    We are happy to announce that the New Conversation Button has started to roll to the general public, and should be rolled out 100% over the next week or so. We will share another update as soon as one is available.

    I started this thread back in May 2017 when I was trying out Teams for the first time. I found that everyone fell into the trap of using the Reply vs Start New Conversation fields incorrectly (even me when I wasn't concentrating). I ended up ditching Teams altogether because of this issue as I just couldn't persuade non-computery friends to use it properly.

    I thought I'd try Teams again this month for a new project and was amazed to find that the issue is still there in the Windows app. I've started a team with just my assistant across the other side of the world, and we're both consistently starting new conversations when we mean to reply. I simply can't introduce new team members if it's this difficult to use correctly.

    The number of votes indicate this is a significant to other people too. I understand that Microsoft is trying to find the `right` solution here, but the time it's taking to fix this is silly. Has analysis paralysis taken hold?
