Private and Group chats are covered under Teams Chats. Conversations in Teams Channels are covered under Teams Channel Messages

 

You can see more here

 

Manage retention policies for Microsoft Teams - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs

 

Hope that answers your question

Hi Chris,
Thank you for quick response. I have another question. What is default retention time for Teams chat and conversation in Team channels.

Thanks
Usman
Default retention is forever unless manually deleted. If you turn off the ability to delete posts in the messaging policy, users will not be able to delete any they are kept indefinitely

Hope that helps

Best, Chris
