🎶 Let the music play
When I join a meeting, all other sounds on my machine are muted, including Spotify. Please give us an option to allow other system sounds to continue playing, perhaps with lower audio.

This feature really needs to be configurable, its like Microsoft assumes we are so dumb we cant figure out ourselves how to keep listening meeting with lowered music in background.

I had the same problem and located the reason for my case;
Just like most of you, I have already set the communication tab at the sound control panel to "do nothing". Yet this didn't help by itself. I also found out that Teams, somehow changed the name of the sound device that I use. When I checked the "Select playback device" (you can find it with one click to volume icon in the taskbar) there were 2 similar named versions of the sound device I use. I simply chose the correct device in this menu. I just wanted to share my 2 cents, hope this helps.

I am experiencing this with the Spotify desktop application.
Same issue. It's very frustrating and there seems to be no way to bypass it.

All ideas circle around the same feature - make it configurable to: turn off / lower volume / keep on playing - music when user joins a call
