  • Toggle background blur on/off
  • Leave the meeting
  • Post live reactions
  • Raise/lower hand
  • Record

Here is how to install Microsoft Teams buttons on the Stream Deck

1. In the Microsoft Teams desktop client (Windows or Mac), Click on the ellipses within Teams, settings, privacy, and manage API



2. Enable API and generate the API token


3. Copy this API, ready  to input into Stream Deck software

4. In Stream Deck software, go to the store and Install the Microsoft Teams App


Back in the main Elgato Steam Deck app, scroll down to the Microsoft Teams section, drag and drop one of the Teams actions onto a key, and paste in the API token.


The API token will automatically be applied with any additional Teams actions you add.

Once you join your next meeting or webinar, you’ll see your new Teams keys light up on your Elgato Stream Deck.
