How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

    Teams > Settings > General > Register Teams as the chat app for Office (requires restarting Office applications) does NOT work.
    However, if you install S4B on the client as well you get all the features - chatting, calling and presence from Outlook using Teams

    this is now fixed - Teams > Settings > General > Register Teams as the chat app for Office (requires restarting Office applications)

    It is very unfortunate to release software before basic functionality is in place. In general, Teams go too fast. It is not mature at all until it is released. Too bad when Microsoft does so much right these years.

    Will this be working for federated tenants as well.
    I have 3 federated domains in my tenants and would like to see their presence from my tenant outlook contacts.

    Can you please update this response to indicated that this is now resolved? It appears to be working now. In Teams in settings there is check box. A few others have also commented this below.

    Has this not been included in the Mac version? I don't see "Register Teams as the chat app for Office" in my Teams settings.

    It would be appreciated if you can add an option to change status as offline similar to Skype 2010/16 etc.

    It seems the issue can be resolved by checking box "Register Teams as the chat app for Office" from Teams client --> Settings --> General
