Enable option to follow speaker for Teams Live Events
For a Teams Live Event where there are multiple presenters we would like the option of the view for the attendees to automatically change when a different presenter speaks, rather than requiring to queue up and manually change the speaker.

I second third fourth fifth and sixth this idea. Absolutely needed for timely switching in Q&A or panel discussion. Obviously the software already knows who is talking as it is indicated. If there was anyone from Microsoft using the tool in this scenario they would quickly see how needed this feature is.

I think this is a fantastic idea, wanted to post this but it was already added by Rene.
It should be an option that could be turned on and off, so that the producer has the choice to, for example, show a static slide instead. But in some cases (and I think the majority of Q&A sections of a meeting) it would be fantastic to switch on this option and ensure that the switching to the most active speaker is automatic.
