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.
Notification sound not work / Desktop version

With all the different apps on the phone being able to customize the notification sound is important to ensure that my team can reply quickly.

The notification could be louder. I could see that the notification sounds in Microsoft Teams are very less that I could not hear it even with 100 % volumes in my laptop. I had tested with different laptops as well. Also, option for "display alert" for the incoming messages and reply would be great to have. It can be optional to be enabled from Notifications or settings.

Yeah it is really quite hard to tell if I have gotten a notification as I can't hear over audio from other apps
Would be nice to be able to adjust this volume independently or change the type of notification. I had some users who cannot hear the low tone that currently is being used.
The volume of notifications is too low. Increase the volume
Allow choices of sounds for alerts on the desktop app
