RELEASE: Microsoft Teams now has Markdown support for Developers

Taken from the UserVoice site for Microsoft Teams:

imageFor those who want to be able to format text on the fly or collaborate on code, Markdown has finally arrived. Now, you’ve got a quick, easy way to perform the following actions:

  • Add asterisks to either end of some text to make it bold
  • Underscore the beginning and end of some text in order to make it italic
  • Add a tilde before and after your text to strike through
  • Add a double pound sign (##) before your text to create a Header
  • Type [text](URL) to create a hyperlink within a message
  • To start a bulleted list, preface your text with an asterisk (*) or a hyphen (-)
  • To start a numbered list, preface your text with
  • To create a block quote, just add a right-hand bracket (>) before your text

Even better, our markdown syntax includes support for code:

  • To add an inline block of code, start and end the block of text you want to add with an `
  • To add a multi-line block of code, preface your text with “` and then paste it into your compose box

Please let us know how it goes and keep adding more suggestions here!
