Ability to hide or minimize gifs (at user level)
I like a lot about Teams. However, one of the nice features of your main competitor is that on things like GIFs you can minimize them. GIFs are fun, but after the initial fun they are annoying to keep seeing auto playing in the feed. So a way to minimize them in the feed would be great.
This feature request is still being reviewed by the feature team.
When an animated GIF is in a channel or conversation for awhile can be distracting. Please allow users to hide or minimize any image or video in a chat or conversation.

I agree with this idea. I also have moments when gifs are being spammed that I wish I could hide or minimize them.
This would be a pretty nice edition. I have coworkers who like to spam me with gifs when they're bored, other chat tools like Flowdock allow me to hide these.
Oh yeah, Alasdair is the coworker I'm talking about incase you were wondering...
It's no fun if you can't spam your coworkers with gifs that they can't hide!
Love the animated gifs, but would like for them to not be active for old/inactive conversations. Can be too much on a gif heavy page.
