You can use the chat capability in all collaboration tools for this purpose (i.e. team members simultaneously enter their item sizes when the facilitator says "go") but other options are:
1. If you use Miro for collaboration, there are two estimating poker options within it
2. Planningpoker.com is free for up to five folks in a team and has paid subscriptions with higher capabilities
I agree with Kiron. Planningpoker.com is a good option for story point estimation, or you can use
https://planningpokeronline.com/ as an alternative.
I trust Kiron's experience and knowledge.
I just tried out planningpoker.com and I think it will be my best option moving forward due to the ease of use.
You can find a lot of tools, including free of cost tools, to play it.
Another option, using the tool you are already in - Teams, is to give people time to think of their point estimate and then, tell them to post their estimate on the count of 3. I've done this many times and as long as everyone submits their estimate at the same time with little delay, it works well. You can just use Chat in Teams, or any other video tool and it works just fine.
