Display Names on Mobile Client Versus Desktop

Is anyone seeing a difference with the display names in a multi-user chat on the desktop client versus the mobile app.  We see the entire Last, First name in the desktop client but only Last, First_Initial in the mobile app.  We are already hearing about some confusion around members of a team where they have the same last names and first initial (see image).  Is there a way to display the full name in both?

I see the same as you. AFAIK there isn’t a way to force the full name to be displayed directly in the chat. However if you tap the names list at the top of the chat on mobile, you will see the full names of everyone in that particular chat.

You may want to create a uservoice request (I didn’t find any for this particular request) and see if it gets any traction.
