When I type ``` to start a code block, a markdown syntax, I should be able to select the code language. In markdown, I would follow the triple ticks with the language name, such as csharp, html, sql, and then press enter to start the code block.

 

Can this part of the feature be implemented? If not, could we at least get the language picker tool that's available when we insert a Code snippet from the format menu?

Hi @carlinq - Do you want to implement feature in Microsoft teams?  

Hi @carlinq - Microsoft will always focus on customer’s feedback and experience, some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, we also recommend you give your new idea in Teams UserVoice here if this needs to be consider as a future request.
