How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Allow removal of people from Group Chats

Once a person is added to a group chat. You cannot remove them. You must create a new chat and lose all the history.

        Has this change been made yet? I am trying to do the same and don't see the ability to remove members from my Team's group chat.

        The year is 2030. Most cars are driving themselves, physical money doesn't exist anymore. We can travel from Montreal to Tokyo within six hours thanks to new transport technologies. The sun is shining, birds are singing. You get to the office, and have to start a new group chat again, because you still can't remove people from the original one if need be.

        Life is good.

        This is quite bothering when someone accidentally added a user that is not suppose to join the group chat, and no one can kick the user out. Winter is ending soon, so is this ready yet?

        Please.. just a little status update.
        The lack of this basic feature is holding our deployment back.

        Is "this" contextual? Did you mean winter 2018? Or were you pointing at 2019 in a calendar but forgot to share a photo? Or perhaps you live in Australia and thus winter is in fact May 2019? Oh! The suspense! And the poor people who are still getting spammed with my teams group chat even though they left my team up to 7/8 months ago! And will somebody please THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

        Any updates? I'd like to be able to remove people from a group chat.

        If you want a running group of people in a chat, you should probably make a Team and no just a Group Chat.

        This seems to be stone age technology where once you've started chiseling into the side of a cave it's there forever. Editing is one of the attractive features when sending a message.

        1) When starting a new group chat that's still in draft mode I can't even edit (delete) any of the participants after they been added.

        2) When starting a new group chat that's still in draft mode I can't backtrack and delete the draft.

        This is absolutely annoying and impedes me wanting to use Microsoft Teams for a free flow exchange of ideas. To repeat, editing is one of the attractive features when sending a message in any format. PLEASE FIX THIS!!

        I vote for this feature, sometimes unknowingly add wrong persons and cannot uno Thanks!

        Surely it's almost ready? I have a hard time figuring out what is taking so long for such a basic option.
