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.

sitting in one office with another participant of the meeting sounds like sitting in a cave...
This is very needed.
Very anoying in team meetings i want to put the volume of the person in the same office at 0%.

How the ... is this still not a thing. Come on MS

SERIOUSLY. We have 10 active participants in a meeting at once, and we consistently talk over two of the users who have softer voices because we simply don't know they are talking.
Discord has had this for years.
Would help tremendously with meetings that have participants remote as well as on site
This feature would also help in hybrid meeting situations where some people are in the same room as oneself. These people's volume could be reduced to zero, so that one would not hear their voice a second time via headphones, while people working remote would still get the benefit of everyone using his/her own microphone and camera.
DEAR GOD PLEASE ADD THIS.. THE KEYBOARD NOISE OF SOME PEOPLE!! HAVE MERCY!

Yes, I agree 100% -- being able to adjust individual participants' volume would be very helpful.

Discord has it, please give to us!

This seems like such an obvious feature and would make a great addition!
Tyler Bible commented
This is needed, explicitly when you conference call!

I've asked people individually to adjust their mic volume - many don't know how to do it. (And on MacOS Teams seems to auto-adjust microphone volume incorrectly.)

Not only having screamers and whisperers. The main advantage I would say is having the same meeting with people sharing the room (CORONA guidance). Hearing everything double with some time delay is quite annoying. So this basic feature is REALLY essentiell.

This would make long meetings so much more bearable. I can be on Discord calls with 10+ people for hours because I can adjust each user's volume level to not be offensively loud. On Teams, a single user with a bad mic or who is way louder than the others can make a call unbearable.

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.
Steve J commented
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.
