How To Hide A Conversation On Microsoft Teams

Do you have a conversation that you no longer need on Microsoft Teams? Do you want to remove it from your chat list on the app? If so, you can hide the conversation from appearing on the Chat tab on your account. Follow our step-by-step guide below, and we’ll show you how to do so.


When you send someone a message on Microsoft Teams, the conversation history will appear and remain on your Chat tab. You can find all your existing chats with other users in this section if you ever need to read the messages and access the files.

If you no longer need one of your conversations, there’s no way to delete them from your chat list. However, you have the option to hide them to stop receiving any kind of notification from the conversation.
