      Hi everyone, thank you for your patience since the last update.

      We want to extend a huge thanks to all of you who have engaged with us on this topic of compact chat. Your input has been invaluable and helped inform our design and decision-making.

      As we look to 2019, we will be pursuing plans to continue to make the product more and more space efficient. We see this as a guiding design principle, as well as a backlog of requests from UserVoice that we catalogue, discuss, debate, brainstorm and problem solve.

Each message in a channel doesn't need it's own text bubble. When I send several message in a row, they should all be grouped into the same text bubble. In addition why must there be several inches of white space on either side of the message as padding?

I should just be able to read the message in it's entirety without switching Teams to the active application. Please think of the people who enjoy using a keyboard.
