right in front of your nose at all times. Our team is constantly missing messages from the Teams tab, which is where a lot of the morale boosting updates are posted, ultimately negatively impacting culture.
Hear a tiny message ping. Look in Teams and see under Chat a missed call. There was NO ringing sound or dialog.
Please make calls ring.
Our team would like to see mobile app notifications for the teams tab as well.
let us change sound on the PC and Mobile Iphone apps to differentiate the alerts from existing apps installed vs a default.

Notifications are lacking, the sound is to low, have more options. Skype lights up when I get notifications this would be a good addition.
It would be nice if I could change the sound of all notifications
The sound notification is so low you can not hear it, I had to turn my sound up real high and finally heard something that sounded like my computer burped or something. There needs to be an option where you can define the sound like in Skype. So we know which sound belongs to the different applications.
This is a show stopper! The notifications are terrible for this application. I use a Mac and I would like to be able to configure the type and volume of Alert/Notification.
It would be nice to have notifications on the teams tab. A group of us at work have been using the teams section to communicate using it as a group chat platform. However, from what we have seen, the program (installed or via the web) does not notify us to new messages. It would be nice to get that functionality.

There is no new message notification sound due to which a lot of messages goes un-noticed. please add a notification sound or pop-up message window on receiving new message

The current sound for iPhone is too aggressive and a bit outdated. I would like to choose a softer sound.
I am getting these as well. Very frustrating.

I have my notifications sounds off but am getting sounds for every alert and even getting sounds when there isn't an alert.
Agree with all other comments. Wanted to switch from Slack but with the current state of the notifications (lack of sound, lack of tone changes to differentiate users) it's just not usable for our company at this juncture.

In addition - on commercial skype you could actually set sound notification channel or chat by channel or chat. Some things you want the bing - others it is just an irritant.

While using the browser-based app today I noticed that the Notification Settings window has a setting for "Sound", however changes to this seem to have no effect on whether I receive sounds or not. So I assume that not receiving sound is a bug.
I am on Linux, a Debian-based distribution. But I doubt that should have much of an effect. The important part is maybe that I am on Google Chrome perhaps.
