Group messages by same person on channel
When sending messages in channels, they should be grouped into the same bubble if sent by the same person. If one person hits 5 times to send different messages, each goes on its bubble with its "Reply" option and that takes A LOT of space.
I think all subsequent messages for the same user (at the same date/time up to the minute) should be grouped in the same bubble, and the Reply arrow can be moved to the right (or left) of each message.
Please... implement this feature and stop killing people souls. We are almost in 2020... time for group same person messages, right?
Agree. In addition Reply button takes to much space. It shouldn't be placed under the message (on the top right?)

Agree. really annoying. especially when moving from Slack to Teams.
I agree. More specifically, each message should still be treated as a separate message, but if the messages are sent consecutively and no other user has said anything inbetween, they should be grouped together in the interface, so with just a single profile icon etc. However each message should still be able to be replied to / interacted with as normal, using the standard hover-over interaction menus.
