Adjust the volume of individuals in a group call
Like discord I would like to adjust the volumes of each member in the call.
This is to adjust volume levels to the microphones they are using, or lower background noise from other participants.

Any chance this feature will be added. I'm often on calls where one user is way louder than all the others. If I adjust the global volume, I'm barely able to hear the other participants.
I stuck having to choose between having my eardrums broken or not earing most people on the call.

We need this. I am getting PTSD from my daily morning meeting where my boss' mic is SO LOUD.

Yes please develop this product; I am on Teams calls most days of the week the fluctuation in volume detracts from the quality of the meeting.
This feature should be a standard already!
At the moment i have to use teams at work, my colleagues are whisperers, screamers and everything in between.
For me, the only solution so far was using my old audio compressor (hardware, plugged between computer and headphones). It takes some wiring and adjusting to get it right, but at least it works somewhat decent.
Basically it reduces the volume difference between the quiet ones and the loud ones. You don't even need to adjust every participant individually, instead you kinda choose how quiet and how loud your audio output will get. Thus quiet ones get louder and loud ones become more quiet.
If you want to use my solution, try to get a cheap used audio compressor, preferably with 2in2out and the necessary cables.
There also are software compressors, however i cannot think of an easy way to make those work with teams.
I wish my company used discord just for this feature. Why any group voice application would ever release their product without this function is beyond me.
Edit: Holy, this topic was created in 2018?? How does this not have more votes?!

Yes I need this feature! Some participants have very loud background noise or some have loud microphones, then some are too quiet. being able to adjust volume up to 200% and volume down from 100% like in discord should be made available.

Suggestion: Buy Discord. Get them to tell you how they do it. Or Ventrillo. Or Teamspeak. I think the last voip software that lacked this feature was Roger Wilco, for pete's sake!
+1 It's almost 2021, how is this basic feature not integrated into Teams yet? Your competitors have you beat. This feature existed in Ventrillo YEARS ago.
Would be nice to have volume setting like Discord:
Everyone start at volume 100 and you can put someone at range of 0 or 200.
I talk with some quiet voiced people and its not their fault/microphone issue, I would like to hear them better without making whole program louder

PLEASE! There is a person on my team that refuses to turn down their mic gain and it causes my laptop speakers to rattle and my ears to bleed. PLEASEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! Save me from these headaches!
Please bring option to manage volume of each participant separately.
One speaks on top other under water.

Delightful to see this still hasn't been implemented
I'm not finding an answer yet when searching or in this thread. As of today, I'm still having trouble in Teams when one or two of the meeting participants are hard to hear, but all others are loud. I'm looking forward to an answer that allows me to adjust the volume on individuals.
I'm used to talk with people from various departments in my company, and the range of volume or audio quality vary a lot between them.
Agreed. This needs to happen as all types of devices are used to call in. Sometimes phone call-ins are way less crisp than application call-ins and increased volume for that individual is needed to hear them. This works wonders in Discord as others have mentioned.
This is a vital feature that is missing from Teams. It's a must have!
this shouldn't be so hard when even older programs like Ventrilo had it
Some folks are just way louder/quieter than others.
If their volumes can be auto-normalized, that'd be great! If not, though, please let us adjust each individual manually.

This would be really great as I'm deafening myself with boosting my system volume to accommodate the quietest participant! I have to work with headphones due to parenting and this is annoying to say the least!
