Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.
We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.
Just chiming in with everyone else, give us a release date for this basic feature that you have delayed for so long, thanks!
This is so annoying - when will we have the basic function of opening multiple windows for multiple chats??
Maybe microsoft people aren't well liked and never have to talk to more than one person at a time. :\
This really isn't good enough - Teams is unusable without this feature for people who actually need to chat.
How long before this is fixed? Teams is unusable if I can't have multiple chat windows open.
Hi folks, we are collecting feedback on this so we can determine prioritization and user need.
Please comment in the thread below about how this affects you, how you currently add members, and who you think would benefit from this in your organization.
When a new team onboards, we have to individually add everyone on that team rather than in a batch, which can be anywhere from 5-40 people. We need something where we can list everyone in a team, all the channels they need to be a part of, and click once to get it done. Adding a bunch of people to a channel is a problem at the moment.
I’m happy to share that the team has started exploring designs for this feature.
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.
Reducing by 50% is not partially done - they're still way too huge and take up way too much space! What do you guys think the purpose of emoticons is, exactly? Please look at how virtually all other chat programs handle emoticons and just copy them! It's not hard, but all this does is illustrate that the Microsoft Teams team clearly has no idea how to use chat!
Adding any emoji as a reaction remains under review.
I am marking this as partially done to let you know a new reactions bar with Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Angry has begun rolling out to all users.
I don't emails that you're not doing anything either. Honestly Microsoft Teams is the worst product with the worst support. :\
We are working on a design with more density in mind. Until this design is solidified we are putting this item back to Under Review.
The last update was in September, and it's now December! When can we expect the new layout?
This feature request is still being reviewed by the feature team. No ETA for a decision yet.
This item is still under review. I’ll keep following up with the feature team.
Unfortunately because of changing priorities, this feature was moved to the backlog. The team hopes to pick it up again in the near future.
Currently we have Teams defaulted to show you the first (up to five) channels ever created. If you want to add more channels to your left rail view, just click the ellipses next to the channel name and select “Favorite”. When you favorite the channel, it will then be “pinned” to your left rail under that team name.
Try that and let me know if that meets your needs!
Why not just show all the channels? It's like you guys *want* everyone to have to click a bunch of extra times on everything.
Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.
Once support for Windows 10 native notifications is released, users who choose to use Windows notifications will be able to utilize Windows OS specific settings for the length of time to display notifications. Mac does not have an OS specific setting, so will not have the support.

Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.
If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to email@example.com.
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
This item is still under review by the feature team. I have no details as to when a decision might happen.
Feature request is still being worked upon.

I’ll keep you posted as I hear more on this request.
