Sometimes users accidently create a new chat outside of the main chat around a particular subject. I see that you can link back to that orphaned chat but can you merge that chat back into the main thread?

AFAIK there’s no timeline or heard anything about it!
I’d recommend to go to Teams uservoice and upvote on several of these requests:

Solution
No updates to this ability on the roadmap, however, they are releasing the long awaited "New Conversation" button that should help alleviate this issue since most users first habit is to go down to the chat box and start typing, which will be replaced with a button to make people think a bit more before replying hopefully :).
