Since the update during the week of May 7, 2018, every time I join a meeting, my system volume gets adjusted to be extremely high, which is highly uncomfortable with headphones.
Previously, the volume wasn't adjusted at all. Please restore it to this state.
The global volume automatically increasing to 20 is now fixed. If you are changing the Teams app volume you may still have an issue.
Thanks for your feedback. Please let us know if you are still having issues.
Why does Teams insist on having - and automatically setting - its own volume slider?? Why not simply trust that users can control their OWN volume settings using the system volume control that's been there in one form or another for more than 20 years? I see almost no benefits, but the problems of this unusual decision are many: keyboard/hotkey volume controls don't work for Teams calls, neither does the task bar volume slider, many people wonder why they can't control the volume of calls, the level that Teams sets at the start of every call doesn't suit every person or hardware configuration, the *actual* volume slider is hidden behind a couple of clicks in Device Settings, instead of being visible to the user on the call (!!). Please just use the system volume level, or at LEAST show the volume slider somewhere prominent on the call.
And yes, I'm still having issues.

Ho to stop this??? Stop the volume increase! Do this immediately! Unbelievable! Such a shame for MS!
Using a usb headset and the issue still remains, each meeting or call i join the volume increases to 20% instead of the normal 2%. With increase of digital meetings the past year and a half this is now beyond annoying..Can we have a proper fix for this? Or at least a toggle that disables teams from adjusting volumes.

I have the abbot to control sound on my laptop but for some reason my my iPad it goes to 100 percent and doesn’t let me change the volume

Can Teams just add a toggle button to disable ALL sounds / microphone adjustments? The only app for which my voice sounds terrible is Teams. All it does is make it worse.
I have issues with
- I need my volume to be at 2%, Teams auto adjust it when a call starts which is VERY uncomfortable for my ears
- I use a Yeti Nano and whenever I enable voice adjustments to make it sound crisp, it sounds like **** in teams. Even when I disable all that can be disabled in teams (noise reduction, etc). I'm forced to configure my Nano to not make any adjustments and it sounds "acceptable" enough to be usable.
Even at lowest volume level possible (set via teams slider) it is still way too loud.

Still having this issue!

This is still happening! Please correct soon. I'll correct the volume for one call, hang up, get on another and the volume is back 100 again and I have to reset the volume. I'm using the Jabra headset.
Can we please have this fixed? I keep having to lower the volume each time I start a call or meeting.

Still broken. Join a call and volume goes to 100% every time. Set volume to 50% as I'd like and it's fine. Get another call thirty seconds later and Teams forcefully sets my headset volume back to 100% so I have to adjust the volume back to 50% again.
This is absurd.

Still not fixed...Spent hours on the phone w company tech support - updating drivers, troubleshooting...no luck
This really needs to be fixed. Wasting a lot of time and energy going to settings EVERY time I get a call - which is MANY times per day. Microsoft - DO YOUR JOB.
this is not fixed FYI - it changes on my usb headphones every single day - 20%. I need it at like 5%

Same problem on iOS 14.4 - volume goes to max and doesn't respond to the device volume controls

I too still have the problem, it doesnt go up to 20, it goes up to 100% , I adjust manually every sound so it doesnt kill my ears, I have a setup that I like, and every time I get a call, it resets and I have to adjust it again, and since I get call often.. this is kinda killing me haha

sometime MS-Teams auto switches the audio input device...
I do have an external soundcard with a noisegate.. So there is silence when not speaking (on purpose) .. Now the auto device switching in MS-Teams jumps to my headphone as an input device (MAC-OS)
--> Please allow user to set the devices for In- and Output and stop these auto adjustments and auto device chances...

Still an issue. Why is teams adjusting the volume at all. If I join a call and its too quiet I will turn it up. Teams doesn't need to guess a volume for me.
Teams somehow ignores the master volume. No matter what my master volume is set to, I get my ears destroyed when I join a meeting. Even once started, changing the master volume does nothing. I have to go to 'App volume and device preferences' and turn down the Teams App.

I have the exact same problem.
I`m using blue tooth headphones.
I have the same issue 'my system volume gets adjusted to be extremely high, which is highly uncomfortable with headphones'
