@everyone in Chat
Ability to notify everyone in a CHAT thread with the @everyone tag is needed.
It's incredible this is still missing. Please add.
Basically a must when we have several chat windows/threads..I dont communicate with my whole team on a daily basis..Need this on the chats
Broadcasting a message on a chat is necessary in certain circumstances... and should be used cautiously. But please don't add another layer of authorisation to prevent people from using a useful feature... just use it sensibly!?

When we have meetings with 50 people and we post a follow up message they should all see we should have an @everyone or @all so they can all be alerted.

indeed a must, it makes no sense that we can @ each member and even @ every single one, one by one, and not have the option to just do @everyone.

need this function! the artificial separation of regular chat and team chat in MS Teams in annoying to begin with as it leads to unnecessary switching between tabs. So if you do this, atleast let me tag everyone with an @everyone or @here in the regular chat.
For me the key question is: who is 'everyone'? Who will be authorised to use @everyone in chat or Teams?
Yammer already has the powerful 'announcement' feature, with strictly limited authorisations in order to avoid mis use ....
I really appreciate the smart way of communicating, which is driven via Teams. I dislike spamming and information overload.
I can imagine in selected cases an @everyone message is needed (so with limited authorisations), but not as a default option ...... Even in Yammer it's restricted (and Microsoft made a good decision there as well ...).
The more you use TEAMS and meetings the more you need this, else I may as well use GOM.
Good old Mail!

THIS IS A MUST! We need this ASAP!
This is a must, we don't always communicate in channels or teams. most of the time we create ad-hoc chat threads on the fly to tackle specific issues. I can't believe it's been three years and MS didn't even acknowledge the request. Well, actually, I do believe it.

Yes, this needs to be a thing. How can I vote this up a million?
I jump between Teams, Slack, and Discord everyday and was surprised this is not a thing. The function already lives in the Teams code stack so I wonder why this is going unanswered. You don't know what you don't know, but could someone from Microsoft please chime in?
Stu Wood commented
This is a must have to compete with other apps like Slack, Discord, Mattermost. Currently the only way to mention everyone is in a "Team" which is clunky and does not encourage discourse.
Douglas Morris commented
Please, if Discord can figure this out certainly Microsoft can.

This feature would be very helpful. I hope MS Teams' team will look into this since many users feel the need for this feature. Cheers!

3 years later and such a simple idea hasn't even been acknowledged... but let's keep rolling out Bot AI features...

Do want. How about "@all" (less typing mo' better!)
