Provide option for storing version history for Team files
SharePoint can store file version history. Since Team files are stored in SharePoint, please surface the version history within Teams.
This request has been approved and has now moved to the backlog!
Stay tuned for further updates.

i hope this is a similar function just like BOX, where the latest file is visible and that every time i upload the document with the latest changes or amendment into Team, the same file name remains and yet the version changes. An option to check the file storage history is definitely a must for anyone who wanted to know what are the changes made and who has done the changes. This is a good function as it helps to housekeep the documents in a tidy manner.

Sill on the backlog? 4 years?

Would also love to be able to revert to a prior version

This is a much needed feature, I get this question from clients all the time, especially during MS Teams demonstrations.
Any updates on when this is going to happen @warren?
any update since the April 26, 2018 from Warren on this?
I'll be honest, I love the new Files tab now it surfaces most of the functionality from SharePoint (which I only received yesterday). However, it's missing the options to view a document's version history or Publish as a major version. This means our users will still have to 'Open in SharePoint' to properly manage their files which is a massive shame. I don't understand why all other SharePoint functionality has been brought into Teams but not these. Please could you get these included ASAP.
It would also be nice to be able to add short comments to a version.

To expand on this suggestion, please provide the ability to choose which SP metadata fields are displayed in the Teams Apps. (maybe something like we do when selecting fields for display in a SP View)

We do understand that versions are tracked, its just not showing in the UI of the files tab in Teams, please add to the menu for files.
