How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Please create a professional compact chat layout!

I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    We are still working on this. There won’t be one huge update, but instead we will release small updates over time which will help with the request.

    There are two things in particular we are focusing on. One being an increase in density and two, a more compact mode.

    “Density” would be a reduction of the overall white space you see on your screen.
    “Compact” would be more about a reduction in overall size which is most beneficial to smaller screens and mobile devices.

    I would be interested in seeing in the comments which piece feels more important to you all. The density or compact view?

    If you could comment and let me know, it would be helpful information to provide to the feature team!

    Thank you for all your suggestions and feedback!

    -Warren
