Ability to reply to a specific message in a chat thread
I would like the ability to reply to a specific comment within a thread. Especially now with Guest access and Team sizes sure to grow and expand.
I was in a "Conversation" with several people the other day and the problem was that people kept starting new threads rather than replying to the thread. This was because the threads themselves were quite long, and the only reply button was way, way down, past dozens of other comments by several people.
Sometimes you just want to reply to one specific message/comment in a thread rather than at the end of the thread to answer one question or comment on something in-line with the conversation.
This is especially important when dipping in and out of conversations or moving between threads and now between Teams tenants/accounts.

Should be able to reply to specific messages on the desktop app when it's possible via phones. Its a very useful feature
Why has this still not been implemented on the desktop/web app, when it's live on mobile?
Microsoft, please add smth like these guys do
is this so hard to do feature?
Giuliano Thomaz Damazio commented
When can we expect this feature to be available, assuming it will?
Pretty crucial to collaborating together more an actual projects.

Another One. We need this in the desktop app :(
I expect it is a basic feature that should have, please make it happen now.
Above idea is shared more than 2 years ago...what a shame.. :(

Do we have any updates about reply to a specific message in a chat thread for mobile?

On the PC app version, there is a reply option in teams conversation but for a 1-1 chat this is missing. However, on the mobile app version, reply is available for team or 1-1 chat. This is creating user experience nightmare when we switched between mobile and PC.
To stay ahead of competition with other chat application in the market, reply option in 1-1 chat for PC version is a must have.
Please advise when this feature will be available on desktop?
Really needed for managing communication threads effectively with multiple contributors (the whole purpose of teams :)

Please add this feature, I am using Mac and life without teams is night mare. I have to everytime take out my mobile to use this feature. You have all the votes you need :-)
Anand Chandawarkar commented
You have my vote. Would be awesome if made available on the MS Teams Desktop App
Hope this coming very soon. We already have on mobile, other peers from the company have this clamor
Any update on this feature being part of the desktop app? if so when is the scheduled release?
I'd also appreciate this functionality on the desktop app.
