Participants may be in a noisy environment. The lack of push to talk creates extra hassle of constantly having to mute, then unmute with the mouse control (even when participants are wearing headphones). Push to talk would solve this. All VoIP users should be able to assign their own PTT hotkey. When pressed it unmutes the mic, and when released, mutes it again.
Many voice chat programs like Ventrillo, Teamspeak, and Mumble, have PTT. This would be a valuable option for GoToMeeting, Webinar, and Training.
2020 in a month and still no push to talk
Bump. Would love to see PTT added
So this has been in the 'dream sheet' since at least 2015, and not adopted, and not even commented upon. Very disappointed that GTM (and now LMI) thinks so little of their customers. Zoom has had it since day one and I can tell you it makes a world of difference, both as a user and as the host. You have dropped the ball. I understand thata security is better with GTM, but most meetings don't need it. Ease of use will almost always rule when selecting a product.
Thank you for all the feedback around this enhancement idea. We will certainly consider the idea for future development, and I appreciate the use-case scenarios posted here. As we make progress, we'll update the Community down the line.
