Show new messages without scrolling
Now: After receiving a new message you have to scroll down to see it.
Wish: Please show this new message without scrolling down or click any button directly

This is incredibly bad design, almost unusable. While it makes sense if you are near the bottom if you are not it is terribad to use.
Case: I am replying to a post several days earlier. I completed or leave as draft when I see "New Messages" notification. Click on it, Team scrolls up agooooonissiiiniinglllly sloooooowly, loading every item, even worse over low-bandwidth connection. This could be hundreds or thousands of messages, gifs, pictures and other attachments, all of which have to be downloaded and rendered.
I have waited _minutes_ to scroll, and you can't just abort and go to channel because then all new messages are cleared, you have no idea what was just posted. I have a channel where it is common to have 100+ messages unread, you can't just read from bottom up on that.
"New messages" should (optionally) instantly leap to that point with that message at the top of the window. Boom, done.
If you want to have an intelligent design for better UX, then calculate how many messages will need to scrolled past. If it's more than threshold value or would take more than five seconds, just jump automatically.
Also, why is there no CTRL-END shortcut to leap to the end of the current channel?

I don't know why this suddenly got worse, but it's super annoying right now. Even when I've got Teams open and in focus it will not always autoscroll to the latest message. Please always show the latest message. I'll scroll back up to see what I missed the 1% of the time I actually have to do that.
Just to be sure, I updated to the latest version as of today ("You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.1.00.10955 (64-bit). It was last updated on 5/4/18."). The issue is still present.
