This isn't a thing in 2019? Really!? Talk about short-sited and narrow minded in your view of how chat should work in a corporate environment.
MS Teams already automatically hides useful information we want to see behind the "show more..." thing I have to click EVERY SINGLE THREAD. You of course do not give us an option to disable the hiding of useful information. How is it you will not allow us to hide things we DO NOT WANT TO SEE?

The "Are you still there?" + "I'm back" makes Teams unusable for me.
My workflow requires I work on multiple docs/channels and seamlessly switch between them. To be quite frank, adding this speed bump along with the O365 web applications generally not being as functional as the G Suite versions makes recommending O365/Teams a hard sell to clients not married to Office docs. My clients would go nuts with all the "Are you still there?" messages.
I would have thought the developers of Teams/O365 would encounter this issue and be frustrated enough to fix it.
