Slack has a "channel details" information sidebar that you can optionally turn on. One of the sub-categories there is showing members and current online status icon. When having conversations in channels, it is very useful to be able to see who from the team is currently online/offline so you can see who to expect to join in on conversation for topic being discussed. In MS teams, you have to jump to chat screen or type a person in search box to see if they are online currently. NOT EFFICIENT
The windows desktop app is not showing a red dot/notification of notification of message waiting in another tenant view (e.g. guest access elsewhere). The browser seems to show the red notification dot, but not the desktop app. This is a critical flaw and needs to be fixed. Otherwise you are depending on email notifications and though you eventually find out, it loses the "instant" in instant messaging!!!
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.

Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.
Going back in time (scrolling up in a chat) is so dreadful. Each screenful of information you have to wait for it to appear. I could see waiting for images to download. But when the conversation is all text waiting is just perplexing and a terrible UX.
You really need to add option to jump into chat at the point in time of the selected result. You can see the date of the matching result. However, when you jump out of search back to chat it is a dreadful experience to scroll up a chat history page by page if the result is far in the past!!!

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!
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!
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
