Give an option for Teams Live Events (and other O365 live events) that will play music before meeting starts
BlueJeans for broadcast events plays audio (like elevator music) so that the remote parties can test the audio devices before the critical events start. This prevents the need for outside companies and needing to start the even early to do audio tests.
And a count down clock would help
Would also be great if we could personalise the 'live event hasn't started yet' screen

Need to have the ability to play "hold" music or pre-event content but still allow presenters to talk in the back end
If you share your computer audio when you share your screen you can play music
Derek Barylski commented
While something more formal would be ideal, we went with just starting the meeting early and sharing a splash screen with music playing 5-10 min prior to the call. Once the meeting is actually ready to begin, I cut over to the speaker and mute the computer. Just a thought!

+1 and not only for Live Events but for any meeting. Quite often when a meeting starts a few minutes later, someone asks "is everybody in silence or do I have audio problems?".
Richard Browne commented
Yup - ability to add content as a pre-Live holding screen for Attendees - music, slide, still image, looping video, looping slides. Would be awesome.
Peter Holdridge commented
The producer should have the ability to start hold music without having to present anything and the presenters can just show a "starting soon" slide

Like Tim mentioned video clips would be cool but if we can't do that a custom Image would be nice. Instead of just showing "The live event hasn't started yet".
Tim Banting commented
PErsonally, I would like to see support for video clips. I think a lobby that has the option to play video would be really good. Far too many boring solutions out there that have one slide with "the meeting will start shortly".
Hardly portrays a professional image.
would be great!
That will increase the usability enormous !!
