As the last status states, we have been testing for several months. Although many people have asked for this feature, we received a similar amount of feedback from other users that they prefer the Teams notifications and don’t want them changed. We are currently testing a feature for users to choose between Teams notifications & Windows notifications.
We will update you as work progresses.

The Teams notifications wouldn't be so bad if they were more customizable - with Windows notifications, you can set how many seconds they hang out in the corner, but with Teams there seems to be no way to configure this, and I've timed it at 15 whole seconds for me in Windows! (I'm surprised to see it's 5 seconds for some people, I guess it's different on phones...? I wish 2 seconds were an option, though...)
Adding any emoji as a reaction remains under review.
I am marking this as partially done to let you know a new reactions bar with Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Angry has begun rolling out to all users.
