I voted for the "Linux client" feature not because I want a Linux application to connect to Teams, but because I want to be able to use Teams at its fullest on Linux- which I think can perfectly be done in the browser. Teams on Linux Chrome is already quite operational; it only needs video features to be completely operative- this seems to be possible because Hangouts does it.
Linux interest being the 5th most voted feature it seems disappointing to leave Linux users out in the cold.
This feature request is still being reviewed. The team is working hard to make numerous changes with regards to notifications, but they haven’t forgotten about this item.
I hope to have more details soon.
The ability to turn off emojis is still being worked upon.
Also, there is work to create a compact mode which will also help reduce white space… which in turn will impact some of the complaints are far as wasted space from the emojis as well, that have been voiced in the comments.
Stay tuned for more details.
This item is still under consideration by the feature team.
This feature is still being reviewed by the feature team. No decision has been made yet. I’ll keep you posted.
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 item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.

I would like this if it was not tied to a particular issue-tracking system, also it could be simplified.
