do not send messages when <enter> is pressed. change to another shortcut key.
I have to edit my messages several times because every time I press enter for a Carriage Return, it sends instead. I know the shortcut key for Carriage Return is SHIFT+ENTER but its not very intuitive and makes for miscommunication. Thank you for your consideration.
There needs to be an option for phone and tablet users. It's driving me nuts!!!

If you do a survey of popular applications that have messaging, I think you will find they have the option to control Enter Key behavior.
It's tough to get used to the enforced Enter to send behavior, because it is not consistent across messaging apps. There are few things as embarrassing as sending an unfinished message in a professional setting.
Please make this an optional setting.

I just started using Skype for business at my new job. Using Enter to send is causing me to send a lot of these types of messages. Please allow users to change this functionality, this is really an unacceptable design flaw for a business software. I think enough users are asking for this for it to be considered in any future updates.

Try this workaround as we await the addition of this feature in Setting so we can turn it on or off. Here it is, using the "Compose Box" and you are "Shift-Free" for the time being. ,
Note that even if you are in the Normal Box (not the Compose Box), if you start with "1." it will take the Entre into the next numeric.

This is driving me nuts. It is very easy to disable on other IM platforms...
We canceled roll out of teams because of this. I've been messaging Microsoft trying to see if we can get it fixed. Thinking of shifting to slack which is not ideal.
+1. Sending on "Return" is very annoying. I know they want to make it more "chat-like" but it is a bad UI decision.
Most chat apps don't even send on "return" key.

Ctrl + Shift + x gives you an expanded control box where ENTER does move the cursor to a new line, and Ctrl + ENTER sends the message.
It would be ideal if Ctrl + ENTER was the send key press in the normal control box.
This function was an option (probably for years) in versions prior to 18.104.22.168 and should be put back in place.
Anyone who types on a computer regularly can have an issue with the send on <enter> function. One wants to make sure you don't erroneously send incomplete or uncorrected messages.

my return key worked fine for several months. today it started to function as a send key. i did not do anything that i am aware of to change the setting. very frustrating.
Ideally there should be a way to switch 'Shift-Enter' and 'Enter' functionality OR simply just disable 'Enter sends message'. Seems very close to a deal breaker for use of the application sadly.

Yes - definitely agree that there must be an option to turn off "enter-to-send".
Shift-Enter is not intuitive, and it makes for difficult typing (and re-editing) when composing longer posts - some of which do add value.
Hi on my macbook it's is "option" and "enter" together to create a new line - I really wish there was a way to disable it permanently too

This is a duplicate of this idea: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/30990691-disable-send-message-on-pushing-enter-shift-ente
(I agree with this idea, but just forwarding others and increasing the likelihood that they will be combined, increasing the vote count)

I agree. Either Ctrl-Enter or Alt-S to send the comment.
Alt-S is the send in Outlook so why not make the same?

I really want this. Many people mistakenly send messages. Some people prefer pressing enter to send messages, but at least it should be optional.

You can use shift+enter to create a new line, see Teams shortcuts here (agree should be an option to disable enter = send): https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Keyboard-shortcuts-for-Microsoft-Teams-2e8e2a70-e8d8-4a19-949b-4c36dd5292d2

Agree, return should add a return, not send the message. Having return = send results in messages sent prematurely as people hit enter to create a new paragraph, or people don't use paragraphs and means the messages become unreadable.
This is the specially bad on tablets and mobiles, because ‘return’ is the only effective way to create a new line. I am constantly forced to delete my messages and try and enter the text again with the appropriate line spacing.
