There needs to be permissions on channels
This is hugely important as 1 team may have multiple levels of engineers on different levels.
Note, this is a built in feature of Slack.
Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.
I agree with comments bellow, access restriction @ channel level is a must! I can't believe that it's not available from the very start.

is there an idea on timing of when this feature may be available? My organization is newer to Teams and I'll setting up the structure for ongoing projects. The three immediate opportunities I see for valuable development are (1) adding ability to control permissions at channel level, (2) adding the ability to archive at the channel level, and (3) the ability to convert channels to Teams. Greatly appreciate any information you can provide on whether these initiatives are in the pipeline, and ranking/estimated timing of deployment. Thanks!
Can you tell me why "age" is required to complete a survey on features?
I've figure out a work around
We need select people in some channels for discussing content or providing feedback. This content should not be visible to others.

This permission management at the channel level is mandatory for us to not have a huge number of teams created for nothing
Please to work on it
Yes, I belive this is a must feature for TEAMS
Has this been enabled? Can you assign security to lock out certain channels in a team site?

Please also add your vote here which already has higher support - same or related feature: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16911079-support-for-private-channels

This 'Channel Permissions Granularity' -and- the ability to invite external guest users (with only a 'Microsoft' Azure ID needed)- into a Teams team site, Teams team site channel, Planner plan - all are vital to keeping Microsoft's cloud floating on high - competition will not sit back and let their market lead erode / market opportunity slip though their fingers!
So, Microsoft, please enjoy the seasonal festivities, and then get a wiggle on, my organisation needs both 'Channel Permissions Granularity' and 'Teams External Guest Access' (sans any need for any 'licence' for lite users, with access secured via an Azure ID) - ASAP.
Is there any updates on this, this is massively important for our organisation.
Also highlighting this is on Slack

It is a must to define permissions per channel.
this is very important for our organisation working with a wider team, we need a channel that is just certain users and see and be involve in
