    We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.

    I echo a lot of the recent comments on this thread, and came here looking to suggest just this feature. Your 'try this instead' does not work for the larger purpose of avoiding creating multiple sub-group Teams of one larger Team

    I would love the ability to create a private channel within a Team.

    I have several teams where I want to work on projects with only certain members of the team (~3). And I want to be able to do it without cluttering others in the team (~20) while creating the safe space for the project team to bounce ideas off within the project team without fear of judgement or interference from the rest of the team.

    I would love to create a channel with just my manager to discuss one-to-one topics, that I would over email and forget about if I didn't get a response. Microsoft Teams and the channels construct drives accountability and transparency, and to be able to do it in subsets of a team, without having to create a Team for each is critical.

    I sincerely hope that you will add this feature in the coming release. It would really help me push the usage of Microsoft Teams within the org.
