Mute or leave a group chat
Have a possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received fora user that chooses to mute some group chat. Also let me be able to leave it completely if I want to.
“Leave a chat” is currently in our Ring 1 for internal testing, so you’ll see it soon once it passes our validation tests.
“Must a chat” is on the backlog, so we haven’t started work on this yet.
Hope you’re enjoying your July!
This is AWFUL we need to be able to leave these groups!!! Functionality fail! Thanks!

Unbelievable that this isn't day 1 functionality. This is still a beta in my opinion and a poor one at that.
I found a temporary work around for this. Just take screenshots of the comments on this page and start posting them to said group chat you can't get out of. That seems to correct the issue, if only temporarily.

It's nice to know that it's being worked on, but how does this happen? For example, Outlook for Android is just now getting the ability to create and modify contacts. Such a basic feature took over a year to be implemented. These sorts of things aren't nice to haves, they're normal assumed features found in everyday versions of the same apps. This is an enterprise application. Based on the comments, this seems like a make and break feature for many.
so how do we get out? is owner able to kick us out? delete teams app from phone?
I would do literally anything to leave these chats. I am dying and Microsoft teams will be what murdered me
I'll add my voice that this should be a very high priority...using this tool as our main communique and not having this option causes havok from an Admin perspective. Hope Ring 1 is almost done!!!
You check out any time you like but you can never leave
Where is the testing for this feature? We have several users that get mistakenly added to group chats and then we have no way of removing them. It's unacceptable if you can't freely leave unnecessary / accidental chat groups.

Enabling the same scheme as teams (follow/unfollow) seems like it would have made a lot of sense from the get go...
Holy.. please fix this.. im being bombarded with irrelevant chats at work
Can we please have an update on this.
Is this completed yet? We have chat rooms getting "spammed" and no way to leave.
How did Teams even get released without mute... It forces me to close the application. Having used Slack and Discord, Teams is appalling. The gif feature also features NSFW gifs for normal queries. I'm considering uninstalling soon.

received a message it is done. Can't see it after an update. How can I use it, Suphatra?
1. Can't mute/leave conversations
2. Close Teams and never open it again
OH MY GOD PLEASE HURRY. I am trapped in the Dilbert equivalent of Saw 8.
I'm going to recommend that our team go back to using HipChat until this is fixed.
Please fix this ASAP. It's ridiculous that the group chat feature was even launched without the option to exit it.

@Suphatra Typo in "Must a chat" :)
