Now in public preview: View the full chat conversation thread after clicking on search results

Microsoft

Description

Currently, when users search for a chat message in Teams and click on a message result from a chat which is older than 14 days, they are taken to a single-message-view of the chat, rather than the entire chat thread.

Current experience

We have addressed this issue. Now whenever users click on a chat message search result, they get dropped into the entire message thread, regardless of the age of the message.

New experience
