This is an example of a feature that have the ability to be switched off as well. You may not want this in a chat were the client is watching you formulate a response.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
This feature request has moved to the planning stage. There have also been several small updates that have gone out already, as well.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more about coming updates.
