Settings and Audio issues for Teams on Windows 11

New Contributor

Not sure what I am missing but I cannot see any Mic under Teams Settings. The Mic works fine under Skype for example. The Teams version shows Version 21253.510.996.1465 and there does not appear to be a way to do a Test Call in this version also. I cannot see Teams in the Mic's privacy list either. All issues started after upgrading Windows 10 to Windows 11.

21253.510.996.1465 uses Windows built-in APIs.

Mic settings are done under Windows 11's Sound settings, not through the Teams app.


Test Call functionality is not available right now because this app is new and does not have most of the features from the old app. It was built from the ground up, so quite a lot of stuff is missing.

It is disappointing that Microsoft would launch a windows 11 version of Teams which has some critical functionality missing versus the Windows 10 version. I found this out through trial and error and Microsoft should make this clear to users. Windows 11 is not complete and not a replacement for windows 10. The management of windows for apps is also quite buggy which is a pain on my 49 inch screen, Sometimes it works, sometimes the apps have no options available to drop into windows.

A major disappointment. I have a new machine and downgrading to Windows 10 is going to be a pain.
