Microsoft Teams - How to Share Sound from your Computer in a Meeting or Live Event
This article outlines how to share sound from your computer within a Teams meeting or live event.
If you’re sharing a video or audio clip during a Teams meeting or live event, you’ll want to include sound from your computer. The following instructions will show you how to do so.
To share sound from your computer, select Share contentin your meeting controls and then switch the toggle to on for Include computer sounds – it’s the switch on the top left of your sharing options.
When you share, all audio from your computer, including notifications, will be included in the meeting.
You can also choose to include or stop sharing sound after you’ve begun sharing your screen. Select Include computer sound in the sharing controls and tap the button again to stop sharing sound.
If you’re using Windows, other sounds from your device (like notifications and alerts) are reduced in volume when you join a Team meeting. If you’re sharing computer sound, the same setting that quiets other sounds will also quiet the audio you’re trying to share.
To reset your sound back to normal, find your Sound Control Panel (search using the Cortana search bar), select the Communications tab, then select the Do Nothing option. Be sure to Apply the changes. Then, hit OK.
