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.
Read receipts are fully rolled out to the public ring.

Additional function to use read receipts for chat messages in Teams
When chatting in Teams, read receipts for chat messages are available, but not for replies. I would like to have the read receipts feature for the replies.
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

It's so important feature of MS Team app. I don't understand currently who read or seen my message. Please add it soon.

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.
Yes, I would also like to be able to have a read receipt with a timestamp. It is too difficult to see if someone has read my post.
Be able to see if a person has received a message, and / or read a message!! Like Whatsapp

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
Teams should show if somebody read my message like in Skype!
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.
To use the "thumbs up" you need an agreement with your team that they will flag it. Still people can forget.
The information is already there, because MS Teams already flags read and unread messagens on channels and teams, so they just need a way to show this. Shouldn't be that complicated.
This seems redundant to https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/34819639-mark-message-as-read-directly-from-notifications. Please vote for that one to consolidate votes and hopefully get it implemented.

Read indicator for the conversation with timestamp. That will help to see if the message was read.
to see that my sent message was sent and read, so that I know the recipient read my message.
WHEN the message is read, THEN message should be marked as read.

Like with whatsapp, we can see who read the message even if they don't reply.
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...
