Directing messaging an external client on Teams

Occasional Visitor

I currently host meetings with multiple users on Microsoft Teams. Some of these members have Microsoft accounts and as such come up as guests. I am able to easily direct message those people. Others, however, do not have Microsoft accounts and so I was hoping I could get some advice on how to direct message these individuals. I hover over their names and the chat button is unavailable. 

Thanks!

In order to use the chat functionality, their account needs to be associated with Teams, Skype for Business or Skype subscription. Generic XMPP support/federation was deprecated a while back.
