Are you aware that the Store-fed Insider version is still marooned on 8.64, last being updated in early September?

This is not the first time that's happened. Sometimes the Store-fed Insider version goes on holiday. It's unclear to me why it can't stay as updated as the non-Store version (which you're right, is 8.66), especially these days when they're 99% identical.

Please allow moderators to mute all and prevent unmuting without permission, the way a host can do it in Zoom. It's hard to imagine up to a 100 on a call where dozens want to speak at the same time, especially students. It also would be a great alternative to Facebook Live, allowing people to watch a livestream but prevent other audio inputs
