Thank you for your feedback! The team is planning for this work. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

There is now in meeting details the option to choose "Allow participants to unmute themselves." If you click no, it seems as though once you have muted a participant, you as the organizer do not even have the option to unmute the participant later to speak. This is not convenient. Allow organizers to have the ability to unmute the attendee later when he or she feels it's necessary.
