Add Live Reaction Option in meetings
This Live Reaction option (including "Thumbs Up") would be an easy way for Attendees to respond to the Presenter during meetings consisting of more than 15 people. This would prevent mass unmuting of microphones which causes the whole meeting to go out of order and most importantly loses time.
We are planning a feature to allow participants to react during a meeting using emojis, and have them appear to all participants. You can read more details here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/blog/2020/07/08/reimagining-virtual-collaboration-future-work-learning/.
@Alex, I have seen the above blog linked several times now but either the page doesn't exist or has changed in some way as I cannot get to it but would be very interested to see the content:
Make an option to show short reactions in video calls like in skype calls. The icon should appear as layer above the own video from webcam.
Need more than zooms Thumbs Up / Down, Applause. Need Raise Hand, X or Check which would rollup into a summary
Can you please add Hearts or Likes or emojis that we can click when we agree with whatever anyone is saying in mass videocalls/voicecalls? thanks! I hope this will be heard.

Quick Reactions to presenter. Laughter, claps, hearts, whatever...Good for training and seminars to presenter to get reactions on presentation when everyone is muted.

I would also add a no feature. The yes / no and raise hand should be apart of a tool bar for the video conference.
We need reactions in video chat. We now have big group meetings, and we need ways to say "yes" and "clap" without unmuting
Simlar to what zoom or twitch seem to have:
