Markdown in Approvals not working on Teams

I'm trying to build a simple approval flow that highlights some fields from the approval form. The markdown that I'm using for formatting isn't being rendered in any Teams app at all (tried Teams on desktop, mobile, and web). I've read other issues with this and the resolutions are all for email formatting which works fine for me. The formatting I'm trying to use is line breaks and an H3 header. I've tried bold as well but that's not working either. 

 

Example in the Teams Approval App:

Example from Outlook Desktop:

My Power Automate Syntax:

Here's the "peek code" of the syntax above that shows the extra spaces I've added to trigger line breaks:

"WebhookApprovalCreationInput/details""@{outputs('Get_requestors_profile')?['body/displayName']} has requested a purchase from the IT department on @{outputs('Get_purchase_request_details')?['body/submitDate']}. Please reqiew the request and it's justification and make a decision on approval. If approved the request will go to the IT manager for final approval.  \n\n### Request:  \n@{outputs('Get_purchase_request_details')?['body/r2db0d9fc4b2f4761a46687b07a07afd9']}   \n   \n### Justification:  \n@{outputs('Get_purchase_request_details')?['body/r89c2ce85924347fcaee9eb1ff10c93f6']}    "

Hello ibharper,

Yes, we could normally repro the issue from Teams Approval. This issue is still pending investigation with Power Automate& Teams group since approval in Teams is available as a personal app for all Microsoft Teams users after mid of Jan. We would post in this thread when the issue has been confirmed. Thanks.
