During meetings and calls you can get some notifications that helps you to get a good experience.
When you are in a meeting but Teams don’t get any audio from you. “Teams can’t hear you Either you’re being really quiet, or you should check your device settings.” In this case I used a wireless headset that were not powered on but the USB dongle were connected and selected as default device.
If you try to say anything and have muted yourself in Teams you might get the warning that “Your microphone is muted”. This will only work if Teams is able to register any sound, if you muted from your headset Teams might not be able to register any sound.
If you join a Teams meeting late Teams will warn you that there is many others that already joined the meeting so you should join it muted so you don’t disrupting them and maybe that you should feel a bit ashamed.
When you attend a meeting and the connection to bad to get a good experience Teams will advise you to dial in to the meeting instead for a better sound.

Teams notifications are not helpful but really annoying when you have a good microphone or (AI) noise cancellation (software/hardware) and Teams wrongly thinks you’re “being really quiet”. There’s no way to disable the notification from appearing again and again in meetings and disrupting the flow. I wish Microsoft would give the user more control and choice over these key calling functions.
Can we get rid of this banner? I prefer to mute my microphone from my headset. The banner is redundant.
