Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.
I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.
Guys, it's only been like 15 months, give them time to reply, sheesh!

We need this same thing. We have remote users that can't handle the bandwidth of these desktop updates after downloading.
This item remains on the backlog.
There will always be needed features, and yes, this is one of the THE top requested ones for 2.5 years, so you think it would be a priority. But more concerning, as others have stated, is the lack of updates and responsiveness on these tickets. We are not talking about buried issues that have 10 votes. This one is the #6 most requested feature, and hasn't had an update in 8 months. The number 1 issue on Teams user voice (private channels) has had 1 update in 6 months, and that was to say that the Microsoft associate assigned to it had left the company. Wow.
Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.
We have raised the priority of this work item, and it is currently being worked on. We don’t have any dates to share at this point, but will update when we have new status. Thank you!
I’m happy to share that the team has started exploring designs for this feature.
This is not really a solution. Teams chat should be no different than email. I can delete emails if I want, and they go to trash, and then to recoverable, and eventually go away. If there are legal holds or other reasons to keep them, then retention policies take care of that. Today our users can delete an email message and when it makes it's way through the trash and recoverable it goes away for good. Teams should be the exact same way!
This continues to be on our backlog due to prioritization of other work items. We will update when there is more to share.
As others have said, as Teams develops in our company, the layout and organization changes with the projects. We have channels that used to be part of one team that isn't needed anymore, but the channel still is. There are lots of other use cases as well.
We are happy to share that this is in testing, and expected to release in the next quarter.
I created a ticket with Microsoft on this, but they said they didn't think it was possible. But does anyone know of a way with Powershell to be able to tell WHEN a picture was last updated? My thought is that I could check once a week and see what pictures were updated so I could change them back and warn the user. This would at least be a workaround until this feature is implemented!
This has caused some issues with us as well. Allowing users to update a picture this way has caused our security group to pause the rollout of Teams. Saying "most likely 2018" is not very comforting!
Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.
We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.
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.
The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
