does it function the same way as PowerPoint presenter coach, but in a live environment?
Are there any privacy concerns with this tool listening to meetings? What is the retention policy on this?
I've been enjoying Speaker Coach until it seemingly disappeared on September 8th, 2022. Is there a plan for a standard release?
Same here, would like to hear of any updates.

Is it possible to get a report if they are turned on automatically, but meet on as weekly basis with External users? The chat becomes disabled when the meeting ends, so while the notification is given, the report doesn't seem to be available. Is is possibly saved in OneDrive per chance for cases like these?
