Update: 

This bug was corrected and the Leave button has made a return. 

 

Do you have users or are you yourself trying to find out why you cannot leave a Teams group chat or meeting chat? The button to leave is bugged and is missing form the ... menu making most users think you cannot leave these any longer.

Good to know - thanks for sharing!

@Chris Webb, found this today because I also am having the missing Leave button bug, but the blog post you reference on your site is no longer available or was deleted.

 

I'm using the Teams desktop app for Windows.

@YCIRandy I removed the blog since the issue was corrected and some people were getting confused I guess by the blog, I forget the exact reason, but the bug shouldn't be there anymore. "It isn't for me" you might be having a different issue? 

@Chris Webb, it could just be something related to the Win7 desktop app.  Thankfully, our company is migrating to Win10 1809 in the next 2 weeks.  I recheck the desktop app after migration.

Don't think it should matter, should be the same client. Make sure you check for updates and are running something close to 1.2.00.7161

You can only leave group chats, or meetings. Once you leave them, the still show up thou for historical so don't forget that, at that point you can hide it.

You could also hover over the chat participants in the top left center of the chat window and there will be a leave option under the participant list, least that's how you could leave the chats previously when this bug was in place, if that's missing, you most likley already left the chat and just need to hide it?

@Chris Webb think the problem has been solved.  Version is good since it's 1.2.00.7161.  Reviewed things and it was the historical chat that was supposed to have been hidden previously but somehow reappeared.  Re-hid it and we'll see if it sticks.

@Chris Webb When there are only 2 participants in a chat room the "leave" button is not present so those 2 fellows are not able to leave the conversation, is this a planned behavior?

It's expected behavior, not sure if it's planned or if they are looking to change that. You can always mute / hide the chat going forward. The question is, if you try and chat direct with that individual does it always now pull up the group chat as your 1 to 1 chat with that other person? If not, would just hide / mute it.

@Chris Webb got it!

 

I just tried by searching my teammate via the search field a minute ago and Teams brought our direct chat not the chat where we were the only 2 people left, so, I will go with the option of hiding the other chat (there was 15 persons in the conversation and just the 2 of us left, I think I forgot to give some more context when I first posted my question)

Thanks!

THE LEAVE BUTTON IS STILL MISSING ON OUR VERSION

Still and issue here in Mar21 with Microsoft Teams Version 1.4.00.4167 (32-bit). In a created group chat where 2 users are left (me and someone else), there is NO LEAVE BUTTON.
Me too (11.03.2021)
