This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
This is currently in internal testing rings at Microsoft, and the feature team is targeting a release to the public in early Q2.

We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.Michael Todd commented
After pushing my team to migrate from Slack, and only reading through the first page of this, the answer seems kind of obvious:
Copy what Slack has already done so well. A channel is the entire conversation, but users can respond directly to a message. The default method for replying to the conversation is to use the large text entry field at the bottom of the screen (where Teams has the New Conversation entry field). To reply directly to another user in Slack, you must create a conversation directly with an existing message (where Teams has the Reply button).
Currently, the interface feels more like Yammer than Slack. Microsoft Partners are positioning Teams as an option to Slack, and corporations are anticipating being able to deprecate their Slack accounts in favor of something already bundled in their MS subscriptions. So what functionality does this product rival? Yammer or Slack? At the very least give Admins the ability to set affinity for Yammer or Slack style replies.
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
if you have an existing post that you want to show in a different channel, you can edit the message and cross-post. This will add the top-level post to the different channel, but will not include the full set of replies. We will keep this request in mind as we evolve the cross-posting feature in the future and update if the status changes.

The feature team is still considering this item. No confirmation yet.

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!
The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity
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!
Hi guys, turns out that we put this on the previous release notes but it actually isn’t releasing until this week.
I’m really sorry! I hope you all weren’t too affected.
Some of you have pinged me individually on this, I’ll make sure to let you know on email/Twitter too. I’ll update this item back to complete once the feature is out.
Thank you so much for your feedback and engagement, and please keep helping us make this product great!
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.
