Hi Everyone – thank you for your patience. As was commented by someone below, Suphatra is no longer at Microsoft, but rest assured we are working on this feature.
You said early 2018. We're now past Easter... Jesus has already died and risen! Yet, no support for private teams, lol?
To get private teams:
1) Open Teams
2) Find your team and click the elipses
3) Choose 'Manage Team'
4) Go to 'Channels'
5) Click on the elpises for the channel you would like to make private
6) Choose 'Make private'
It only 516 days but it's here. Well... not really. I am a day late but, happy April Fools Day. Check back next year for another round of 'Support for Private Channels' April Fools (unless it's released... which I doubt).
December on track? 3 more days! We're excited!
Any update with this one? Why is the development time so long?!?!
