Send a private message via Teams

We can send Skype messages via Flow but are unable to send private messages via Teams. Since Microsoft is migrating to a unified Chat experience anyhow - why not add an action that sends a message to one (or all) of the MS chat experiences?

Scenario :

 

From a PowerApps, send a message to a user via Flow. That message creates a private message between the sender and recipient in Skype, Teams, and StaffHub. This makes it MUCH easier to create flows depending on which applications a company has deployed to their user base.

Or send chat/private message directly from powerapp without using flow.  This is available using skype but as you mentioned Skype is going away.

 

I created an idea for this in the powerapp idea forum.

You can already do this. 

Create a flow that is triggered in your app, and use the action called "Post a message as the Flow bot to a user (Preview)".

But @bbar0121 has a great idea, since there is already a connector inside PowerApps for Teams! Cut out the middleman that is Flow. I love it.

Yes - appreciate you can use Power Automate as a workaround, but should be possible to push it straight from PowerApps for easier maintenance. You can already post to a Team/channel, but not a user. Crazy!
