This feature is on the backlog. I will update you when we have more details to share.
Thank you for your continued feedback. The feature team is actively working on this highly requested feature. We are testing the first release that will have the ability for meeting hosts to create breakout rooms, assign the users to the rooms and call them back to the main room. Please see our roadmap for current status here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams&searchterms=65332.
There are two parts to this topic:
1) Completed: Bypass the lobby for PSTN: The ability for admins and organizers to be able to specify a meeting option to bypass the PSTN lobby independently of the VoIP lobby.
2) On the backlog: Ability for an organizer joined via PSTN to admit users from the lobby with a PIN. If you enable “Always let callers bypass the lobby” in your meeting options, people calling in by phone will join your meeting without having to wait for someone to admit them. See details here: https://support.microsoft.com/office/change-participant-settings-for-a-teams-meeting-53261366-dbd5-45f9-aae9-a70e6354f88e
Please Note: In Q2CY20, we launched a new default in for the Teams meeting policy (https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=63388). If tenants have not modified their default meeting policy, lobby is now enforced.
Thank you for your votes and comments on this feature. The team is in the process of finalizing designs for deleting private chat threads. I will update as we have more progress to share.
Thank you for your feedback and comments! The team is looking into how best to do this. We will post an update here as we have more to share.

Hi Suphatra. The workaround we've found is an internal tool from our IT Dept., which allows us to create a security enabled distribution list, which we can then add to the team. That pulls out all the addresses and sends an invite to everyone in the DL. There's still a fair amount on confusion with our users not understanding that it's a one-time invite, not an all time membership.
This feature request is still working its way through the backlog queue.
This is currently in internal testing rings at Microsoft, and the feature team is targeting a release to the public in early Q2.
