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!
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
This item is still under review by the feature team. I have no details as to when a decision might happen.
So happy to share that this is off the backlog and we are actively working on it!
Thanks to everyone who volunteered for testing the Office 365 group calendar. The TAP team will be reaching out as we are closer to being ready.

Yes still needed, you really shouldn't be asking if this is still needed - just look at the vote count, that should be enough to tell you.
This request is still queued within our backlog. No new details yet.
Updating the status to “Try this instead” and have added the clarification that after 30 days the name is once again available.
The reason for this decision was that Channels can be restored 30 days after being deleted. During this time, we intentionally don’t support creating a channel with the same name. After the 30 days, the name is available.
You can workaround this by restoring a deleted channel, renaming it, and then deleting the channel again. The previous name is then available for use.
This workaround has already been mentioned in the comments and if an immediate reuse of a Channel Name is required, this is the recommended solution.
