    As stated below, using the Teams client in Windows, here's an image of how to do it by clicking the speaker button in Device Settings.
    Also, it can be done using the Volume Mixer, but you need to see if Teams is listed more than once.

    *Microsoft* it sure would be nice to have this option on the main meeting window or a hotkey.

    There are many comments in UserVoice regarding the user experience but they don't get many votes. I suspect that viewers don't understand the difference between the Teams app and Teams Live events and thus don't find this forum.
    Microsoft, please keep in mind that the audience experience is multitudes more important than adding small features for the presenters. For me, live events are often long presentations where I may not need to be glued to the screen the entire time. While sitting through the event it would be nice if I could multitask and get other things done on my mobile device (Android for me). I can't even turn off the screen during a call to reduce battery drain. Why can't the Live Events have the same features as the Teams app?

    Very frustrating that I can't switch apps or even turn off my screen when attending a Teams live event on Android.

    FYI: I just tried using markdown as specified in this help file. At first it didn't work and I was going to give up. Then I tried a second time and it worked. I'm not sure how I typed it differently but I'm happily surprised to see *some* markdown supported.

    I want to add that this only happens in large Teams meetings that are set up with a host, not the typical pier-to-pier ad-hoc meetings. Is there a better way to differentiate the two types of meetings?

    When I'm in a long corporate Teams call on my Android device it would be nice if I could switch away from the app and still listen while using another app. Please make a modification so Teams does not disconnect from the meeting when switching to another app. I would also like to be able to let the screen shut off but still listen to the meeting to save battery life.

    In Teams v1.3.00.19173 (7/29/20) meeting controls have been moved to the top of the meeting screen. Yeah!

    Without being able to reposition the control bar I can't see the name of someone on the screen (see attached image). When the control bar hides, so do the names. I'd like to be able to drag this control bar or have the option to make it appear outside the range of the shared area.

    @Kim, not the same issue. This issue is for opening Teams from a hyperlink (like in Outlook). The issue you referred to is for opening documents within Teams, like Excel, Word, etc.
