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.

Users needs it badly. They are tired calling co-workers if they have read the message or not, on both Chat and Teams.

Read receipts for group or teams (just like WhatsApp)

Glad to know you're working on it. ETA?

We have a handful in our Team site that utilize the 'Like' option letting us know when they have read a post. Not everyone cares to do so. It would be nice to see how many users have read a post even if they are not liking/commenting on it.
Hey everyone, I found this article about Read Receipts being rolled out July 2019. https://tomtalks.blog/2019/06/microsoft-teams-read-receipts-know-when-a-private-chat-message-was-read-by-the-recipients/
Recently started using teams and having to telephone people to confirm that they have received my message. Very counter productive :(
Chat has this feature for mobile devices, but my office needs it for desktop chat too. Any ETA for when this might be fully implemented?
Any update on this feature? its been 7mo already. desperately needed.
Is there a target implementation date of a read receipt/seen by option? I recently switched from Skype to Teams, and am very glad I did, but I find myself missing this option. Thanks!

Any update on this feature?
I believe read receipts is going into general release this month. The setting is now available in the Teams admin center under Messaging policies. Worth updating the status of this request Microsoft.
Microsoft Teams is an evolution of Skype, right? Skype show you read receipts, Teams no. I'm confused. Please work on it.

Can anyone share an update on where you are with developing this functionality? I believe you should raise the level of urgency. This is table stakes for all collaboration/social platforms now.
How do I downvote this? This feature is horrible. Hangouts has it. And hangouts is horrible. Please don't be horrible.

When can we see the Read Receipt for the messages in Team Communicator. is thre any ETA for it?
HI Suphatra is there any progress on this?
Please don't add this, read receipts are extremely unreliable. Just because I opened your message doesn't mean I read it, use replies to confirm they got it instead.

I saw this in Riot (matrix protocol) and was very impressed about how they did this (seeing profile pictures running down to the latest post, after it was red). +1 for this in Teams.

Lack of receipts falls short of even basic compliance requirements and gives ammunition to those recommending other solutions. Please update asap.
