Quoting previous Messages
A collegue of mine discovered this in markdown formatting (if you include a ">" before a paragraph it formats it as a quote, then 2xShift+Return to exit quote). This is a useful feature when trying to give context to a response that occurs later in a conversation thread.
Quoting should be a more integrated feature. I'm picturing a "quote" button below the message window that when you select it, it opens another window where you can select a message you want to quote. The tool should automatically date/time stamp the quote, format it the same as the markdown method, and perhaps make it so that clicking the quote would bring you to that part in the conversation.
We are planning for this! I’m trying to get a date when work will start. But it is officially off the backlog. :-)
This is that kind of thing, simple to make that will make a lot of people happy, include me and my teammates.
Is there an ETA on this?
add quote function as soon as possible, we absolutely need this asap. Pls add
Pls, add "quote" ! This is really need!

So, when can we expect this feature? Is it going to take another year? I haven't seen anything mentioned in https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams%2CRolling%20out%2CIn%20development#owRoadmapMainContent yet

please prioritize this feature as a straight forward button "reply" or something
It was off the backlog almost a year ago? When will you have this crucial feature!
Just looking for this today after coming off leave for 2 weeks. Would be good to have a quote feature in Teams.

You have this feature in Skype but not in Teams, how can this IMPORTANT feature be ignored, this is one of two primary issues we are facing, and if there's no solution in the future, eventually we will have no other option to switch to a different platform!
How many users should vote for this feature?
Answer that feature is planned was added a year ago! Is it joke?
It is awful that such necessary feature is not clear and is hidden.
It is must have for discussing work questions especialy in group chats!
Please add it!
NEED THIS ASAP

Wow I googled this expecting to find I was being an idiot as I couldn't do it.
Turns out... you can't do it!
Really? A chat\collaboration client where you can't quote a message in a response?
That's like basic functionality - right?
