Teams, WebEx, Jabbar, zoom all the tools I would recommend for chat and video conference calls.

I know there's a bug with zoom that if the chat dialog is open, then zoom
does not appear in the task list when you use alt+tab to switch programs.
It does show up if you use windows+tab to switch programs. I've had an
open bug on that for about 4 months and get updates periodically.

Alt+H works to open the chat window. The question window does not have a
keyboard shortcut.
Alt+A works to mute your microphone.
