Ever since the MacOS Sonoma update, or possibly even earlier, using ANY calling apps via remote desktop is impossible not work, due to the fact that microphones -any microphones- will stop working 1-5 seconds after starting a call. It seems to work in the Settings app, until you try to use it any app (I've tried) Teams and Skype), then it stops picking up any audio

For those of you that are comfortable with beta software, you need to do the following if you want to test this fix:

  • Download Microsoft Remote Desktop Beta for Mac version 10.9.5 here: https://aka.ms/rdmacbeta
  • Unzip the downloaded file and copy to your applications folder (yes, it runs separately from the GA version of Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac).
  • Run the beta version and recreate the RDP PC and/or Workspace profiles you have in the GA version.
  • Connect, test, and post your results in this thread.

If you are not interested in beta software, you will have to wait until 10.9.5 is released as GA.
