    Hi @M - I see your comment below.
    On your Mac you need to choose 'Aggregate Device' as the output and then in Teams you choose 'Speaker Built In' - not Aggregate device.
    Once you have the aggregate device selected you will not have any control over the output but you can change back to 'Internal Speakers', increase the volume and then reselect 'Aggregate Device.'

    I hope the screenshots help you - in this example I have a plug-in Rode microphone.

    For those suggesting purchasing new software as a workaround - there really isn't any need. You have everything on your Mac already. If you see my post of November 17th (pasted below) I've described a fairly simple workaround that I've been using on an almost daily basis since March. It's not ideal but it works well enough.

    1: Go to "Audio Midi Setup" - included in every Mac.
    2: Bottom left - "+" - Create Aggregate Device.
    3: Choose 'Built in Output' and 'Built in Microphone' - or select the microphone you are using if you have a different microphone.
    4: In sound preferences on your Mac - choose 'Aggregate Device'
    5: In Teams - Audio Device=Custom Setup, Speaker=Built-In Output, Microphone= whichever microphone you are using.

    In use - When playing a video through PowerPoint participants will hear the video in the same way you do - the volume is best controlled through the actual video as using an aggregate device doesn't give you the normal range of controls.

    There is 'not too complex' workaround for non-techy folk. (I'm not techy and use this workaround....)

    1: Go to "Audio Midi Setup" - included in every Mac.
    2: Bottom left - "+" - Create Aggregate Device.
    3: Choose 'Built in Output' and 'Built in Microphone' - or select the microphone you are using if you have a different microphone.
    4: In sound preferences on your Mac - choose 'Aggregate Device'
    5: In Teams - Audio Device=Custom Setup, Speaker=Built-In Output, Microphone= whichever microphone you are using.

    In use - When playing a video through PowerPoint participants will hear the video in the same way you do - the volume is best controlled through the actual video as using an aggregate device doesn't give you the normal range of controls.

    I hope these instructions help someone - I'm not a tech person, just a user who found a way to do this. I didn't need any new software or any downloads.

    There are probably some details that you will want to try and adjust - I tested different things with a colleague until we found what worked.
