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.

Same here no functionality after turning it on
This feature is so much needed. one is not sure if the other person has already seen it. atleast it needs to be implemented in 1:1 to begin with. WebEx Teams does it so well and was very useful in my past job

Feature is enabled by default in Admin Centre, yet not functioning in the client or web. Is there an additional level of configuration required?

I have also had this feature enabled in my admin center but is not working on any of our desktop clients.

Can we have a feature included in MS teams where it should show "Read Receipt" or "Seen" once we send a message to someone?
It would be very helpful to see who has read a message

currently we can't see who is user in the group chat that already read our posted message.
also in personal chat, we can't see if the recipient has read our messages.
how to detect the read receipt status ,without limitation (example we have 100 group members in the Group chat, all of the users can be detected if reads the messages).
it is not enough if only have to response using Like button or emoticon response.
I see they tweeted this feature is available, but it is not functioning. I've tested on my iPhone. Has anyone successfully gotten this to work?
Really confusing to show the option in the admin center and not actually having the functionality ready for use... Hide the option in the admin center and show it only if turning it on or off actually turns it on or off !

Is this the same thing https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-AMA/Read-Receipt-to-Conversations/m-p/226563 ?
I fail to understand how this incredibly useful feature in Skype was dropped when converted to TEAMS....
Do we know something about this? We have it enabled for everyone but it makes no difference at all at the time.
Any news ?
This feature is preventing us from moving from other messaging/ collaboration services. Due to our organisation's dynamics this is an important feature to us both in 1:1 / groups chats and teams / channels.
When will this be available?
hide read messages option is an excellent idea
This feature was announced and should be launched, but it is not. When will it be available?

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?
As a messenger user, I want to see that my sent message was read, so that I know the recipient read my message.
GIVEN Teams Messenger is open and I sent a message, WHEN the message is read, THEN I should see a notification that my message was read.
