When I join meetings, I make sure that Mute is set to "Off" - yet I am still muted when I join a call. This is infuriating as it means I inevitably start speaking and no one can hear me. Seems to be a bug with the UI not matching what the application is actually doing.
After so many people join (6 i think) Teams auto mutes people when joining since more often than not people join with tons of background noise. I prefer it this way tbh. It shouldn't be happening on smaller calls/meeting thou.

@Chris WebbThanks Chris - this kind of makes sense but I'd expect it to be more obvious, different behavior based on an arbitary number of people is confusing. I have a decent(ish) headset with noise cancellation and so thankfully I'm not one of "those people" :) I also prefer to use the Mute function on my headset rather than Teams, as this gives me a reminder that Mute is on if I forget start speaking. It would be great to see this more tightly integrated.
