Add "reply" functionality for messages sent on chat
On a private chat conversation with someone else, sometimes we have many messages.
It would be nice to reply to specific messages so that is clear the context of our response.
please add for desktop app

This is very necessary, specially when in chats

Please add this functionalayty to all platforms. It work on ios but does not in windows application.
I wish I could "upvote" 70% of these comments
Tamer Ahmed commented
it's already implemented in Android and iOS, why not in windows version
Agree! This option is available in the Channel chats, so it seems odd that it's not available in the regular chats....

How is desktop lacking this fundamental feature?
agreed we need this man

The TEAMS app has this ability, actually. If you are using the chat option of Teams on you mobile, you can reply to specific chats. However, the desktop application doesnt have this option, which is rather frustrating.
When will the desktop app have this ability?

Let's focus our vote on an issue
I have the answer for some of you, but it's not as easy as we would like, try the following:
Copy the message you want to reply to.
Press Shift + >. ( something will change in the text editor )
Paste the message.
Double enter and the start typing symbol will move to the next line.
When will MS add this feature on desktop? It's inconvenient to swap using mobile app when I need to reply.

Need it....Need it...

For now. I am using this workaround for the time being..
This is a feature that is 100% required..
we are using teams in the company I am working for and not being able to respond back to specific messages in a private chat makes our lives difficult and confusing some times
