Fix pasting of images
Pasting images is somewhat supported - see https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16925587-ability-to-paste-images) but is not correctly implemented (at least on Windows).
Using Google Chrome, if I right click on any image on a webpage and select "Copy Image", I can not paste it into Teams. I can paste this on competitors products, such as HipChat and of course into MS Paint.
There are different issues pasting from other browsers. Edge and IE both paste a blank image. Firefox has similar behavior to Chrome (nothing is pasted at all).
This is a very common use case - pasting an image from a web page. Please make it work!
You should experience significant improvements in copy & paste of images within Teams, as well as to & from Teams. We are aware of a few remaining issues, but the most common cases are resolved.
Thanks again for your patience on this one.
This is broken again. Tried today to copy and paste an image from Chrome and nothing would paste when hitting ctrl+v. I am getting images to paste when copied from IE but the image shows as broken to the person receiving the image.

I pasted a screenshot earlier today from SnagIt, then a few minutes later, it didn't work.

This is broken again. Pasting from Paint works, but Chrome or Edge does not.

I'm having trouble with the windows client today doing this very thing.
