Sound is too low and other sound problems
The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.
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.
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.
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.
Please make calls have a ringing sound, so I know a call is coming through.
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.
This item is still under review. I’ll keep following up with the feature team and sharing all your feedback.

Ability to turn off Chat send sounds
There are notification sounds when sending, receiving, other party reads, and other party beings typing. This, to me, is too many alerts. The sound on other party reading the message is especially annoying, as it prompts me to check my chat for new messages.
Ideally, notifications for each of these events should be configurable in settings. If that isn't possible, please at least remove the notification sound when other party reads the message - as there is not even a visual notification of this event.

Would like to hear a sound when someone sends a chat message. This is very useful for me when I have alot of windows open. Also nice to pick a sound or load a sound to be unique for chat messages.

Hi Thanks for adding the ability to follow a group, the only problem I can now see is with the notifications on the mobile app. When someone posts in the group i receive a notification but it only shows the last message that person added. It would be much better if the notification just took to the group to continue the conversation.
Could this be changed please.

As everyone said, notifications should be louder. Also, I would like to choose my own notification or at least give me a few choices.

Need the ability to have notifications "Push" to mobile for Team Channel Conversations.
Push notifications for teams.
Same issue and it's a "app killer". Makes it not usable on mobile (at least iOS) devices for calls.
Ring notification on iOS devices is not very audible even when the device volume is turned up all of the way.

I agree with this whole heartedly. I do not want to hear a little sound every time I send or receive a message.
Ben Smith commented
Yeah, notifications are really bad right now.
I don't even get the sound.
Yes please, right now it's either you get sounds for everything or nothing. I would like to see the option to have the sound alert me only when its something related to me like mentions, replies, etc.
This is my biggest annoyance - the chat sound is way too intrusive, but I want to hear calls coming in. Also turning sounds to 'Off' doesn't disable the chat sound if its set..
It would be nice to have a notification sound play when a new party joins the meeting. Could be beneficial during a screen sharing session.
Currently the only way to tell that a call is coming in is the top right icons and the audio. It's very easy to miss those cues if you don't have your headphones on and you have multiple monitors.
I would like to hear when calls come in, but would like to turn the sound off for notifications. It would be nice if there were a way to customize instead of all or nothing

It would also be nice if the banner could be set to stay on screen until I close it. Right now it stays up for 30 seconds or so, but if I'm away when I get the notification then I don't see it unless I check the app.
Please please make this a priority!! Allowing custom notification sounds *per conversation* and even *per person* would be the BEST!!! Please!!
This would be very useful. Right now I can't tell the difference between a notification from Work v.s. a notification from a friend. I need different sounds so that I know if I need to check my phone or ignore it :)
