Updated: Microsoft Forms Brings Polls to Teams Meetings
With Forms integration with Teams, it is now very simple to create polls for meetings.
As a meeting presenter or organizer, you can prepare polls in advance.  Simply go to your Teams meeting chat or Teams meeting details view and add (+ button) the Forms app as a tab to start creating polls.  This new tab will automatically be called “Polls”.

Unless the user is a meeting presenter or meeting organizer, that user will not be able to add the Forms app as a tab and cannot create and manage polls. Presenters are given control of the meeting experience, as attendees are only able to respond to polls.
During the meeting, the presenter or organizer can launch a poll without leaving the meeting window by first clicking the Forms icon at the top of the Teams window.  All of the prepared polls will appear on the right pane, choose which poll to “launch”

After the meeting, the organizer can evaluate the poll results in the polls tab directly and/or export the results to Excel.
