How this will affect your organization

This feature introduces a new, optional setting for users to increase the density of viewable content on Teams Chat via “Compact” mode. Compact mode allows the user to see more content given the same screen size vs. the existing layout.

Note: This mode only increases the density of the Teams Chat message pane and has no impact on Teams and Channel experiences.
