The latest build of the Teams clients (desktop, browser, and mobile) include the ability to remove a participant from a group chat. This is a much-requested feature that’s taken surprisingly long to deliver, but now you can have fun adding and removing people to your heart’s desire. It’s nice to have a chat and it’s even better if you can control who you chat with.

Very useful feature. What's the version # where you're seeing this?

@Bob Manjoney  It's mentioned in the article (version 1.2.00.10168 and later).

Thanks for adding that in!
10168! We're still on 8864... need to get those squirrels running faster :)

@Tony RedmondI left the group chat at the end of my shift. It says I left the chat, but others are still seeing me in the chat. They tried to remove me and re-add me but they can't get me back into the chat. I made sure to sign out of the app on my PC and deleted the app from my tablet.
