anything to share about an alternative to Persistent Chat on the Mac Client?

Thanks for your ask. Currently Persistent chat is in maintenance across the product. The future of persistent chat for most customers will be Microsoft Teams.
Is Persistent Chat different than Conversation History? When will Teams be available for .edu customers?
So i had to use 2 different Clients and maybe a cloud and on-premise product :(
Or will the Teams Client be able to Login to a on-prem infrastructure :)
Persistent chat is different then conversation history. Its a feature that came for on-premises users and is particularly of interest to customers in the finance sector. Going forward, we generally believe the Microsoft Teams will be the right tool. We have no public timing to share on availability on Teams for EDU customers at this time but I know there is a lot of planning going on for this.

Microsoft don't really care about on-premise users anymore. If you want persistent chat, on multiple clients, you're probably best looking at on-prem alternatives like HipChat, RocketChat or Mindlink (sits on SfB but is crazy expensive)
