You should experience significant improvements in copy & paste of images within Teams, as well as to & from Teams. We are aware of a few remaining issues, but the most common cases are resolved.
Thanks again for your patience on this one.
BTW: note that this issue is much larger than described in the OP. Just to be clear: this is not only a chrome thing but pasting images from any program sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
This is a very buggy bug in the sense that it is difficult to predict when the pasting of images will work and when it wont. So it might be a nice start if someone from Microsoft could clarify what the intended behaviour actually is. Is pasting of images from clipboard supposed to always work? Or only certain formats? Or only from certain programs?
Of course I think it should always work (at least for all common image formats), but clarifying what Microsoft currently wants it to do would help to determine what behaviour is a bug and what is a nuisance that should trigger a feature request...

We are planning for this! I’m trying to get a date when work will start. But it is officially off the backlog. :-)
> Simply copy the line of text that you wish to quote and use “Shift” + “>” (greater than symbol) to insert someone’s comments as a quote.
Thanks for pointing that out, Warren, but I'm not sure if this is specific to US keyboards or if I'm missing something else because for me, “Shift” + “>” produces the greater than symbol (and formats the current line as a quote) but it does not insert the content of the clipboard (why should it anyway?). So your workaround works, but it is quite a bit more laborious than you seem to suggest. Also, from that quote, there is, of course, no way of telling who the original author was or which post the quote comes from. (I hope this will be included in the actual feature once it's released).
Anyway, thanks for pointing out the workaround!
This feature request is still on in the backlog. No new updates available at this time.
