We are working on a change to the systray icon to show new activity in a way other than a red dot only so it is differentiated from busy state. We’ll keep you posted. Thanks!Douglas Barmore Jr commented
Yeah, but it looks the exact same as when my status is set to busy. There is no differentiation between the two...
It has been three months since the last update, so checking in here to let you know this is still being actively worked on. I really appreciate your patience as we work on this.
I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays, and have a very Happy New Year!
This suggestion is still planned. I don’t have further updates on timing, but will share as we have them. Thanks.
Hi Everyone – thank you for your patience. As was commented by someone below, Suphatra is no longer at Microsoft, but rest assured we are working on this feature.
I’m thrilled to announce that redesigned and expanded message actions have begun rolling out to all users.
1) message actions, also referred to as “…”, moving up and out of the way of text, and
2) enabling new reaction types including Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Angry.
