Assign Rocket Ship button to switch video on / off?


I am using a Poly Synch 20-M with Microsoft Teams button.


is it possible to define a custom action on the Rocket Ship Button? Specifically, I would like to see switch Video on/off in Microsoft Teams. 


is this possible, anyone?

With the Poly Lens app you can configure the Rocket button to perform one of a few predefined actions, but when using it with Teams only the "Hold/Resume Call' option is really applicable.


There is no way currently to add custom controls or macro behaviors to that button.

Thanks for the response.


any plans to change this in the near future? would be a great addition to have more flexibility to assign specific functionality to the rocket button.
