Unique Notifications for Chat vs. Team Updates
Being a part of many teams means there are regularly updates being posted to one of them as well as chat messages. I tend to prioritize chat messages as someone is looking for a more immediate response but I find that I am constantly having to check teams because I see the notification in the start bar but the update isn't of relevance to me or a priority. The pop-ups in the lower right window can help but if you are focused or presenting you might miss them.
I would suggest we have the start bar Teams Icon have two different types of notifications to differentiate between a team update and a chat message.

Especially important as Skype is incorporated into Teams

Red for @-mentions and private chats, blue for general activity
I'm not replying to chats as quickly as I'd like to either because I can't tell the difference between their notifications or the team channel notifications in the taskbar. A lot of the stuff in the channels I can ignore or review later, while I'd like to reply to someone chatting directly at me more quickly. I can't be looking at Teams every time there's a notification as most of them don't require immediate attention; it'd be really helpful for them to have unique-looking taskbar indicators rather than being stacked together.
