Media keys affecting Teams web app.
I am listening to music.
I have teams opened in a Chrome tab.
I press pause/play to stop the music playback.
I expect music to stop playing.
Actually music continues to play and Teams web app is starting to call whoever is on my teams tab.
I would like the Teams app to be unaffected by media keys or at least have an option to toggle their interactivity.
Really annoying to me as well, for quite a while now.

Very annoying indeed. Don't understand why Teams issues always take ages for Microsoft to resolve... every issue I have with Teams results into an unsolved UserVoice page..
This issue is not web app specific. Occurs on my computer with the desktop app.

Same issue. We're tired of it as well. Help me Obi-Wan. (WizzzOzzz permission fix did not work for me)
I'm using the desktop app on Win 10 and I'm having the same issue with multimedia buttons, very annoying indeed! It would be nice if you covered the basics before implementing new features, but I guess that's Microsoft for me!
I am having this issue as well, started a few months ago.
After each call I need to manually go back into my music player to hit play otherwise it will just play the teams calling sound. Once I start the music again, then the media keys work as expected till the next call.

There is a workaround! Scroll down to WizzzOzzz comment! (Turn off MIDI permission in Teams settings)
UPDATE: Issue came back after some time... (Option is still disabled)

This happens to me too in the Desktop App on MacOS

This is a deal breaker. I cannot use Teams because whenever I press the pause button to pause my music it starts playing the Teams call sound effect... Very annoying!
Thank you Wizzzozzz!
As of Jan 5th, 2021 this issue is still present with the Teams client in Windows 10. This is extremely annoying...
This just started for me today (I just updated Teams) on Ubuntu 20 using their app. This is very annoying and stupid. Fix this BUG please. Play/Pause should not call anyone. The app should not take over my media buttons.
UPDATED: I can confirm that turning off MIDI worked for me but you must quit and then re-open the app.
Same issue from the actual app (not a chrome tab). I tried the fix Wizzzozzz listed on 12/15 but did not fix. Please fix this.

A few comments down on Dec 15ht WizzzOzzz shared that you solve this by going to settings -> permission and then toggling off the MIDI device option. I had to close teams and start it back up to have the setting change stick but that solved my issue. So annoying. Microsoft you need to figure out a better way to manage keyboard input when the MIDI device permission is enabled.
What a bad idea to use media keys to do unrelated things on Teams... Please remove this useless and very annoying "feature" asap.
Same with Mac OS Catilina dan the Teams Desktop app
macOS Mojave desktop user here: it is super annoying!!! please fix this MS!!!
Same issue here!
what adds up on top of the annoying ringtone , is that the panel that appears when this sh*t happens, takes 10 or 15 seconds to disappear ! one cannot hide it ! it takes part of the screen !
Oh My God ! this is really driving me MAD !
