Sadly, work on this has stopped and been reprioritized. It is on the backlog for now.
I’m sorry folks! I’ll continue to include this in my internal reporting as a highly requested user item.

Get the top 10 requested changes done and get rid of Skype for Biz altogether. How about that?
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.
Please drop everything else and get this done right now!

Hi folks, its been a while since I updated this popular request, so wanted to give you an update.
We’re making some overall changes to the UI/UX so we’ll approve your clicking and flow for sure. As for making “Teams” and “Chat” the same tab, that is not likely to come with this first shipment of design changes. However, it is NOT off the table.
Thanks as always for your feedback, patience, and your help in making Teams better and better.
