Details:

Microsoft 365 is updating the team and channel creation process to make it simpler and faster. Users will be able to create teams and channels from the top "+" button, with the option to create a team from a template or group and choose the privacy/sensitivity of the team. The "create channel" option will be elevated to the top to reduce team proliferation. The rollout will begin in mid-November 2023 for preview, mid-January 2024 for targeted release, and early February 2024 for worldwide release. Users should communicate with each other to pick the team they want to host the channel in, if the default team is not suitable.
Updated February 25, 2024: We have updated the roll out timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Collaborate more easily by creating teams and channels simpler and faster - a simple by default, power when needed experience!

Currently, our team and channel creation processes have several steps and are focused on letting users create team at the top level, with channel creation as an option for each team.
We are making the team create experience simpler by default, but still giving users the advanced options of creating a team from a template or group and choosing the privacy/ sensitivity of the team if they want. To help users create channels within these teams, we are putting "create channel" option at the top. They will be able to host the channel into a default team or a team they select.
Users can now create the right collab space by choosing between team or channel. Overall, users can now set up the right teams or channels from the + button, without having to go to different places or follow multiple steps.
This change is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 163363 and 163364

Worldwide: We will begin rolling out early February 2024 and expect to complete by late March 2024 (previously late February).

2024-01-05MC MessagesUpdated December 11, 2023: We have updated the content below with additional information. Thank you for your patience.
Collaborate more easily by creating teams and channels simpler and faster - a simple by default, power when needed experience!

Currently, our team and channel creation processes have several steps and are focused on letting users create team at the top level, with channel creation as an option for each team.
We are making the team create experience simpler by default, but still giving users the advanced options of creating a team from a template or group and choosing the privacy/ sensitivity of the team if they want. To help users create channels within these teams, we are putting "create channel" option at the top. They will be able to host the channel into a default team or a team they select.
Users can now create the right collab space by choosing between team or channel. Overall, users can now set up the right teams or channels from the + button, without having to go to different places or follow multiple steps.
This change is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 163363 and 163364
[When this will happen:]

Preview: We will begin rolling out mid-November 2023.
Targeted Release: We will begin rolling out late November 2023.
Standard Release: We will begin rolling out early December and expect to complete by mid-December 2023.
Updated January 5, 2024: We have updated the roll out timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
