Teams Public Preview: Contact search not working

Hi,
I would like to report an issue in the Teams Public Preview:

We noticed that the contact search in the Teams Public Preview (v1.4.00.3484; updated on 08.02.2021) is not working.
In detail: If you are searching for a contact, which is not part of your recent chats yet, in Teams client the search stays empty without any search results.
After switching back to "regular" Teams version (v1.4.00.2879; updated on 10.02.2021) the search is working again.

Is this issue already known?
Thanks for a short feedback.

Best regards
Sven

@SvenHoffmann-4894,

Do you mean the regular Teams version is unchecking Public Preview in the following image?

I tested in my lab. Whether I am in public preview or in regular, the Teams client is the same version 1.4.00.3484 (64 bit). Meanwhile, contact searching is working properly.

If I misunderstand your words, please give us more information about this case. Thanks for your understanding.

Dear @SharonZhao-MSFT ,

sorry for not coming back earlier.

I checked again on my end, and contact search is still not working properly on public preview.
"Unknown" people (no chats/calls before) are not found at all in the contact search.

As you described: Yes the Teams Versions are now the same on regular channel and on public preview: v1.4.00.4167.

Best regards
Sven

@SvenHoffmann-4894,

Do you try to enter the whole username in public preview?

I found the same situation in Teams for Linux (Ubuntu 20.04). The workaround is to enter the whole username. You could try it.

@SharonZhao-MSFT
unfortunately, the workaround is not working on my side.
Both options (entering full Name & entering full userid) is leading to no search results for new contacts.
