Need read receipts
Mobile working, Asynchronous working of teams is a common phenomena. Read receipts let us know if the message has been seen, so we know it can be acted on. Critical when large numbers of the team are mainly mobile workers.
We’re excited to announce that read receipts is currently rolling out to the public ring for desktop & mobile. You can find out more about the feature here –
The feature will be rolling out over the next week or so. Please hang tight if you don’t see it yet!

How do I turn this OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fantastic to see the new feature "Read Receipt".
Can you extend to the Conversations in Team Sites as well ?
Why only for chats, but not for conversations?
We are many users not happy with this feature for several reasons (privacy, misunderstandings concerns mostly). How come you roll-out such a feature without possibility to disable it? It is insane.
Please allow it to be turned off as a user preference. The fascination in systems with being able to see when people read what you send (or, more importantly, that I have read what they sent me), is both annoying and a privacy concern. This feature became active in our system this morning and I already detest it immensely.
‘read receipt’ needed in Channels as well.

"read receipt" is needed for Channel messages to ensure everyone has seen the message.
Released "read receipt" is only for group chat. Do you have any plan it for Channel message ?

Read receipts have been added on the desktop apps finally!
No word on mobile apps but the updates may take a few days to get approved. :D
There may be some kind of tick mark for the message delivered and a double tick for the messages read by the recipient in Teams messaging service

I would like to suggest that we could know when the receiver of the message reads it (as Whatsapp does). I believe it is called Reading Receipt.

When we send a message to a person or a team, it would be helpful to see who all have read the message. Eg: Whatsapp
When will this be available on desktop?
The read receipt message is marked with the last message.
I hope it is marked for all messages.

It has been launched at our company, however, it seems most employees have not turned on the option. Why is this a privacy setting? Facebook Messenger and Google Hangouts do not allow you to turn off the "Seen" option, why is this allowed here? I think you should change it so that it's required.

This feature is really necessary for us. Cisco Teams has it..
At the one-year anniversary of the last update from Suphatra stating that MS is "Working On It", it would be nice to have another update. This functionality is a must and its continuing absence is killing adoption of Teams as the "go-to app" for internal messaging...

I would like to know who has read my message?
Both in my temas and in privat chats.
