Microsoft Teams - How to Share Sound from your Computer in a Meeting or Live Event
This document details how to share sound from your computer within a Teams meeting or live event.
Screen Sharing with Computer Audio
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.
1. To share sound from your computer, select "Share content" in your meeting controls.
2. Select "Include computer sound" towards the top of the Share Screen function to turn it on.
3. Select Include computer sound in the sharing controls to stop sharing sound.
***NOTE: When you share, all audio from your computer, including notifications, will be included in the meeting.***
***NOTE: You can also choose to include to stop sharing sound after you've begun sharing your screen.***
***NOTE: 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 using the search function of your device:
1. Select the Communications tab.
2. Select "Do Nothing."
3. Select "Apply."
4. Select "OK."
