Well I stayed up past 2 AM in Melbourne to try to find more details regarding adding audio/video for Mac users. I got a perfunctory reply directing me to the User Voice post, which has not been updated for 2 months. So basically, stayed up for no reason, and had my thoughts confirmed about how Mac users are a low priority. MS simply will not discuss this and there are many many music teachers who are very disappointed that things that are seriously essential are moving at a snails pace.

Hi@Brett Rosenberg If you can be more specific about what you're looking for regarding adding audio/video for Mac users, perhaps we can find a more direct answer. 

@Brett Rosenberg 

I'm sorry for your frustration. We wish we had a better update at this time for you. If you're able to vote on the item referenced in UserVoice, you'll be notified first of any update we have to share as the team works on the feature. By no means are we not listening to you - we hear you. By adding your vote to UV, you'll not only add to the weight of that item but get an update when there's movement as well.  

Thanks for being here tonight - please continue pushing for those features that are important to you and your students.

Just a site comment @Laurie Pottmeyer about the User Voice.

So far nobody has clarified if there are any differences between client and admin requests. Think about case where one user opens a request: "Can you enable 49 video streams to Teams". It would be not  surprise that votes for that idea goes through the roof very fast.

 

Then you have admin, who is asking tiny fix to e.g. client logging or PowerShell which saves everybody's time and resources, but also makes administrators life much better.

 

For us the current message from you has been: those feature requests have the same weight. But you should understand that there are a bit different number of admins compared to users. So the votes cannot be never ever on the same level.

 

So why we should publish any ideas to there unless they are super cool features for users?
