This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 79497
When this will happen:
Microsoft expects this rollout to begin in late September and be fully completed by early October.
How this will affect your organization:
Word Cloud Poll in Teams can significantly improve your meeting engagement. This is an excellent way to reflect audience opinions/feeling within the crowd.
Previously, Forms poll in Teams meeting only had the option of a multiple-choice poll and quiz. With this release, there will be an additional question type, a word cloud poll. This will allow presenters to set up an open-ended question to collect attendees’ opinion.
NOTE: Similar to the current settings for a multiple choice poll, responses are anonymous so other users will not know who submitted which word to the word cloud.
