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.

Aaargh! 🙉 Ear-damage-lawsuit in the making, lol! Using HP Elitebook running Windows 10 (19041.630) and Bose Quietcomfort 35II connected via bluetooth.
Volume is automatically set to 100% when a new call or meeting is initiated. Only way to decrease volume is buy opening "Setting for app volume / unit" and decrease volume to a more pleasant 4-5%... Very annoying since I have a couple of meetings per day.
Love teams as an app, not loving this "feature" as much... 🙏🙏
How is this still not fixed?

It's really incredible that, all this time later and with work-from-home being so prominent, Microsoft still hasn't seen this issue as significant enough to warrant a fix. Every other program I've ever used allows for volume to be controlled in the same way, so why can't Microsoft get it right the first time - let alone fix it within an even remotely reasonable timeframe?
Fuck off commented
Every time i join a meeting it blasts to ******* MAX VOLUME! I AM GETTING EAR DAMAGE! Please fix this. Please. Please. What a flaming pile of ****. Every time i join a meeting i have to go to
Open volume settings > scroll right > set volume to 5 percent. Then, next time i join a meeting its blasts to 100! It hurts!!!!
Listening to music at 6% global volume with headphone.
Connecting to a call increase the global volume to 20%.
Windows 10 v1909
Teams 1.3.00.28779 (64 bits) (updated october 28th 2020)
Still getting blasted with bluetooth headphones. Yes, you can go into advanced sound settings, but need to do it every time. Really awkward when having to switch from meeting to meeting (since we have no breakout rooms).

Just got my ears hurt ;(

My ears are ringing nonstop from this bug Microsoft has refused to fix for years.

This happened to me today.
I was listening to music on the computer with headphones on.
Someone makes a Teams call to me and the music volume is increased to dangerous levels.
Microsoft has known about it since at least May 7, 2018.
That's two and a half years, and Microsoft still thinks it's a good idea to destroy my ears.
Webex resets to 100% volume at start of every meeting
Teams starts at max volume even if adjusted the volume before the meeting starts. I worry about my daughter's ears since even though i adjust the volume for one meeting the volume starts on max settings for hear next class. Please fix these issues
1. Volume controls in windows shoul propagate into Teams app. I should be able to use my shortcut volume buttons.
2. Disable volume level changes when Teams starts. Keep the volume level as it is set in Windows.
volume reset on every meeting, which cannot be adjusted via multimedia key's
master volume control. It's really annoying to be honest
Teams still require going to System sound setting--> advanced settings and adjusting Teams volume instances every single time.
it won't remember the application volume setting. so the next call, it blasts back up to 100%. I can hear the conversation from my earbud 1ft away from my ear. I have to go into advanced system settings for every single call/meeting.
this is a class action suit waiting to happen for all the ear damage it might be producing.
webex, zoom, skype all work fine. this is absolutely rediculous.
I have exactly the same issue. We cannot hear each other in Teams calls, which is damaging our business! I have tried reinstalling the drivers, tried telling sound settings to 'do nothing' for communications, checked all other settings. Can Microsoft please fix this urgently? No matter what I do, as soon as a videocall starts in Teams app, my whole system sound drops to 20%.

Teams arbitrarily sets mic volume to 0 and does not allow changing it. This is an unacceptable feature, as an adult, I insist on controlling my mic volume and automatic volume adjustment MUST be a setting that can be switched on/off by users.
Volume control within the app must be added. I have inner ear issues and the volume of MS Teams is speeding up the processing of losing my hearing. This is inexcusable.
W P commented
Yep, still happening. Since my comfortable volume is around 6-8%, the automatic adjustment to 20% is over TWICE the level I can tolerate.
Geordie Matthews commented
2020-09-11 and I'm now having this issue rear its ugly head again. While the volumes for Teams remains at the preset 25%, each time a call comes in and the call window opens, it has a separate entry in Volume Mixer and is set to 100% of device volume.
I have to ask people to refrain from speaking so I can turn the volume down. This is not a good look for a business!
This is still a serious issue that needs to be fixed ASAP. I have my system volume turned down to 1 which is directly linked to Teams (and many other apps). As this volume control is as low as it can go by the system and is still too loud, this is a health and safety problem. Is it going to take getting a lawyer involved to get you all to take this seriously and to do something about this? I could use a few million in my bank account...
Something is really still broken here. And yes, guys & gals at Microsoft, we understand you have a shitload of work to do. But: this issue persists since ******* 2018 in some way or the other. FIX this - please please please, FIX THIS!
When I use Settings / Sound / App & Device / Jabra Biz 2300 / Main loudness --> I can move the knob but the loudness does NOT change!
When I use the Microsoft Teams knob, the loudness of teams changes. Why is it not changing when using the main loudness knob????
