Microsoft Teams will soon support queueing messages. With support for queueing messages, Teams will hold onto any messages that someone tries to send while offline and send them again once a device is connected to the web. The feature should result in fewer lost messages, especially for those who have intermittent connectivity.
The feature appears in the Microsoft 365 roadmap. The feature is currently listed with a January release, but the roadmap's dates are subject to change. Even if the feature doesn't roll out this month, it could come in the near future.
Here's Microsoft's description of the feature:
It's a terrible feeling to realize that an important message never sent. With support for message queueing, Teams will spend 24 hours trying to send a message again. After that time is up, it will prompt a person to either resend the message or to delete it.
