@Louisani84 one more thing too look at - if you’re chatting with an external person, you can’t share files. This is by design to keep your data safe.
if you still need to share the file, you may be able to share a link instead, depending on your company’s policies.

@HelloBenTeoh so actually generating teams channels for external parties vs group chats only. Not a bad idea thanks. Would that mean the external party has to switch Teams tenants? I don't think the external chat messages require tenant switching. Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.

@NickPuzzle if they're added as a Guest, they'll need to switch tenants (but they won't need to sign out of Teams).
If you go down the path of Shared Channels, it's a bit more effort as your Teams Admins will need to coordinate and set up B2B direct connct (B2B direct connect Microsoft Entra overview | Microsoft Learn) but it means they won't need to do any switching and your channels will appear in their regular teams/channels area.
