List channel messages

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Retrieve the list of messages (without the replies) in a channel of a team.

To get the replies for a message, call the list message replies or the get message reply API.

Note: This API supports subscribing to changes (create, update, and delete) using change notifications. This allows callers to subscribe and get changes in real time. For details, see Get notifications for messages.
