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.

Waiting on this feature as well. Any status updates as to when we can expect to see it?
UserVoice = Not care?

Would be great to have a feature to know if someone has read your message in a chat.
The way facebook does it makes it really easy to tell who's read up to what point.
"A small version of your friend or contact's photo will pop up below the message when they've read it"
Long overdue for an Admin update here. Please provide an ETA or status update.

Not so actively. Classic Microsoft lies :)
It is working in Privat-Chats but we need it in Group-Chats to see if everybody got&saw the Infos there.

How is this feature still not implemented? The last update was November 1st, 2018, with the initial request being put in November 2016!
That's so long ago for what you would think is a very simple feature.
The official Microsoft Teams twitter also tweeted saying read receipts are being "added this month" in July of 2019, yet it's now mid-September with the feature still not working.
There's even a setting in the Teams admin panel that does NOTHING.
any progress on this feature?
Alex tech commented
really looking forward to this! That way you can rest assured the message was seen and it is not your responsibility anymore to chase the person

Feature is available in the Admin panel but no functionality still ! no change in desktop or mobile apps.
Hangouts already does this, time to catch up Teams!!!
Any update on this?
Please add a fourth option in Teams Admin Center > "Messaging Policies" > "Read Receipts" to not have that enabled by default but can be turned on by the end user manually. By turning on this policy by default this would be an efficiency control of our users and we need an approval first.
But we are also waiting for this feature because a lot of users are asking for that. I can see that in my pre-version working already.
4-September-2019 and this features STILL doesn't work!? @Suphatra where can we see progress on this?

Supposedly implemented by not functioning. This is one of the main reasons my staff still use Outlook to send internal memos, because they don't know if colleagues have read it when sent via Teams. Let's have an update please
