Does anyone know if there is a way to disable this new feature and re-hide all disabled apps from our end users? We do not want our users to be able to start requesting apps we have disabled.

Hi, I'm with you here. Don't really get the idea of not presenting the possibility to actually hide those apps I don't want my users to use. I have provided feedback from the Message center but haven't received any response, at least not yet. So as of today I can't find any way of doing it.

They said "We are excited to bring this feature to our users, and we look forward to building on top of this. Stay tuned for more updates about this experience in the coming months." So let's hope they will implement that as well.
did you find how to hide apps? We did work with the policy .. I think you have to block them . https://docs.microsoft.com/nl-NL/microsoftteams/teams-app-permission-policies#manage-org-wide-app-se...
I've requested for Microsoft support to turn this feature off on our tenant for now.
I'm gonna do some testing here as well, just haven't had the time. As it seems right now using a setup from a test tenant where I'm only allowing one (1) third-party app with a app permission policy the users can request all others, as they're having the lock icon.

did that work? where they able to disable it?

@alex_decaesteker The request has been put in, but it can take about 2 to 3 weeks they said to complete on our tenant they said.
