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.

This feature has been on their roadmap since 2016. I don't understand why this is taking so long.
This request has been declined by the feature team.

This request was posted in 2016 and now it's 2018 and we are still waiting for this feature to be implemented.
Why is this taking so long Microsoft?
This will probably be a game changer when it comes to structuring Teams/Channels.
Just my thoughts....
