Teams connecting sound controlled by play / pause button
I had an incoming Teams call. Using the play / pause keyboard button, I paused music from Pandora.com in Google Chrome and took the call. Afterwards, I pressed the button to resume music, but instead, it was controlling the Teams sound for incoming calls. I could pause and restarted the sound.
I don't know the exact conditions to reproduce this, but it was so strange I had to share it. Details about my configuration:
- Teams 1.3.00.28778
- Google Chrome, Version 86.0.4240.183 (Official Build) (x86_64)
- macOS 10.15.7 (19H15)
- Apple Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad

I'm having the same problem and it's is really annoying me now. Everytime a call comes in and I would like to pause Spotify or Apple Music I surpress the ringing-sound. After the call, when I would like my music to play again by hitting the "play" key, the Teams Ringtone appears.

This has happened for me two for at least a week or two. Usually after a teams call ends, I press my keyboard's play button to resume Spotify, but it also turns on teams call notification sound. I'm using the desktop app, Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.30866 (64-bit).
I can reproduce this every time. If I receive a Teams call, my music pauses but Teams is the last thing to generate a sound. So, when I press play/pause again, it's playing the most recently used sound, and not my Music app. You can tell by the order of apps if you enable Now Playing in your menu bar and click on that.
This happens quite frequently for me and it happens every time I have the microsoft teams window in focus.
