If you have any questions or more to share about Skype, just submit feedback here or tweet to me at @skprufo.
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.
We’re updating our command library all the time, so keep checking the menu in the command box to see what’s new by typing / or @.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

When using P2P chat the dependency on Skype for Business is confusing. Many times I can't chat with a person if they're only using Teams and are logged out of S4B. It would be preferable to not have this dependency at all so that I can just use Teams as a standalone client with history for both channels and 1-1 chat.
We are working on a design with more density in mind. Until this design is solidified we are putting this item back to Under Review.
This request is still being considered by the feature team but a final decision has not yet been made. I’m still awaiting more details.
