We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
Looking for something similar, if that's encompassed in a "compact" mode then great... would prefer an option for a "lite" Teams client... where it's basically chat, and the channels. All the other **** (Tabs, connectors etc) is not available... that stuff is just slowing it down. >90% of the time employees just want persistent chat. Have an option to load full blown Teams for the times when you want to do more. Right now Slack blows Teams out of the water.

Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
This request is still on the backlog.
Thank you so much for your support of the product. This request was particularly helpful and we appreciate your engagement in the surveys, comments and forum to help us design this feature. Please continue to submit ideas!
For this item, we’re making great progress. It has now entered TAP validation with a small group of tenants. Will let you know how that goes!
Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.
Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.

+1 on this feature. Need a simple way to create a task (planner or other) from a conversation i.e. employees don't want to leave the conversation screen. If it could be simplified by a slash command then that would be a bonus.
Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.
I really like the suggestion of creating an alarm on a message, so you come back to it. I’ve passed this on to our engineering team.
Meanwhile, here’s another feature you can utilize for the same purpose — use our “bookmark” button, which is in the upper right corner of every message. This will save that message or thread directly to your profile. To access your saved messages, just click your face in the upper left corner of the product. You’ll see a tab in the left rail that says “Saved.” This is like a list of little reminders.
Hope that helps! :-)
We’re pleased to confirm the Teams client for Linux will be available in preview by the end of this calendar year, enabling people who use Linux client at work or in educational institutions to collaborate with others on Teams. Users will be able to install native Linux packages in .deb and .rpm formats.
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 @.
