Agree'd that this is a critical feature, since it worked with Skype/Lync. The policy in teams states:
"Allow a participant to give or request control", which is sort of misleading. It should state: allow participate to give or request control to internal or external users" or something to that matter. (I didn't test if an associates is able to select and external user in the Give control combo box. (this also puts at least another on par feature for WebEx and GoTo meeting, and probably most other "conferencing solutions"
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.
Agree with a lot of the most recent comments, If you are Teams only mode and try sending a message to someone who is still Island mode, they will get the message in Teams, not SfB. It would be awesome.. to have an option during the message send/chat to send to a Skype user, (in the case where they are not using teams yet.

This is working today in the web client on Edge & Chrome. The team is actively investigating feasibility in the desktop client.
Agree, I'd like to see the same behavior on new messages. sometimes, I'll start posting content that I copied from word/excel, and I can delete the "words" but not the styles (Lines, boxes, etc..). the only way I can delete the entire contents of the message is to "post" then delete it. There should be a "Discard" option on edit.
Ditto on what Cian Stated. We used to be able to add hyperlinks to documents, pages, etc.. in Wiki's, however, that "Insert Hyperlink" control is no longer there.. What happened?
