UPDATE: With the continued improvements to Microsoft Teams, you can now easily create your own Together mode scenes via the Scene studio in the Microsoft Teams Developer Portal. With Halloween just days away, Microsoft just added this spooky Halloween Haunted House to use as a template. What spooky scenes can you come up with? 👻
