Continue chatting when uploading large files
when i try to upload a large file, can it continue uploading much like whatsapp and allow me to continue chatting with team members. much like whatsapp with a upload fail notification so i can retry.
my boss is waiting for me to send him a file, i should be able to notify him it is uploading yet, i sit and just watch mu chat box locked from me helplessly

I found that this locking of chat box is blocking my workflow as well. When you are in a support session with others, and you would like to send them some files like 10MB each to try things out quickly, you would constantly need to wait the uploading to complete before continue the chat which is not ideal.
Is there a reason of why one will need to wait the file uploading to complete before continue the chat?
Also after the file uploaded, Teams sits there and wait for you to press the "Send" button - this user interaction is different from other instance messaging application like Skype, WhatApp and WeChat and so on. I would expect the file to be received by the opponent immediately and automatically after its uploaded. The current implementation of requiring extra confirmation by enforcing the user to click "Send" seems like an overhead to me
