when im in teams my mic works perfectly fine for all programs that i use like discord. but as soon as i disconnect from teams my mic also stops working in discord this only started today. is there a way to fix this ?? or atleast start a call with myself so my mic works.

@JasperK4 I have the same problem. The only way to create a private call so that your mic works again is to go to Microsoft teams settings, go to devices, and make a test call. Then after that you can just leave the call running as long as you want.

I had this problem as well. I found this reddit post that solved it. https://www.reddit.com/r/MicrosoftTeams/comments/h9bu9y/microphone_only_works_while_in_teams/
