Photo Capture in Together Mode
I see Together Mode used very frequently to capture group photos using screenshots, however some users may not easily know how to capture a screenshot. It would be a cool idea if the organizer could have a "Take a Photo" button in their control bar when they switch to Together Mode. The photo could be captured and then stored on the organizer's OneDrive and automatically shared with an email link to everyone in the meeting so they have the group photo.
Even better, this could be an opportunity to use AI to capture better group photos. Maybe the organizer could click a "Take a Photo" button and then a countdown happens on everyones screen or detect in the meeting when a certain percentage of users on screen are smiling to automatically capture the photo at the right moment after the "Take a Photo" button is pressed.

Yeah, we just had a meeting and we do not know how to capture picture of everyone, maybe have a button to request for switch on of camera, and allow attendees to allow it, And adding scrolling for users to scroll and see who are the attendees and take picture accordingly.
We often have long meetings with people coming and going... it would be great if the organizer could set the room to take a group photo and the system would prompt individuals and collage them together - that way those who come in (early or late) could be stitched in rather than trying to take a screenshot.

A complement is to have a button "take a photo" and this photo will be appear in download folder.
And have a timer to take a photo.
Maybe, thats a pretty good idea, but I don't like the part where it is automatically shared
