Remove comfort noise
It seems like Microsoft Teams has a comfort noise: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfort_noise , at least on the Windows Desktop Client - please give us an option to disable it or remove it completely.
Can confirm this happens on macOS as well...
With all other participants muted, to remove "comfort noise" I have to leave the meeting, and when I re-join, my muted participants are silent. Once a participant un-mutes themself the "comfort noise" is back.
If that is possible, surely we could get a manual toggle to switch "comfort noise" on/off.
I'm sure it serves a purpose for some, but I'd like to turn it OFF.

I also vote for an option to toggle off comfort noise. Personally, it's disorienting and causes me to remove my in-ears when it bothers me too much.
I have this same problem and I've confirmed it is coming from teams as no other apps have noise. It happens when I'm in a teams call/meeting and everyone is muted after someone has spoken. Upon first connecting to a call I don't notice any noise, it's only after someone speaks.
Removing might be a bit harsh. Having it configured, either by client or admin, would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Teams for school and have considered switching back to zoom. I don't like it and it's very irritating.
This is very annoying. It only happens on and off, but when that buzzing is there, it is very annoying. I have everyone muted and it is still going. Fix it!
Happens with a headset and when I use my laptop speakers. Windows 10 PC

Still an issue in my org as well. Can confirm this happens on both the iOS app and Windows desktop client. Can reproduce by joining a meeting, having someone speak, then muting all. There is an audible background white noise. It goes away as soon as you leave and come back. But the white noise comes back as soon as someone speaks.
