Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.

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.
Integration with Skype Consumer is no longer under review, and officially planned.Lionel commented
Adding Skype public would be a good step forward indeed.
Coupling with "Support for Private Channels", Teams would become a great tool.
This item remains on the backlog, while we work on other higher priority Meetings features. Thank you.
This is still on the backlog and working up through the queue.
