I'd like to use one chat client - Teams - for all of my chats. Adoption of teams is limited here because we cannot chat with external consumer skype and SfB users. Also, chat history with consumer and SfB users is needed. Are either of these on the roadmap?

Hi Jeff - that's a great question. We do have guest access coming in, it is targeted for June currently. So you should be able to chat with your friends and colleagues in Teams soon!
+1 for some external access for contractors, etc. who aren't part of our Office 365 organization.
