    Hi @Brian George

    Do you want to have the ability to create a team for group chat members in a group chat?

    I'm afraid Microsoft does not currently provide this feature.To get this feature more quickly, you can send a feedback directly to Microsoft Feedback to add it in future updates.

    Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers’ feedback. With requirements like this increase, the problem may well be released in the future.

    Thanks for your understanding and support.

    It's not possible at this time. Some good work around info and a way to up vote this functionality here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/is-it-possible-to-create-a-team-from-a-group-chat/m-p/727960
