I’m excited to share that I got to use this in our experimental settings the other day. We’ve built it and are testing it internally. I’ll let you know once it moves up in the validation rings!
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.

We've just starting moving our team over to Teams and one of the first remarks of feedback was the screen real estate takes up, it's just not efficient/flexible enough.
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 @.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
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.
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`”
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
The feature team is still considering this item. No confirmation yet.

Entirely agree with you David
Slack history retention is definitely high on the agenda here when evaluating Teams; not to mention third party application integration (salesforce.com, Twitter and GitHub to name just three...all exist but in very limited form currently it would appear)
Thanks for flagging for the Microsoft team to consider
