        This would be awesome. We use discord a lot for our remote workers so we don't have to sit on a call when working on a project

        This would be great, it is one of my favorite features in Xoom (pressing the space bar unmutes you only while it's held down).

        I really like this idea. I would love to have something somewhat similar to Zello if it's possible.

        I would like this also. Modeled after discord preferably so we could jump into a team channel together and push to talk.

        Why does Microsoft Teams not have this feature when Discord has had it forever and Discord is free but Teams costs money?

        Came here just to post this idea; glad someone else thought of it too...

        Rather than toggle-on, toggle-off, I would like to put my microphone on mute and have it stay that way... except that I could press a key and I would be unmuted for as long as that key was pressed... just like a walkie-talkie push-to-talk button.

        Maybe long-talkers would just get unmuted for real if they talked for more than, say, 30 seconds?

        For example:

        Organizer: "That's all I had for today, does anyone have anything else?"

        Me (muted): <presses SHIFT to unmute> "Nope, thanks." <releases SHIFT to re-mute>

        Organizer: "Thanks bye"
