Get rid of the "reply" button!!
You shouldnt have to click on reply button each and every time you want to reply to a thread. it would be a better design if you can just start typing.

"Hide Reply" was denied, but they are working on a way to make the reply button easier to differentiate from the button to start a new conversation https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/19224826

I found this feedback because I was looking for feedback to up-vote that says, "Make reply button way more prominent." we have people ALL THE TIME creating new conversations to say things like, "Done," or "Me too," or some other reply to a main topic, but instead of replying into the thread they are starting new conversations. Still looking for that feedback or will create own if I can't find. Those of you who don't want to have a "reply" button - why don't you want threaded conversations?
yes totally agreed. Why do I see reply all the time. Typing a new message is already a reply...

In general the visual design of Teams needs to be trimmed down, minimised and made more obvious and less talky/showy. It needs more natural UI and less obvious UI.
I think this is a duplicate of this suggestion, which is already in "Working on it" status: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16925779-hide-the-reply-button-under-every-message
