  • Yes I do, this however shows up even if I'm not in any audio conversation on Teams. I can see what Microsoft did here... :( Dec 28, 2020 at 15:05

    Skype's eventually going to be EOL'd for Teams, as that's the preferred platform now per Microsoft. It's not uncommon to see Skype and Teams say they're each other in the Microphone (because it's the same toolsets I think internally)
