I really want to know how to change font style or type in Microsoft Teams.

Not size or effect(bold, Italic and so on) only kinds of font! :)

 

Do you have any idea for this?

Hi Adele

I am not aware of any way to change the fonts from within Teams, however the workaround that I use is to put my text in Microsoft Word, format it as I want, and then copy & paste it into Teams.

It should retain the format from word.

See how you go and let me know if that works for you?

Cheers
Damien
Agree here, not aware of any setting that allows to modify the default font in teams so best thing you can do is what Damien has suggested or manually change the font while tying a chat

That seems awfully short sighted MS.  Nearly every single app allows us to change fonts to a default font.  I'm supposed to click on the "Font" button every time I want to change the letter color?

And "shortsighted" is actually being too kind. It's actually presumptuous, controlling and, at the end of the day, it's just plain poor application development practice. Seriously, MS needs to stop trying to micromanage things that are none of their business, as though they know better. The font I choose to use is none of their business.

 

In the case of fonts, it doesn't just have a comsetic effect, though that is reason enough. It has a functional impact, as I need to use a monotype font.

 

Why would MS decide that allowing user's to choose their font is not a "feature" that should be made available?

Well, I guess that’s something we got to live with when using other’s s hosted services!
The uservoice was declined about fonts but continue vote for it and maybe they change their mind :)
Keep in mind that Teams is still a fairly new product and the Teams team are quite busy working on more important features and updates for some time ahead! After that, this and other kind of features may see the light again

Same here. 

The Simplified Chinese font looks extremely ugly.... Tried every way to change it but failed. 

Why do you need to use a Monotype font?

 

Other than Skype for Business I can't really think of other messaging apps that let you change the default font. Not Yammer, not consumer Skype, not this discussion forum or many others, not WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter etc.

Why? Because the default font can make deciphering keywords/passwords/site identifiers difficult and error prone.  Just this morning I had to debug a problem for a remote user.  She couldn't find an entry with a sitecode of 'gavabin'.  Turns out the sitecode was actually 'gavabln' and the font she was seeing made it hard to see that was a lower case L instead of an upper case I.

 

I always change my clients to consolas or courier or some other classic, monospace font so that O 0 I l 1 can be told apart.  Can you tell the difference here between that upper case I and the lower case l I just entered?  No?  That is why we want control of our fonts.

 

Yes I can, by entering it in Teams as code using ``` before the text (or the insert code button). See

If they sent it to me not in code and I really needed to I could open it in the immersive reader and change the font, or more likely I would copy/paste it somewhere else.

 

I'm not really sure I understand your point anyway, wouldn't you just get them to share their screen then you can see what's happening in this kind of scenario?

 

 

 

 

@Steven Collier 

I would primarily suggest it because the text copied and pasted into teams and the text natively typed into the teams wiki for example aren't the same font and you don't seem able to correct that.  So depending how you copied text in you are stuck with whatever you get.  That seems incredibly short sited and poorly designed.
