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.
I agree - we want to move to Teams for chat, but in an office environment, this sound is way too soft.
Is there seriously not an update to this? Giving us an option to increase notification sounds would be beneficial to those who dont see the banner notifications.
YES PLEASE! This is incredibly important for orgs using this app for business.

I have just connect the Microsoft certified headsets Jabra Elite 65t and have got a Very High level of sound shock. There is no way to control the sound level in the Teams client for W10.
agree. I miss them if i don't hear them
Making notification louder will be helpful as well as having a longer sustained sound to assist individuals who are using this for customer services for work purposes and need to respond immediately. As stated above, having several options for sound would be a good fix to customize what is needed for each user.
My business unit just started using teams as a pilot for our entire corporation. I CANNOT BELIEVE this isn't an adjustable option. I see that Microsoft has been "reviewing" this issue for over 2 years which, for such a simple change, is unacceptable and tells me that they aren't planning on supporting teams quickly, or even at all. I'm going to call my boss today to let him know the other divisions don't need to move to this product.
Can someone please give me the name of MS Teams biggest competitor (discounting skype obviously)? That way I can let him know which software we should pilot next.
Please increase the volume and the length of time of the IM alert. It is very hard to hear, and the actual alert sound lasts for less than 1/2 of a second. It would be wonderful if the alert could repeat until the IM is answered as well. Thank you :-)

Sounds output for alerts, dialing sounds, ringing, etc. should go through same exact device as voice (mic and speaker settings).
Ringing and other notifications that go through the system device, maybe external speakers, can be loud and disturbing to others. All sounds should go through the same output/play device set under settings.
when someone chat hope that have sounds like skype or better sounds notification.

The OP's comment was in April 2017 and has been under review since Oct 2017. The last "Under Review" comment was in Sept 2018, but it's now Sept 2019. Please add a louder sound notification option! I think the community has waited long enough.
My old comment:
My team has thousands of users on Microsoft Teams and it's quite disappointing to see that this issue still has not been resolved. If you Bing/Google this topic, there are literal dozens of threads as old as 2017 discussing this issue. A simple old solution would be to replace the audio file with a louder version of the notification sound, but there is no such audio file that I could find.
Is anyone at Microsoft working on a fix? There are over 100 pages of people at the Microsoft Teams User Voice Community speaking out on this. I have my volume set to a full 100 and can barely hear the notification, while my other programs have become loud enough to jump scare me with every notification.

how do we change the volume of chat sounds
Kadeem Morgan commented
I hope you all are really looking at this issue. Also with making it louder, could you please make it a continuous beep until the chat notification has been closed? This is needed at my organization and for the members that work at home.
Chat notification sound is way too low. There is no way to turn it up. We need this feature.
I cannot hear chat msg notification sound. Please enable the changing of chat msg notification sounds - calling already has this option
This program needs to have an audible alert added when receiving messages. A banner and email are not sufficient and rarely visible when working on documents.
