Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
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.

Thanks to Rob Dentsu, who posted this earlier this year on the Techcommunity
so important to work this out in max. 4 weeks from now...
We are still considering this feature for future releases, and will continue to update the status when it changes.
Move it back to 'Working on it', please.
Microsoft Whiteboard App is in preview. Rollout to public users will be coming soon. You can find more details here:
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
This is so important for working and communicating in context. So:
1. make the design simple an tight
2. don't make 'collapsed' default
We are getting closer… the team is almost ready to rollout MacOS notification support internally for testing – we hope to have it to the public by the end of this quarter.
We experience this also in the MacOS- environment. Optimalisation is very welcome.
Still in the works, no additional details are available yet.
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 feature request is still on in the backlog. No new updates available at this time.
The feature team is still reviewing, there is lots of discussion about this item and I hope to have a decision soon.
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.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
