After Windows 11 upgrade Bluetooth audio not working only with teams

Occasional Visitor

After upgrading to Windows 11, My Bluetooth headphones work great. However, when I open or go to a Teams meeting the headphones drop out. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Teams, same issue. I have tried troubleshooting sound, same issue. Everything worked perfect in Windows10.

Same situation.  Any bluetooth audio device will drop out upon making a teams call or joining a teams meeting.  Fun times!  I've spent probably 8 hours of reading/troubleshooting with no results.

Same issue, only way to get it to work over bluetooth is to use the mic and speakers on my bluetooth headphones, which reduces quality. What I want to do is use a different microphone with the bluetooth headphones as the speaker, but that does not work.
Hello, I got this message, the Open Form action was cancelled, somebody can help me with this??
Same here, been struggling with this on and off since November.

@nathanjfield This did not work for me with my JBL bluetooth speaker, but thanks for the suggestion. 

Thank you for this! This totally resolved my issue!


After doing a little testing, I found that the bluetooth speaker problem is related to the desktop version of Teams.  When I logged on to Teams through the web at There was no problem with the speaker.  I suspect that the desktop app problem will resolve with the next Teams update. (fingers crossed). 

@nathanjfieldyour post gave me some hope, since I already returned my headset to service and got a replacement. But when I tried this fix, I lost the possibility of selecting and using my headset in web Teams. I hope there will be some other solution soon.

Actually, on my side so far, I faced this issue of dropping headset during the Teams call only in web/Chrome Teams.
The issue is with the desktop version. The web version is fine. I am hoping they’ll put out a patch in the next update.
