So I downloaded Microsoft Teams this morning for some college registration stuff. Now that I am done with that, I looked into OBS and Discord to see what my microphone volume levels were doing, and it is incredibly quiet. It was not like this before installing Microsoft teams. Whenever I do a test call, the volume goes back to normal but then immediately goes back to nearly inaudible after the call ends. How do I fix this?

Hello @Jariahm9956   There was a similar submission in our Answers.Microsoft.com site recently - please review the solutions offered there (especially the last entry) and see if they help.  https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/education_ms/forum/all/microphone-very-quiet-on-teams/1dde9030-2...

 

Also, please check the Teams enabled device list to make sure your devices are listed: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/across-devices/devices

 

Hope this helps.

@ThereseSolimenoI have the same exact problem as @Jariahm9956. My microphone volume is incredibly low and it wasn't like this until I installed Teams. I have tried doing what you asked and it didn't work, I even uninstalled Teams from my PC and my microphone is still quiet. Teams did something to my microphone and now no one can hear me.

A bit late but this worked for me @swagphoenix69 . I had the exact same problem.

Start > Sound Settings > Device properties (microphone) > Adjust volume to 100.

Hope I helped.

I GOT A SOLUTION (a bit late but the problem occured some days ago for me)

1) Go into a call (Test call or just call someone)

2) While in the call open Task Manager

3) Kill the "Microsoft Teams"-Task

Here you go...
