This feature request is still on in the backlog. No new updates available at this time.
Hate to be the bearer of bad news. This item has been declined. There will be no work to hide or remove the reply button.
As many people have commented, a big ask is to help improve how people distinguish between giving a reply and starting a new message.
For that the focus will be on this item. “Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`”
So happy to share that this is off the backlog and we are actively working on it!
We are still considering this feature for future releases, and will continue to update the status when it changes.

The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.
I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.
Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.
Thank you for all the feedback and support!
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.

Working with teams is very unpleasant visually.
You definitely need to create a compact view.
Individual blocks distract, there is too much space below and above text, too much space taken by new conversation box and the worse is the huge reply button and block.
Very unpleasant to look at and good enough reason to go back to alternatives for now.
Try this as a test:
Look at the screen quickly and try to focus on the messages and replies.
It is impossible to take a quick look and get your eye to fall on the actual messages. The closest thing to what is needed is the high contrast theme but inverted.
