After everybody keeps asking to make it like Slack you still don't know what to do and need more feedback? How sad....
I'm pretty sure Discord is used more in professional environments than Teams at this point. M$ is so slow to make basic UI improvements.
For real how freaking hard is it to remove the left and right margins from the conversation view?
Our employees can't stand the layout anymore. We are switching our 300+ person company to back to Slack because it's apparently too difficult for Microsoft to get anything done.
" We spent months testing designs with users, reiterating concepts, and reading through your feedback, to make sure we could meet as many of your common needs as we could."
All you had to do was re-create Slack's compact layout....
Wow, there was a UI change and it somehow got worse.... Seriously how hard is it to do what people want and copy every other chat app? Discord, Slack, HipChat, RocketChat. They all have basically the same layout and they are the top chat platforms. Instead you guys try to do your own thing and your users hate it and we keep asking for the same thing so you keep doing different things. The people in charge really shouldn't be in charge.
Been a month now since the Twitter Q&A (useless btw, you just have to look at Slack), any update?
We continue to work towards the S4B convergence.
Official roadmap for the convergence: https://skypeandteams.blob.core.windows.net/artefacts/Skype%20for%20Business%20to%20Teams%20Capabilities%20Roadmap.pdf
Under Review for 4 months. Update?
Hate to be the bearer of bad news. This item has been declined. There will be no work to hide or remove the reply button.
As many people have commented, a big ask is to help improve how people distinguish between giving a reply and starting a new message.
For that the focus will be on this item. “Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`”
Lol at the people freaking out about the removal of an annoying button somehow meaning the removal of an entire feature. You can still have threaded messages (3 dots like Slack) and not have a massive reply button that is bigger than some messages.
This feature request is still in the works. No additional details to share at this time.
But the team is hard at work to ensure it is implemented in a fashion that will meet your expectations.
"evaluating ways we can implement this. It’s not an easy fix"
The way to implement it is the way people ask, don't pull a typical Micro$soft and implement something you think people want when they are asking for something very specific.
Also, it is kind of easy to implement. You already did it with teams so duplicate that functionality in channels. If it's not easy, you have spaghetti code.
Lol, "leave Slack and come to Teams because here at Micro$oft we don't implement what you want and do what we want instead."
This feature request is now being worked upon. As things progress I will post updates to this thread.
Thank you all for the feedback and suggestions.
This is still on the backlog. This is taking a lot of effort to dig into and determine the best solution.
No additional updates to share at the moment but I’m tracking the feature teams work closely and will keep you posted!
3) does it matter? you have people requesting the feature. As Nike states, just do it.

@Ilya, at 200 lines you should be pasting that in a text file instead of a chat message...
IMO, I would much rather see other features implemented before syntax highlighting. With plain code snippets we can get by, but other things such as compact views, meeting integrations, etc should take precedence. However, this would be a very nice feature.
Great news, this feature is now being worked upon!
As I get more feedback on the timeline and details, I will be sure to share it to this thread!
This feature request is still being actively worked upon.
No additional information is yet available but I will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
This feature is still in the works. No additional details are yet available. I’ll update this thread once I hear more.
Thank you all for the feedback!
I'm really confused why you keep coming back and asking users why they want features. Here's the deal, Slack does most of the things people keep requesting. It doesn't matter why, just make the features people ask for or else you will not get conversion from a superior application to the inferior Teams. I want to see what users are in a Team/Channel. It's not hard to do.
This item is still being worked upon. Now new updates to share at this time.
