Enabling a presenter to lock the video stream for all users who join a meeting, is planned.
Pinning participants is already available – this was tracked in https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/19512820
This is working today in the web client on Edge & Chrome. The team is actively investigating feasibility in the desktop client.
There are two parts to this topic:
1) Completed: Bypass the lobby for PSTN: The ability for admins and organizers to be able to specify a meeting option to bypass the PSTN lobby independently of the VoIP lobby.
2) On the backlog: Ability for an organizer joined via PSTN to admit users from the lobby with a PIN. If you enable “Always let callers bypass the lobby” in your meeting options, people calling in by phone will join your meeting without having to wait for someone to admit them.

Please Note: In Q2CY20, we launched a new default in for the Teams meeting policy (https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=63388). If tenants have not modified their default meeting policy, lobby is now enforced.
The feature team has this on their backlog officially now. We don’t have any timing to share at this point, but we will keep you posted.

A fix for this is being worked on. We hope to have a fix in internal Microsoft rings soon for testing. I don’t have a timeline for release externally at this point, but will keep you posted.
The team is happy to announce that this functionality is now available through the Presence Graph API which is now in public Beta! We have additional functionality planned for the API so please keep checking back for updates.
Please note that this is a beta version of the API and may be subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported.
- Online documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/presence?view=graph-rest-beta
Screen sharing on Chrome and Chromium-based Edge is now supported. We also have released support for joining meetings from Safari, Firefox and IE browsers, with some limitations. For details, please see the following link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#browsers
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.

Agreed - we're trying to leverage Teams as a basic helpdesk platform for a small team, with email being the task trigger, but with no notifications for emails sent to Channels, it's not working too well.
This item is still under consideration by the feature team.
