How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Live Events Mute/Unmute Participants for Q&A

Allow the producer to unmute/mute participants if they ask a question. So the experience could be, a person asks a question in Live Events, the Producer selects them and announces "We have a question from Bob" and then unmutes Bob and allows Bob to verbally ask his question.

    I realize this would be difficult to implement due to the delay between the presenters and the participants... Maybe a compromise could be to simply allow participants to record a question with their voice rather than necessarily typing it into the box. Whoever is moderating the event could then listen to the question (without it bothering any other presenters/producers) and decide whether to play it so the presenter(s) can hear and answer.

    As LiveEvents is primary a streaming tool, they might try to increase the number of Teams-Meeting participants to something higher than 250.
