Very shortsighted engineering on this app, here are some ways to make it more robust.
This app has so many issues, I can't even begin to start with what needs to change, but here goes:
1.) Being able to chat with 2 different teams at once would be really useful. I am on 2 projects at my job and can listen to 2 meetings at once if one occurs in other software, (Zoom, Facebook Chat) but not with teams. Remember Multi Tasking? I am stuck in 2 boring meetings which occur at the same time and mostly they are not even saying anything I need to hear, just need to be available to respond should the team members need a question answered.
2.) How about adding a "Ping Light" in Meeting button with a light when they have a question for you it lights up and "Dings" - then you can switch meetings.
3.) How about a live headset / speaker check meter in/out - if pro audio recording applications can have track enable / mute do it why can teams not? it needs a complete overhaul!!!
4.) Multi-Camera, Multi Stream source - OBS is a streaming app that does so much more than teams. Why Doesn't Teams fix it's issues and allow chat streaming, RSS feeds, other live stream enabling in the content, and use it for gaming, sharing, etc. Allow people to only watch the stream and others attend the meeting as well. So many more enhancements to be made to this software, Microsoft has a good chance to make this a great product, but has so far failed. With the purchase of Discord, I hope they realize the potential and add to their offerings. Time to mash together Discord, Teams and Skype into one app! Add OBS features while you are at it.
