Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.
If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to email@example.com.

Let's be honest here, the status in teams is just nuts. It bares no relation to reality whatsoever. Please go back to drawing board and start again.
Having moved from Skype for business, I expect and my colleagues expect the status to be my status. From Teams help: “Note that Teams will automatically set your status from Available to Away when the Teams app is in the background.”
No, No, No. That is madness, of course the app is in the background most of the day; we're all doing work.
We are currently testing the ‘hard audio mute’ feature internally. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
