Single button to turn camera and microphone on and off
In meetings, out of courtesy and to preserve bandwidth, my colleagues and I mute our microphones and switch the camera off when not speaking. Please could we have a single button to do both things?
I 100% agree. This would be particularly beneficial for large meetings. Perhaps a wide button under the camera-mute and microphone-mute buttons which activates/deactivates both simultaneously.
I truly want this function.

Agree. Similar to the momentary unmute feature Zoom offers via the space bar but to include the camera functionality as well. My wife is a elementary teacher and when she's presenting subject material she doesn't want her students being seen or heard doing things distracting. But when she calls on a student to answer a question, they could just hold the space bar down to unmute and turn on the camera and once they release the space bar they are again muted and camera is turned off.

Even better - default ALWAYS OFF. PTT (push to talk) button to enable mic/video only while the button is held. Like... y'know has been in use in radio comms for some 100 years...

This would be a great function. As a secondary member of a meeting our SOP's are to mic off and camera off, when you want to speak or address the group, Mic on Camera On.
