M365 Changelog: (Updated) Microsoft Teams certified Peripherals – Teams Button to bring Teams Meeting Stage to Foreground During Meeting

Microsoft Teams users can soon bring up the meeting stage to the foreground by pressing their Teams Button during a meeting.

Note: This feature only applies to devices with dedicated Teams Buttons. If the device has a dual-purpose button (supports both hookswitch and Teams Button), pressing the button will end the call.
