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.

        Please allow us to remove users from a Chat group if they no longer need to be in it. Much more tedious to have to create a whole new Chat group again

        Please add the option to remove users from Teams chat. Our company uses this feature and now they want to remove users and our IT team can't fix this for them since its a MS issue. We want to provide the best experience for our users. Let us know when this is complete.

        Warren, how long should we wait for a solution. I have the same problem as flagged earlier below.
        This is especially important when you have a recurring team meeting and you invite someone to ONE session of the recurring meeting, you cannot remove that person from the Chat. That person continues to be able to participate in the chat session but not the actual meeting itself.

        any workaround?

        i can't imagine any argument why Microsoft decided to missed this out.

        This is a very basic feature ? wondering what did the application architect think ?

        Yep, needing this pretty quickly. It would be great to add capacity for more than 4 people on camera at a time as well.

        Please add this or atleast allow having 20+ members per chat. We cant add new members to our chats
