Please add a setting "Join meeting on mute"

Copper Contributor

Dear developers,

It can be quite embarrassing when you're joining a meeting and don't notice that you're not muted.

This happens quite frequently when someone else joins a bigger meeting. You then join the meeting as well by simply confirming the popup and - if there's still time - you continue working and don't check your settings.

Then you may say something to your colleagues in the same room or talk to yourself while working.

Therefore, I'm sure that most Teams users would really appreciate such a setting (we had it in Skype).

Thanks very much!

Best regards,

@HenrikeG - Could you please help by suggesting this feature at Microsoft Teams feedback portal.

Zoom has this feature for a while now. When it comes strictly to video meetings, Zoom is eating Microsoft's lunch. We use both and Zoom is superior for meetings imo, but Teams has all of the other integrations and functionality that isn't available in Zoom.
