      Hi everyone,

      I’m Gino and I’m the Product Manager that’s been hard at work to bring you a more compact chat design. First, I really want to thank you for your patience while we worked on this request. 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.

      Secondly, I’m really happy to announce the changes that will be rolling out soon. We’ve made product-wide improvements to the UI that give you greater overall density. Here are some things you’ll see:
      - Left rail more condensed vertically
      - Gutters reduced
      - Line heights reduced
      - Emojis will be smaller
      - Links for inline attachments

      Please note that these changes will first ship on desktop, then later mobile. I’ll keep checking this forum to read your feedback as you experience the new…

      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 got a flood of feedback in research not to eliminate this button completely, but to minimize it. So you’ll see a design change soon that makes the Reply button a little bit less conspicuous.

          Let me know if you have any questions!

          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.

            Hi everyone, quick update for you on this feature.

            We’ve got lots of resources on this and we’re actively working on it. This is a top priority feature.

            I haven’t gotten a firm ETA from the team but I can say this won’t hit in the next month or so. Its a complicated feature, so it will take longer than that. I’ll let you know once I get a general date from them.

            Thanks for your feedback, patience, and as always, thank you for your support of Teams.

            Sincerely,
            Suphatra

            "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."

                  I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news. :-( But we are facing resource constraints for this feature and have placed this on our backlog. We know this is an important scenario and have not given up on it though! I’ll let you know once work on this starts up again.

                  3) does it matter? you have people requesting the feature. As Nike states, just do it.

                    Hi everyone, sorry for the long gap between updates. We’ve been diligently working on this feature, but its taken some time due to performance issues. We want to create this feature in a way that the additional libraries required to do the syntax highlighting don’t impact things like the channel switching and page load times.

                    Here are some things you’ll be able to do with this feature:
                    1. While authoring there you’ll have a dedicated code editor window which provides syntax highlighting, line numbering, etc.
                    2. You can also choose to add a heading to the snippet before inserting.
                    3. You can add snippets as cards into the message and can be expanded inline by the reader. The reader will see all the appropriate syntax highlighting as part of the card.

                    We’re excited to roll this out for you — thank you for your continued patience!

                    Sincerely,
                    Suphatra

                    @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.

                      So it turns out there are some several external dependencies that are hindering our plans for this feature. We are pulling it back into review so we can determine feasibility. Here’s to hoping we find a way to bring this to you — right now its very difficult. We are not taking this off the table though; we know this is an important feature, so we’re tracking the external dependencies to see where they land.

                      Thanks,
                      Suphatra

                          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.
