Chat Banner Notification Improvements
Chat banner notifications do not need to show when I am in the Teams app and looking at a different conversation.

This is a major frustration I have. Seeing banner notifications for a chat thread that I'm currently chatting in is very distracting.

Currently the banners cover the end of the sentences of both me and the responding parties when it appears in the bottom right hand side of the screen adn as more replies are recieved it stacks upwards obscuring more of the screen - the result is a constant need to manually close the notification banners which when in group chats can be constant
There is also no option to simply choose sound only to draw attention to a new message.
Perhaps a better place for incoming notifications would be the top of the screen, using the full width of the application window rather than small blocks at the side of the screen
It is really irritating when I am in a group meeting or phone call with the chat enabled on the right side, and a banner notification pops up directly over the spot in my chat where I'm trying to type. The location of the notifications needs to move. I still want to see them, but not right over yhe top of my current chat.
If you are dialed into a different environment, banner messages are super inconvenient as they bring down what I'm working on and put focus on the banner.... Have a different option other than banner to display chat messages. I'd prefer just a blinking window a noise or something to tell me without losing focus on what I'm doing....
For real. The banner covers up my message i am typing in. And if I turn off the banner I don't get a notification sound.
