Has there been change within the last week or so related to Chats/Contacts?  I think my company pushed an update to Teams over last weekend ( currently version 1.3.00.12058 ).  Prior to the change when in the Chats section, there use to be a tabular bar that you could easily click 'Chats' (Current chat/chat history)  and 'Contacts'.  The tabular bar was replaced with a drop-down selection.  This change is not as fluid as having a tab at the top to select.

 

I have highlighted the section where the change has occurred below:

@Derek Newton It was previously announced in Message Centre as MC196069, you'll also see that this was to make room for the New Conversation button to fit in that area, rather than the top bar or Teams.

 

As to why, well who knows! My guess is that they need to make more room in the top bar to allow the future search stuff that was announced at Ignite, and we can see here how even a small change creates all kind of knock on effects.

@Steven Collier 

Thanks for the information.  I was unaware of MC196069.

 

I totally agree with you that a small change can have big effects.  I guess Microsoft knows better than the users <sarcastic grin>.
