Allow users to enable push to talk in group meetings
Allow the users to configure to enable push to talk in group meetings.
Thank you for your continued feedback, we have not forgotten about this ask. The feature remains on our backlog. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
In the meantime, you can try using the keyboard shortcut to toggle mute (Ctrl+Shift+M). For more information on keyboard shortcuts, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/office/keyboard-shortcuts-for-microsoft-teams-2e8e2a70-e8d8-4a19-949b-4c36dd5292d2.

IT IS A NEW YEAR AND NOTHING IS HAPPENING...WHY
I can't believe such a simple thing hasn't been implemented yet. Shocking. Discord has had this feature since inception and Zoom also has this. This isn't looking good, Microsoft.
how is this not implemented. we wouldn't have to use zoom if it wasn't for not having this.
This is such a basic feature of every one of Microsoft's competitors' solutions I find it hard to believe this hasn't been implemented yet. As quiz commented below please allow each user to specify exactly which key they wish to use for ptt.
any news on the feature?
It's almost the end of the year. Any update this, as this would help prevent some embarrassing and awkward moments.
If/when this gets implemented, I really hope the designers realize that spacebar would be *very* inconvenient given it's frequent usage outside the scope of the voice-chat, it would be one of, if not the *worst* choice.
The user needs to be able to set the keyboard (or input in general) command they personally choose as all of us have our own variances of duties.
by default the ` key would be ideal since it's very rarely used.
others may opt for a right hand controlled key such as \
but programmers and other IT folk would probably find this annoying...
others still may prefer something such as the numpad + key, since it's within reach of the right thumb while mousing
or even better, those with additional mouse buttons (or a foot pedal) could utilize those as a hotkey for Push-to-talk
Considering this has been a standard feature in group based VOIP chats since at least 2004 (and standard on radio communications since their inception) I am amazed teams/skype/lync has still inexplicably never implemented a PTT feature.
the year is comming to an end. Are there any news on this feature? This would be extremly helpful in conferences with lots of participants.
Yes please push to talk would be nice!
I've used the two apps for system wide push to talk:
TalkToggle - Windows - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/talk-toggle/9nrjcs6g10kt
MuteKey - macOS - https://apps.apple.com/us/app/mutekey/id1509590766

Please for the love of god give us PTT. This request is on its 3rd birthday.

Let's avoid those CNN moments folks!
David Pammenter commented
I want to suggest that as well as Push to talk, you can have an option to also enable your video on PTT. am I going to have to start another uservoice poll for this??
A configurable key is of paramount importance. If I am in a meeting and the spacebar is the push-to-talk key, I can't use it when another app is at forefront.
For my part, I would probably set it to LCTRL+LALT+LSHIFT.
David Pammenter commented
Yes another PTT vote... Thanks!
Another vote for "press and hold spacebar to talk".
This is such an intuitive feature.
Johannes Benoit commented
I would love that feature.
best would be to have the push to talk key configurable...
Please implement this feature asap. WE NEED THIS
This is the main reason I'm not using teams.
