Ability to check call quality ahead of calls/meetings
Skype for Business has a way to check your call quality so you can hear how you sound. Teams really needs this as well. I've had a few calls where I can hear the audience clearly, however they say my audio quality is poor.
I'd like the ability check and see how I sound before I join a Teams meeting or make a call.
This request is still on the backlog.

Ridiculous that this feature doesn't exist. It is standard for usability... being able to test your equipment before a big important meeting. We waste 5 or more minutes at the start of EVERY meeting telling people we can't hear them. It not only wastes time of UMPTEEN people being paid expensive salaries, it's also annoying and makes people hate the technology. Let's add up the cost in real salary AND the cost to reputation of Micro$oft.

I really TRY to use MS Teams over S4B as much as I can. But I very often get (despite my device default setting should be ok) the result that the peer I call cannot hear me.
I have stopped using teams for calls now since I can't really figure out why it won't work when there is no option to test it properly.
Would much appreciate this (of course would appreciate it just working more but the settings look right)
anything new on this ? We are starting to test this in our environment and issue with audio will hold us back from using it.

Thank you Warren for keeping us in the loop: 9 september 2018
This request is still on the backlog. How about now?

quicker implementation would be good
Was excited to see this feature in Office 365. First connection and echo from both parties. Switched to SfB and no echo. It worked without a problem. Whatever SfB does to co edition audio Teams should do. Teams looks like superior groupware but doesnt allow the group to communicate. Fundamental fail. Please fix MS.

We have moved away from Teams for meetings because this does not exist. The first few minutes of our meetings are generally spent trying to get audio working with the whole team.
This is an essential feature which should be implemented asap.

If the audio was better (and easier to manage/test/change on the fly) this would probably be the go to online meeting for us. As it is we are still using Hangouts for daily meetings.
Any further update on this?

We would realy appreciate this feature. It would be verry usefull to share some kind of test link to partners that don't use teams. Like this they can test their hardware before actualy joining a call/meeting.

Endpoint device and audio/video quality is key for user adoption. Test audio/video before calls and meeting help a lot.
yes, chat is usually not hassle and not real time, but only be able to "test" audio during an actual call is a problem
Microsoft should provide a synthetic meeting so users can test hardware and config prior to their first meeting.create a test meeting.

There doesn't seem to be a way to test audio within Teams. This would be a helpful addition to test input as well as playback before a meeting.
