Add subject to private chat conversation
While a private chat could be seen as one long conversation, adding a subject and threading can help keep a conversation topic together. Much like an email between two people.
You can do this by clicking the pencil icon next to the chat name, which defaults to show the list of users in the chat. When you click the pencil, a fly out text box will appear and you can type a custom name for that group chat.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Have a happy Thursday!

I don't think this should be marked as completed.
I don't know if this was available in previous versions of Teams Chat but I do not see it now.
Version I am 1.2.00.34161 (64-bit). It was last updated on 1/15/20.
Saw this as completed while searching for which of the many requests for this feature has the most votes to add mine to the pile.

This goes hand in hand with private channels that are member specific

Allow a conversation to be classified, possibly using a tag or some other mechanism. Conversations can then be filtered for people who may want to go back and review a conversation for pertinent details on a specific topic.

Adding my votes to this: one of the best features of Skype/consumer is grabbing a bunch of people into a group and then naming it for later use. Whilst we can achieve the same effect with different teams, that's quite wasteful when you might just want to grab 3 people for a short project.

+1 really want this, it's important to be able to have private conversations inside a team, and without naming them it'll become unmanageable fast!
It's an absolute must-have! As there's no other way for cross-team communication, "ad-hoc" chats must have names.
Just like emails.. or Skype for Consumer. List of people in the title (or list of chats) does not help in this case.
