Hello, In Skype, to chat with many people (different each time) it was enough to select them by  pressing CTRL and start the chat or video call, quickly.
In TEAMS I have to create a meeting, writing down all the names of the participants.

I find it very uncomfortable.
How can I do the same in TEAMS?
I wish I could just click on the names.

Thank you

You don't have to create a Teams meeting to create a group chat. See this guidance.

 

Create a group chat (microsoft.com)

 

Start a chat in Teams (microsoft.com)

Thanks for the reply,
what you indicate to me is the "normal" system. In this way I have to type in all the names I want to enter in the chat. I have 50 colleagues and every time I have to chat with different colleagues, I cannot create predefined groups. If I have to chat (or call) 10 people I have to type all 10 names. in SKYPE I could select them from a list by simply pressing CTRL and clicking on the names of the colleagues I wanted to chat with.
I was looking for something similar in TEAMS

 

grazie

I get it and I don't think it will be long until this will be possible in Teams too. They're adding so many features so it seems very likely to me.
I hope


grazie!
