there are no obvious notifications in 'teams' .. you have to click in to 'teams' when you remember to do so, and then you can see the teams you are a part of.. if there is new conversation, it will be bolded... but again, you have to remember to check into teams. On 'Chat' it shows a notification so I am able to remember to check that - but am always behind in my team updates.
There needs to be some unity between the chats so I can remember or a better notification.

Is this resolved? I am facing the same issue. Each time when a message is posted on one of our Team group - I do not receive a notification for this. I have to go inside the team to check the messages.
Notification appears when there is a direct message sent..
Agreed! I would prefer for the default setting to be that I receive a notification anytime ANY post is made within a team, regardless of if I am directly mentioned or not. Then I can go into settings and opt out. Currently it seems I have to follow a channel individually, which took me months to find that option (the three dot options menu on the left sidebar shows a different set of options than the one in the top right when I select a certain channel, something I never realized). Now I have to remember each time I am added to a different team that I have to 'follow' that channel for notifications to show up in my activity. I do not necessarily mind having to do the extra steps, but I am not added to a new team very often, so I have not been great at remembering several months later that I need to follow the new team's channel. Thanks!

Is there a sollution for this already? Channel notification doesnt do anything when turned on. or am i doing something wrong?
Just tried teams out and couldn't use it for this very reason. In Slack a red dot appears on the taskbar icon which alerts you to new messages. No such interaction happens with teams.

Also, if you torn off sound on a chat, you won't get a notification on the Chat tab. So it needs more options I think, not only Sound on or off
Agreed. We have to create group chats with the whole company because otherwise people do not receive the notifications.
Yes we have this issue as well which has resulted in us moving back to the chat section instead of staying with teams.
Please model the chat notification settings for the teams Tab. Thanks
When you are on chat window, and anyone pings in the Teams, not getting notification for that
