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.

My number one criticism of the UI is that there is just too much going on at the "one click away" level. This takes up screen real estate and distracts from the important stuff, the chat. All of the extra features, e.g. Files, Notes, distinguishing between teams and chats, and meetings are great but feel like secondary actions that wouldn't be a problem hidden behind a menu. There is also a lot of confusion created by being able to have nested teams and sub-chats and the UI elements including additional headers that have to be in place to support them.
We've come a long way from IRC/"Buddy List" simplicity but still use the application for the purpose of finding and talking to someone. Keep that part simple. Within the chat window itself the additional formatting, colored text boxes, icons and spacing make it very difficult to read. (Hence the cry for "compact".)
Slack, HipChat and Discord have all done a better job than this app in addressing these UI concerns but the Teams feature set and Office 365 integration is so much more compelling. So please take this in to consideration. This is an app that I could see changing for the better the way our company works but will need these UI issues addressed before I will *want* to use it.
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.
