Audio issues during a meeting — you can't hear them, or they can't hear you — are frustrating. If you're experiencing issues, check these settings in Microsoft Teams
- First, ensure your headphones are connected to your Mac (especially if they are bluetooth wireless):
- Next check the Microsoft Teams Device Settings. These settings are hidden and in my experience can only be accessed while in a meeting. (Teams needs a Preference dialog box like most macOS apps!)
It's important to check the audio sources selected for both Speaker and Microphone are the ones you want. Also, ensure the Speaker volume slider is far enough to the right for people to hear you.
- STILL NOW WORKING? If all your settings look good but issues remain, try selecting another audio source and returning to the one you want (essentially forcing Teams to toggle your audio source on and off), or restart Teams and check everything again.
TIP: Standardizing on one device throughout the day to minimize changing the audio settings can really help. I do everything on my Mac, but an iPad Pro works great too.
