Unmute mic temporarily with a quick shortcut like "space press"
Unmute mic temporarily with a quick shortcut like "space bar" and then remute (Feature similar to Zoom)
Fully agree, had a quick search and was disappointed it is still not available in Teams. Many meeting participants have their microphones muted, but get a quick question to answer. It often takes time to have people unmute their microphones.
Zoom has an excellent feature for this. By holding the space bar, the microphone is unmuted for as long as it is pressed down.
It could not be difficult to replicate this very valuable feature to make meetings much more smooth (most users in our organisation use desktop app so... helpful for them at least).

Push to Talk using Space bar would be a great addition. It works great in Zoom

The space bar unmute in Zooms basically works as a "Push to Talk" function - it unmutes as long as the button is pressed, and mutes again when lifting the finger off the button.
its really a good option and should avalable as soon as possible.
its there in webex, zoom etc...
And also unmute via long press on iPad/iPhone app
