End to end encryption
End to end encryption so that chats are secure and private. Obviously only enabled under certain circumstances and for certain groups/users but it is necessary for sensitive discussions around legal or security matters, ie sharing passwords.
Per recent NSA guide, E2EE is not available in teams. What is the plan to implement?

You can't really say a product is secure until it has E2EE support. Please make it available in Teams, at least as a Private Chat feature, like private tab in browsers.
need E2EE, keybase is a pain to manage :)
End to end should include the stored content not just the transport, HTTPS. So some sort of closed group shared key would be an example, so a sys-admin can not access the stored chat conversations for sensitive matters.
Yes, end to end encryption is a must.
Slack does not seem to care. End to end encryption should matter to everyone who wants a secure messaging platform.

I'd be interested at least in a diagram that illustrates all the involved connections. I would imagine absolutely everything that Teams client does is through HTTPS connections. Does that count as "end to end"? That doesn't cover, at least, "data at rest" .
I voted up any way, though this may be satisfied with just a well documented and well communicated statement that "hey guys, we already have that! its built-in!" if that is really so.
