Approval Email not formatting MarkDown

Getting some strange behaviour with the markdown for approvals.

It's formatting correctly when view through Flow in the browser, but not in the email.



I am having the same issue on my end. I have received 2 requests today for this.

Markdown is definitely not working in the emails opened in the Windows 10 app


Is this going to be fixed or what?

Not all things mentioned in the table  here -  worked for me. But after many trials, a simple one column table markup in approval action has worked. This is tested in Outlook desktop app and outlook web (Windows 10 machine) .
