    I would really like to hear from the developers about what makes this such an arduous task to undertake. I don't mean an answer like "Oh different users have different opinions so we want to make sure we take all of those into consideration before coming up with an idea". I mean what is so hard about making the text chat actually span the entire width of the available space instead of forcing everything to the center of the window.

    The code snippet section is a joke. Like what developer made that and though to themselves "Yeah, that's more than enough horizontal space to read code."?

    Literally don't understand why it's so difficult to just rip off the Slack chatroom UI and call it "compact mode". That's all anyone wants.

    I stop in from time to time to see if Teams is getting anywhere and I can't say I'm surprised to find that it hasn't.

    To anyone reading this, if you aren't dependent on Microsoft Teams, I recommend switching to Slack, Discord, or some other competing service. Teams tries too hard to be "cute" instead of focusing on actual basic features that help with productivity and until Microsoft figures that out you'll just be wasting your time using it.

    Beating a dead horse here, but if any of you can switch to Slack then you should do it. It's clear that Teams is being presented as a messaging system for cute optics instead of actual productivity.

    After using Teams for over 7 months, my team switched to Slack last week. We won't be coming back. The lack of development on highly requested features such as this leads me to believe that Teams will never be a proper competitor in the Slack/Discord space.

    So I just saw that this request is not being done: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16925779-hide-the-reply-button-under-every-message

    How are we supposed to get a truly compact layout when half the problem is the bloated mess that threading makes?

    I appreciate that changes are being made, but this change is barely even noteworthy. The chat is the problem and the only noticable change there is that short text no longer gets randomly split into two lines. In the end, I still only see 7-8 messages in a maximized window.

    DENSITY! I should be able to see more than 7 single line messages in a maximized 1080p window. Like, far more than 7. Like... 40-50 single line messages. Like IRC. The current design caters too hard to this weird "teehee! I'm at work to have fun! I can post memes and pretend I'm having casual facebook conversations with chat bubbles!" vibe. Leave the "fun" tool designs to phones/tablets/non-work software.

    Disabling this seriously needs to be added as an option. There's no way it would take any longer than a day to implement, test, and roll this out. I don't understand the aversion to basic quality of life features in Teams. It's frustrating that Teams gets forced upon so many organizations and then Microsoft doesn't put in the work to make it an enjoyable experience for its users.

    How is this a difficult setting to add? This is horrendously distracting and unnecessary. The red dot is more than enough information to know that I have a notification. I don't need the taskbar constantly flashing until I acknowledge it. Most things it's flashing about do not require immediate attention.

    I wish I lived in the same universe as some of the commentors here who apparently have no other gripes with Teams than needing custom emoji. There's so much more that needs to be worked on in this app than just emoji.

    This sounds like a great idea. Maybe the Teams team will get it through their heads and properly implement these threaded conversations correctly along with implementing a proper separate group chatroom function.

    Switched to Slack. This is an annoying bug that should have been fixed by now.

    I would like to add that, for me, this only happens after the Conversations view has several(100+) individual conversations loaded. It won't occur on a fresh launch of the program. However, the more messages that get loaded, the farther you get scrolled up when the bug hits.

    This seems completely antithetical to the point of having a "Team". If you're discussing something that the rest of the Team shouldn't see, then you should be making a separate Team or just messaging them in private.

    Absolutely agree with #2 and everything in general. For Microsoft to claim that Teams has "chat history" is them being disingenuous. Yeah, there's a chat history, it's just barely functional. Being unable to jump to the message in the search results is literally the worst part of Teams.
