I was just looking through teams for a feature like this.
Currently we use Discord to fulfill this need, but it'd be very nice to have a chat channel all of my remote employees can sit in to do easy chat with each other.

We have team members across a variety of timezones so we cannot always live chat with everyone. Some of the members are not really into typing messages but would prefer to leave voice recordings for others to pick up later that day when they come online. Any suggestions on how this can be done?

This is a key omission from MS Teams. Right now, I have several colleagues who refuse to use Teams. One item missing for them is the ability to send a recorded voice message, like you can do in WhatsApp.
Another major obstacle to adoption of Teams is the lack of online access, but I know that's for another post here!

Yes. Audio timeline that people can easily rewind and replay. It would help if AI could ID who was talking to show in the timeline along with a transcript (Microsoft has demoed this already). Instead of or in addition to scrolling up to see the previous posts in chat, you see the transcript and you can playback the audio. Timestamps would help. This would be a 24/7 audio chat. The recording system, however, would omit dead air from the timeline.
This would be amazing.

@brifl A bit like a walkie talkie ?
Coming by middle of the year ... https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2020/01/09/8-new-capabilities-microsoft-365-empow...

@Steven Collier - I think this thread was asking for walkie-talkie type behavior. That would provide parity with some other communication apps. I was suggesting having this functionality backed by a transcript and a condensed recording (remove silent periods). This would enable people to collaborate by voice or text across time.

@CharlieTaboneThanks for bringing this discussion back on track! Discord-style (or also TeamSpeak or Mumble-style) voice channels are a feature our company would love to have as well for Microsoft Teams. Especially now during the Corvid-19 crisis where we all work from home, this feature would enable much more closeness and the feeling of still working side by side.

It looks like the official place for feature suggestions for MS Teams is on microsoftteams.uservoice.com.
There is already a similar feature request, so please leave an upvote there to support the request:

I use Microsoft Teams for school and would find this very convenient. As an example doing homework together or if you need help with something you could join a voice chat with a teacher to quickly get help. Right now we (4 of 22 in our class) use Discord to do this but not everyone is ready to make a new account on another platform just for the voice channels.

@Asjad Khan Discord has many advantages over microsoft products for permanent team collaboration. Voice channels is one of those advantages. You could see someone in a particular channel and hop in to chat informally. You can set channels based on topic or permission level, so that if some of my team were in a particular channel I know whether it is appropriate to join the conversation. It doesn't require a meeting. It's basically using Visual Management to streamline collaboration.
