Hello,

i have problem with MS Teams. I'm working on Teams, but I do not making a lot of calls. I'm able to listening to music when working. But i got a lot of notifications from Teams (necessary) and for every notification other sounds from system are getting lower. It's very annoying when listening to music or watching any kind of webinar. Can i somewhere change it? The same with calls. I just don't want to allow Teams to change my volume.
I've tried to uncheck "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" for my speakers and headphones but didn't work for it.

@Muzykant Did you ever figure this out? Its pretty annoying when you are listening to something and I get a chat notification and it drops the audio from whatever I'm listening to so low that I basically cant hear it. It only applies to notifications I get from Teams and no other Windows 10 notifications. I cant seem to find an option anywhere to change it (in Teams settings or Windows 10).

@Muzykant same problem here. It's only just started doing it (for some reason), but it's really annoying. I have the "When windows detects communication activity" setting in the control panel for "sound" in the "communications" tab set to "Do nothing", which it appears to be ignored by Teams now.
