Feature: Add ability to adjust call audio volume
In Skype I could adjust the volume on the application level. This isn't possible in teams
Still a problem. Windows Mixer volume at 1. Teams blasting my eardrums...
Having to use Teams every freaking Monday for a recurring meaning is a APPAULING. WHY? Because I can't adjust the volume whatsoever. Not surprising that other people complain about the same thing.
These are the reasons why I hate Microsoft so much. Because they are ******* backward, out of touch with their customers and 100% bent on not doing anything that makes sense.

Please add the option to disable automatic gain control in Teams.

I've noticed the volume goes up and down during a conversation I thought it was me cause I'm 80 % deaf in one ear I always thought it was me.
Volume keep changing causing meeting to be cancel. Please add this feature in.
In my case, my wireless earphones are present in Windows in two ways.. a normal stereo setting, and a wireless AV headset setting. I just received my first Teams call, and it was really loud indeed. I tried not to panic and concentrate on the conversation, meanwhile lowering the volume.
I think the playing device was still the 'stereo' version, while Teams was configured to use the Hands Free AG audio thingy.
I just found out that in the mixer, you can switch and configure the devices on the left side, without actually switching the currently used device. So next time, before answering the call, I should probably open the mixer like crazy. Hope this helps anyone else.
Hope this helps commented
When in a call:
More Actions > Show device settings > Speaker
2 years and nothing done? - Microsoft. Same issue with the default snooze in outlook.
The suggestion below involving More Actions / Device Settings is not really a solution. All it does is set the master volume for the playback device just like clicking on the icon in Windows. Except it requires more clicks.
The mixer suggestion still works, but like this topic says, this needs to be surfaced in some easy to get at way in Teams.
A big problem in Macbook version of TEAM as well. Without realizing it, when I speak, other participants in the conversation were getting too high volume. A number of times, they had to mute me in order to continue with the conversation. The input volume and sensitivity always goes up generating too loud sound in a few seconds.

With Microsoft I feel me like I'm a beta tester!!!
Please check the basic requirements before bringing the product on the market... All our customers get angry about the volume control ******* their eardrum out!
The workaround with audio mixer just works for one moment until Teams changes everything back.

ANSWER TO ISSUE: Had the same problem as everyone else but just now found the answer. Click on ... for More Actions. Click on Device Settings. You should see volume controls in the screen presented. Now the question is how has this question string been allowed to go on for so long without this answer being posted?

Same issue. Using USB headset. All application volume is perfect but Teams is LOUD and lowering the app volume will not "stick" and just increases on its own.

Have the same issue. Connected a Bluetooth headset to my laptop, it works fine everywhere except Teams. The volume control in Windows has no effect on the volume of the Teams call. Even if I turn off the volume on my laptop, it still produces the sound. It is so loud that I cannot use the headset at all.

There is a way to do it,Right click on the volume icon (in the right bottom corner),
Click on Open Volume Mixer,
It will display all the media apps that are currently running on your system (ex: vlc, teams etc. etc.)
Increase/decrease the volume of these apps individually.
It feels so stupid that this most basic of functions needs to be requested at all, let alone that it's apparently fallen on deaf ears for so long at Microsoft (pardon the pun, couldn't help myself)
Volume control has only been a standard feature of ANY audio producing program since basically it was invented. I don't understand how you've gone backwards on something so fundamental.

The fact that teams ignores all system settings is borderline pathetic. I was at a site today to troubleshoot a client wanting to use teams and I sat and watched the slider flip all over the place for the microphone level. All exclusive control and all auto gain adjustments had been turned off.
It's embarrassing that Microsoft is plainly beta testing with its business customers. You guys don't even have to really add anything to the bloody program just make it follow the settings defined in Microsoft's own freaking OS. Today as an IT professional I had to look a client in the eye and say sorry, maybe don't use teams cause there's not a fix. It's not what they wanted to hear I can tell you.
