Add live voting and polling to Teams Live Events
With other platforms, you can ask participants to vote and or answer polling questions during the meeting/event. I would like to see functionality such as that available in Teams Live Events (and actually in regular meetings too).
Thanks for your comments and votes. The team is working on this and we will update as soon as there are more details to share.
Any update on options for polling participants in Teams Live? We are planning an international event for October 2021 and really need this function! Thank you

Is there any update on this?
Live polling would help so much when delivering careers sessions into schools. If we can interact with our students we create a sense of community, sharing thoughts and feelings as well as checking knowledge transfer, learning and satisfaction. I await this function on Teams Live Events with great anticipation - by September this year would be particularly awesome.
Live polling has become an essential tool and a pre requisite. This tool has to be rolled out on priority rather than so many other apps
IT teams are under tremendous pressure to provide live poll/ survey on teams since other platforms are already providing it.
User are unhappy and may or may not be interested to take that extra step since It is very disturbing to access chat and take the poll while live meeting is going on or at the end of meeting

Any updates on being able to poll or vote during a teams meeting?
Would be a great tool for group training
So it's great that polling is now available - Microsoft Forms add-in to a particular event - thanks!
Is there somewhere we can access the results of the polling after the Live Event is finished?

Is there anywhere in the pipe line to include the Gallery camera option that has been recently rolled out onto the local teams to the Live Events, as well as the option to manage, move and organiser the Presenters cameras, with the ability to queue more than one camera view. If yes how soon?

Its coming up to 1.5 years since the last update on polling. When is this functionality going to be prioritised?
MS continues to deliver half baked clunky software to the masses ... just once it would be great if your products "just worked"
Mariah Lescasse commented
need polling available on any team meeting to include external guests as well
A Polling feature is imperative if you are wanting to ensure the audience is engaged and to also obtain live feedback. As will have been stated by others this is a feature that is available in other platforms and needs to be included for Teams Live Event to be complete

Any update on this? It is now April 2021.
this is absolute must. any idea on potential time frame of implementation?
It's mandatory for a Live Event solution counting with embedded interactive tools to have the attendee's attention. The Remote event could mean loos the audience after 5' from the start if you can not interact with them.
We use vevox - not free to get the great stuff, but you can do some stuff free, AND can include it in live presentations (powerpoint)
Yes, please update with live polling and surveys!

Please allow full functionality for meeting guests. More than ever we are trying to consult our communities on-line and we need comprehensive polling to enable this
It would be great to add to a simple voting option to standard Teams conferences too. Could be added to participant's reaction (such as raise hand) by adding Agree / Disagree / Abstain, ideally showing number and percentage of Agree / Disagree / Abstain votes.
