Allow external users to access group chat
Why isn't it possible to add external users to group chat? It's a big step backwards comparing to Skype for Business and it makes life more difficult for companies working with various clients on a daily basis.
Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to announce the next step in our journey for External Access support as we enable you to start a group chat with up to 250 participants across different organizations. The team is testing this internally, and it is important to note that you will have to be enabled by admin policy for External Access in order to be able to use this new functionality. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
has this bug been corrected yet?
Agree this is needed right now. No teams are fully internal any more in these days and need to be able to work seemlessly with external contacts
We need this feature asap, I need to add external contacts to a group chat with internal people from the org.

We need this feature!
We are also facing the same issue. We have 24x7 NOC and for our customers then can reach our team by using skype for business group chat for any kind of critical situation. But once we migrate to Teams we lost that option and we are facing lot of trouble.
