Did you know: there is a new location of the new chat button in Microsoft Teams and moving the Contacts and Recent view options to a drop down in the Chat list header, as opposed to standalone tabs which will be rolling out mid-March and completed by mid-April.
How does this affect me?
The New Chat button will now be located at the top of the chats list. This means that you’ll only be able to access it from the Chat app, as opposed to any app (e.g. Teams, Calendar, etc). The shortcut Ctrl + N (CMD + N for Mac) will continue to work the same way as before.
The options to toggle between Recent view and Contacts view in the Chat app will now be located in a drop down on the title/header of the chat list.
