Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra
This request is still being considered by the feature team but a final decision has not yet been made. I’m still awaiting more details.

Just give us the option to toggle it off per channel, no one I have talked to actually _likes_ the threading of conversations, and our Dev team is actively refusing to move over from Slack because of it. We use Channels to designate topics, we don't need separate threads inside of that.
