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.
Question is, who do we sue for ear damage? Employer or Microsoft? Or both?
This is a serious safety issue ignored by Microsoft! This should be fixed as an emergency; it should not be waiting here for Microsoft to get around to considering, and likely rejecting, the voice of their users.
Audio is still painfully loud.. Why does teams not follow system volume settings? Changing system volume has zero effect on teams volume. 2 full years, this has been a problem and not fixed!
TOO LOUD!!!!!!!! Everything is on minimum and sound is still TOO LOUD!
Please help me here. I have Tinnitus - urgent -urgent -urgent.
I dont have that problem with Skype FB or Webex

This is so annoying. Killing my ears.
Fix is not working here either. I am using my laptop to present a screen, with 0 volume, and it always goes up automatically. I route audio via my phone because it is more reliable than my windows laptop. This bug gets quite annoying after a while.
Same problem, my ears are hurt every phone call

This is not working. My mic volume will move up to 100%. I need teams to not adjust the mic sensitivity. At all.

Similar problem - when meetings are started, volume automatically resets at 100% regardless of prior settings.
Not working. When meeting are started - volume goes to 100%. Highly annoying.
April 2020, found this forum due to ongoing issue with Teams volume at 100%.
Lot's of clients below show ongoing issue as well.
It is not fixed at all ...

I think it is VERY important to have the ability to control volume PER PARTICIPANT .
i.e each user can define the volume they hear each other participants . In the current state some participant are very low while others are too high . actively changing the computer volume when every person is speaking is VERY FRUSTRATING .
Get this fixed! Where is the f***** problem?
Microsoft Teams is killing my ears! Skype and other Tools work way better.

System volume is set to 55% (using Razer Kraken 7.1 USB headphones) when Teams call it blows out way too loud. Changing Teams app volume alone does nothing. Hvae to change system volume to ~3% to keep ears safe and not cause damage. This then makes it so I can not hear anything else and have to turn system volume back up. You can see the never ending cycle of ear pain and annoyance.
Please make Teams app volume independent of the system volume like ever other app
When I make a test call the teams volume is set to maximum volume (jabra evolve 65 UC headset). This means I have to set the master volume to 18% so I don't blow my eardrums out. Sideeffect is that all other applications have low volume. Could be a microsoft bug or jabra bug?
Step 1: Start a call
Step 2: Recognize that the sound is too loud and adjust the setting
Step 3: Leave call
Step 4: Start a new call
Step 5: The previous setting is forgotten :-(
Still having this issue. Why doesn't Teams follow the system volume? I raise/lower the system volume and Teams is uneffected. My video call is still SUPER loud for no reason.

My entire team is remote now due to Corona Virus, so almost all of our audio communications is through Team calls now. The volume increase is very annoying, and alerts everyone in my family that I'm getting a call
I also have problems with the volume. Use headphones with AUX cable. Even with volume at 1%, the sound blows my ears off. :S
thanks for your efforts
Super annoying! Volume increases explosively during a call.
