Thanks for your feedback!
The team is looking into this feature and considering solutions. We will update when there is more information to share.
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.
