LaTeX math input
Allow LaTeX math input into the Teams interface for Education customers.
Currently Edmodo allows some simple LaTeX code (as complex as those that amsmath package recognises!)
Great suggestion for all STEM classes! I’ve moved this feature to ‘under review’.

It would be great if the Teams messaging function supported inline LaTeX math, e.g. $\frac{\lambda}{2\cdot\pi}$

Currently I am using the latex support in Microsoft Word as a work around for this. I clicked the add tab in teams chat and used a Word file for that tab. If all participants have edit permission to that file, they can jot down any formatted equations into that file and use it as an adhoc chatbox.

I agree with the author; math formatting is sorely lacking. I need to be able to edit math formulas. I'm in college right now, and I need it to study. I use this site https://plainmath.net to learn theory and find examples. There is a lot of information about solving equations. And it's elementary to write formulas; you can develop something similar.

I switched to Teams when we switched to remote learning & I love it  so much so that I'm going to continue using it after we return to campus (someday). However, the lack of equation editor in chat & online class notebooks is a real downside for those of us who teach STEM courses.

+1 please add some kind of equation editor at least, otherwise team is bascially useless for my group

Is this it?

I think LaTeX support would really make me love MS Teams

Here's a workaround. Use:
https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php
Then rightclick on the image, select "copy image" and the paste it into team chat (ctrl+v).

I'm a mathematics teacher and I use Teams to teach my classes. Often during a live video lesson, students would ask questions in Chat. I found it difficult to answer because I can't embed formulae. I found a way to type LaTex save the image and paste it in the chat. This is not very efficient and it would greatly help if I could embed fornulae either using an equation editor or LaTeX.
Thanks a lot.

Another request for this functionality. This is a pain point at our institution with respect to math and computer science classes.

Hesham Alammal commented
Yes, this would be a great feature to have. I am teaching students and discussing things on Teams with math is really hard right now.

please implement this

I also am in favour of this.

Please integrate LaTeX into Teams  it's not just helpful, but is necessary, for engineering.

I would be very much in favour of this!

Being able to put LaTex math into Teams Rich Text Editor would solve so many problems.

excellente idée, les maths sont toujours négligées sur les logiciels de travail d'équipe, de discussion

Anil Ganti commented
Please just incorporate Mathjax.
