Ability to turn off noise cancellation
Ability to turn off noise cancellation if wanted.
When trying to use Teams in a hybrid teaching environment (both in-person and online at same time) the noise cancellation feature filters out audio in Teams users from videos being played through the classroom speakers. This results in remote students not being able to hear the content.

I've got a really good software denoiser, RNNoise, so in my case additional denoiser from Teams is completely useless!
Yes, please give us the ability to switch off any noise cancellation / modification in conference. Like the auditorium mode in Live Events. Thanks!

We need to be able to turn off noise cancellation! During singing lessons I need to be able to hear every breath and soft sound in the room.
It would be awesome to be able to toggle off the "Noise Cancellation". It seems like this feature would not be difficult to enable especially for Teams Live Events (already has "Auditorium mode") and it would greatly improve the ability to produce high quality presentations.
Zoom allows you to use "True Audio" so we are able to audio equipment to play music, videos, etc. without sacrificing audio quality.
We need a way to turn this "feature" off. I feed teams from more than just a microphone and teams kills any input within a few seconds.
This is not a helpful "feature" Microsoft unless it is able to be turned off!!
I agree, I can not hear my own voice with the new update. Instead of cancelling background noises, it cancels out my voice instead....

A previous comment described noise suppression as being aggressive and that's a huge understatement! As desktop support at a Fortune 500 for the number of users we have that essentially corrupt every meeting they've joined since this "improvement" was added--muted or not-- it would be fantastic to be able to toggle noise suppression off! Thanks, but no thanks!
When I am using Teams and I type, or my fan kicks in my VOICE gets cancelled instead of the background sounds.
Being able to turn of noise suppression would resolve this

We're a music company and would love to use this to demo our products... however, with the in build aggressive noise reduction and limiting, as well as being constrained to mono audio, this is a very poor solution for us.
