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.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.
This work is officially in the plans now. We will update as we have more information for you.
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.
Hi guys! Thanks for submitting this. I totally hear you and have experienced this as well.
The good news is, we’re actively working on this. We recently pushed an update that improved performance when channel switching and scrolling. So this should be considerably better for you.
We’ll continue to make improvements on performance, so stay tuned for updates.
Keep the suggestions coming and thank you for helping us make Teams awesome!
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.
This item remains on the backlog.
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

We have the same problem. It's very annoying. Even if we disabled every Skype component in our Office plan for the users the message appears.
Please fix this.
