How to see chat message time in Microsoft Teams app on iPhone

I use the Microsoft Teams desktop client a lot sitting at my desk day-to-day and it’s great to have it on my phone. It wasn’t until this week being in Orlando for Microsoft Ignite that I noticed the Teams app on the iPhone doesn’t show the time a message was sent. I hadn’t noticed this before but maybe that’s because I would see the messages coming through in real-time. Now I’m in another country and connectivity is whenever I can grab some Wi-Fi, the lack of time against the messages makes it very confusing. Hence messages such “I’ll meet you at xyz in 30 minutes” means absolutely nothing! Have I already missed the meet up?!

Then I stumbled upon the fact that if you swipe from the right edge of the screen to the left (and hold it) the message times magically drag in against each message. Maybe this is obvious to some but to me a very hidden and cryptic UX.
