MC320165 – Updated June 7, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Customize the number of chat messages you see on the screen. Use the compact setting to fit 50 percent more messages on the screen. Comfortable setting keeps the chat display as it is in Teams today.

This will be rolling out on Teams desktop.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 88064.

When this will happen:

Standard: will begin rolling this out in mid-February and expect to complete rollout late February. – Complete

GCC: will begin rolling this out in mid-March (previously mid-February) and expect to complete rollout late March (previously late February). – Complete

GCC-High: will begin rolling this out in mid-April (previously mid-March) and expect to complete rollout late April (previously late March). – Complete

DoD: will begin rolling this out in mid-May (previously mid-April) and expect to complete rollout mid-June (previously late May).

How this will affect your organization:

This feature introduces a new, optional setting for users to increase the density of viewable content on Teams Chat via “Compact” mode. Compact mode allows the user to see more content given the same screen size vs. the existing layout.

Note: This mode only increases the density of the Teams Chat message pane and has no impact on Teams and Channel experiences.
