Option for Passive voice channels.
As an avid gamer, I feel like we gamers are very good at collaboration.
I would like to have a voice channel much like to see a passive voice channel where your team members can join and passively talk to each other as they work Much like how discord or team speak works in addition to what already exist in teams. This also will break up the monotony of needing excessive Skype meetings. For people whom work in the department, but are Geographically separated, and cant getup from their desk to just ask a teammate a simple question.
I tweeted this earlier. Thank you for the submission, this needs a ton of votes. Example is discord voice chat rooms, where you can drop in, set permissions, limit participants, etc. fantastic idea for work as well. (i'm an avid gamer too :))

I would love to see this happen. I know the critic would say, start a call with someone via Skype but that is not the same as a "Common Voice Area". Having the ability to create Voice Channels (exactly like Discord) would be a great way of encouraging collaboration across teams in diverse locations.
I would settle for the integration within Skype for Business directly (create Voice Groups or something that can be found in the Address Book) but it does make a lot of sense within Teams since there is already an access based structure in place.
Agreed. This is a definite win for remote teams/employees as a way to simulate the interaction of "just drop by my desk for a quick chat". In order to talk to someone now, you have to call them (and most people ask first) which lacks the organic feeling of spontaneous conversation.
