Move the ring back from the desktop speakers to the the headset
When calling another Teams user the "Skypish" ring back comes out thru the desktop speakers and not the headset. I typically run my desktop muted and it is annoying there is no ring back in that case. Even with the speakers on it's annoying that the ring back could disturb a coworker.
Please implement choice of selecting default device (onboard/external speakers), and/or default communications device (headset) for call progress tone/ringback.
Having call progress/ringback coming out of speakers instead of headset in an office is very distracting for users.
Alternative is set headset as the default device in windows sound settings, but then secondary ringer is affected for inbound ringing and users have to wear their headset all day to hear inbound ringing or notifications
@andy below is what I have experienced also.
I have a UC Headset for all Voice communications = Default Communications Device
I have external speakers for loudly jamming to music = Default Device
Sometimes it scares the **** out of me when I place a call on Teams... because I forgot how loud I was listening to music and that subwoofer booms with each ringback :(
Just to add my experience;
When placing an outbound call, the ringing tone (aka ring back) plays out through the device configured in Windows > Sound > Playback as the 'Default Device' and NOT the 'Default Communications Device'.
Note: Inbound calls ring in the 'Default Communications Device'
My setup is as follows (I have 2 headsets plugged in);
Windows 'Default Communications Device': UC Headset for calls
Windows 'Default Device': Music headset
The outbound call ringing tone (aka ring back) should play out through the Windows 'Default Communications Device'.

The OP it's referring to a call progress tone (aka ringback). Not an incoming call alert ;)

Ideally it should also be possible to set a different ringtone for each device, so that (say) the speaker version is louder to overcome a noisy working environment.

The ring must be configurable to sound on either device, both or neither.
