Paste as plain text
It would be very appreciated to add "paste as plain text" as an option when pasting text.
We constantly paste code or formatted text and it's rare to want to keep the original format. I'm constantly pasting and copying into an intermediate text application to remove formatting.
We need this feature in Linux and Windows app

Yes, the text formatting is bad when coping normally, needs to be plain.

Paste as plain text needs to be added as an option on the right-click context menu. Currently the context menu only shows Cut, Copy, and Paste.
I just found out that the shortcut key combination Ctrl+Shift+V usually works to paste as plain text in Teams chat.

It should do this by default. Nobody actually wants this. Nobody will be sad that they have to use some other modifier key on top of CTRL/CMD-V.
For this new feature to be of full value, it ought to be possible to choose to have the normal paste key (CTRL-V, SHIFT insert) associated with it, so that you do not have to think about format or anything before pasting in what you yourself, in the back of your mind, are regarding as (unformatted) text.
