The only way to hold a Teams Q&A session in the app is by downloading the Q&A app from the Microsoft Teams store. However, this isn't how organizers will hold a Q&A session in the future, as Teams users will soon be able to enable Q&A to any Teams Webinars or Meetings through Meeting Options.
According to Microsoft 365 Roadmap page, Question & Answer for Teams webinars and meetings will be available for all users across different platforms, including web, desktop, mobile, Android, and iOS. By enabling Q&A, organizers will be able to "create either moderated or unmoderated Q&A experience."
It's currently not entirely clear how the built-in Q&A experience will differ from the Q&A app, as Microsoft hasn't demoed how the feature will work. That said, we should learn about it very soon. How soon, you ask? Well, the Roadmap page mentions that the new Q&A experience is going to be available for all this month.
However, there is always some degree of uncertainty when Microsoft promises something. Much like what happened to dark mode for the Word for the web, this too can get delayed, after all.
Microsoft is working on a new Teams feature that will make it easier for organizers to hold a Q&A session in the app. The company has plans to bring the new Q&A experience to all users this month.
