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.
Any updates on this? The way threads work now make Teams unusable. Please add the option to have non threaded channels based on timeline. Basically just add an option to make it work like Slack or IRC. Threads are great for slow moving channels where you are just posting notices, but they are not great for having rolling conversations or time sensitive conversations due to the way they reorder or grab your focus when you're trying to type something. They also seem to make Teams exceedingly slow and viewing history is a huge pain point when scrolling up.
Please allow option to make disable threads or change the default from threaded conversation to non-threaded, but still allow for them. The view is not compact enough and threads hog up the space. They are also annoying because people do not always reply to a thread and then a thread auto collapses. The UI is pretty terrible. Most of the time one single conversation is fine, but the option to add a thread would be great.
We’re updating our command library all the time, so keep checking the menu in the command box to see what’s new by typing / or @.
Slash commands aren't available from the chat interface and only from the search interface and completely misses the point. So no, you don't have this.
We are getting closer… the team is almost ready to rollout MacOS notification support internally for testing – we hope to have it to the public by the end of this quarter.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
We’re pleased to announce the Teams client for Linux is now available for preview. Please see details at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Microsoft-Teams-is-now-available-on-Linux/ba-p/1056267.

Item 1 and 2 are Under Review.
Item 3 has been Completed.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more on this request.
Seriously. This makes channels unusable. Auto collapsing threads and threaded messages by default completely ruins the chat room experience. Please make this a channel setting or a user preference.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
ETA please? This is essential.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
With all the developers Microsoft has why is this taking so long. Teams is basically unusable without a compact mode and the removal of having threads on by default. 5 messages take the same space as 30 in Slack. It's completely ridiculous.
Please add a way to remove the chat bubbles. This is now my primary communication tool and I need to have a professional tool. Just copy Slack and be done with it.
