If I use keyboard media keys to pause music when I receive a call in teams, the notification sound doesn't seem to get dismissed when I answer the call. So, when I later press play, it also resumes playing the teams call sound over my music. 

 

It does seem to go away on it's own eventually, but it's kind of annoying when I want to listen to music!

Hi @graemec5

Known issue, as raised here on uservoice

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39956326-media-keys-affecting-...

If you go to that uservoice, a few comments down you should see a solution to this: go to avatar > settings > permissions > turn off midi device. People have reported that it has solved it for them

Hope this resolves and answers your question

Best, Chris
