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.

The request about “Guest Access at the Channel” level is being tracked by this request: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/31374577-guest-access-should-be-implemented-at-the-channel
Thank you all for the feedback.
Use case: I would like to have a Team for all projects in a certain region, for instance, and then each Channel would be for a specific client project. Preferably, only certain team members would be assigned to a Channel, though they are all members of the Team. I have 70+ projects that will be fulfilled by a combination of the same 10 or so people. I can't imagine setting up and managing individual Teams for each individual project (though for larger projects, maybe I should break them out into their own Team)
