Whenever I join a meeting, Teams will unmute my microphone.

I'd prefer to control when I go off of mute.

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    I am very sorry for your inconvenience

    Microsoft Teams currently does not have a specific setting to automatically unmute the microphone. You can manually mute the microphone before or after joining the meeting. Please refer to

    Manage attendee audio and video permissions in Microsoft Teams meetings - Microsoft Support Can you double check if your microphone was muted before joining the meeting? If there is any misunderstanding, please let me know.

    Best regards,

    Jill Zhou

    Teams users can set if users can mute themselves when joining a meeting, but there is no way to set everyone to mute by default when joining a meeting.

    If you want to get this feature quickly, please cast a support ticket in Microsoft Feedback. Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers’ feedback. With requirements like this increase, the problem may well be released in the future.

    Thanks for your understanding and support.
