Is there any update on this? This should 100% without a doubt at least be in planned phase.

Since a Team allows 999 participants and they can chat in that just fine I don't really understand why group chats are capped at 20 participants. Group chats should have the same cap as the amount of people that can be in a Team in my opinion.
Hi everyone, I know we are overdue for the next update. I’m hounding our Meetings team trying to get a new ETA for you. I’ll ping you immediately once I get it!
Thanks for your patience, and your support. Tweet me if you have any questions: @skprufo.
Hi everyone, thanks for your comments in this thread, tweets, emails and calls. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions at all; I’m here for YOU! I’ll continue to update this ticket as we make progress towards MSA.
Just in case you missed it, there is a FAQs in the Guest Access Help Article. Just click the “FAQs” tab here: https://aka.ms/GuestAccessHelp We’re updating them this week with new questions we’ve been getting, like “Is Guest Access available for Business Essentials licenses?” (The answer is yes.)
Lastly, the team is starting work on Federation so I’ve broken out Federation into its own UserVoice ticket. Please vote and subscribe to updates on its progress here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/20566714
Hey everyone, just wanted to check in and let you know that this (the feature to delete a chat thread) is almost out of Design. I’ll let you know once it goes into Engineering. Not too much longer now!
Thanks for your support, and hope everyone is having a nice week.
Hi everyone, it looks like this got put as “declined” — I actually have a best practice on my team to NEVER put anything as declined (you’ll see some older tickets have that, that was before my time, folks). So I’m sorry this got slipped through — its not a decline, for the very reason that Mark points out below.
Also special thanks to Andreas for seeing the activity on this closed item and bringing it to my attention.
And thank you to all of YOU for helping us makes Teams better!
Start off your weekend with good news: we’re working on this!
Thanks to everyone who brought this feature to the forefront and shared feedback on their use case scenario. Very helpful!
I wrote some more product updates on today’s Teams blog in my weekly column, “Weekend Reading” —
