This feature is being worked on. We’ll update the status as we get closer to the release
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

I am on Teams only mode and can't message someone using Skype for Business as it finds their Teams client even if they are not signed in. They get message saying your teammates are trying to reach you in Teams.
If the island mode user starts the conversation using their SfB client, it works and I get the message in Teams client.
We currently have users who have migrated to Teams only mode while others are in Islands mode but do not frequently use Teams hence, they end up never seeing the message.
If its possible to add a feature where an user who is on Teams only mode can choose whether to send the message to Skype or Teams instance of the Islands mode user, this will make the migration experience smoother.
While the expectation for a Islands mode user to use both clients is ideal and a lot of users do that, same can’t be expected of each user and hence, breaks down the communication chain.

This feature request is still being actively worked upon. Good progress is being made, but I cannot share any additional details at this time.
While we work on our Whiteboard you can also try the third party whiteboard app Freehand by Invision that can be found by clicking the Store icon from within Teams and go to the app gallery.
Thank you for all the feedback and suggestions.
This feature request is still working its way through the backlog queue.

The team is still reviewing this item. I hope to know of a decision soon.
Thanks to those of you who participated in the session with our user research team. We are continuing to work on this important feature, and will update you as we get closer to completing. ~ Alex
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.
I’m so happy to share an update with you! The feature team has let me know that they are working hard at this and are aiming for a spring time release.
Please comment below if you might be interested in testing or TAP, and include the industry, company size, and location of your org. We would likely want to hit a very wide range of demographics.
Screen share for Chrome is internal testing, and we are hoping to release it this quarter. We’ll keep you posted.
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

I would like the ability to
1) link an existing Sharepoint site to MS Teams
2) link a folder inside a document library (not the root of document library) as the default location for uploading files or creating channels
Hey everyone! We have this already. Just click the ellipses next to the thread name and select “Hide”.
Note that we cannot provide a “hard delete” due to eDiscovery and other legal reasons.
