Please add on desktop...its needed now when almost all world is working from home...Adding it 6 months later will be useful but we miss critical timing

Our users are discovering on mobile and loving it. Please move to desktop client in chat and channels messages.
Please add this on the desktop and you doing this means you care about your product and foremost your customers. The desktop chat is so irritating for not having this function.

Oh, this has to be on the desktop. It's on the mobile app and it replicates to the desktop app. See attached
Matt Hazley commented
Absolute must have for desktop
Please add these feature. Thanks!
Alfred Neequaye commented
Yes Please bring this to Desktop ASAP
This is a MUST Feature. it works on iPad and Mobile Version should work on Desktop and Mac Version too.
I've been searching this feature for the past days, I couldn't believe it exists for the mobile version but not for the web? How come??? Are you serious??? And why the differentiation between the ability to reply in teams but not in the chat???
Please add this feature immediately!!
I had to do this steps:
Copy the message I want to reply
Write my reply
All this manually and it's annoying
Could you please release this feature asap?

Seems like such a simple feature to have. Using quote is so clunky and takes far longer than it should. The feature is included in mobile but not desktop, which makes no sense.
There are now third party companies that are selling plugins to allow desktop replies.

This one has got more votes for some reason although it was submitted later: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39353152-reply-to-specific-message-in-chat

It's possible in the mobile app (at least on Android) but I couldn't find it on the desktop version.
In order to have an idea w/ the correct answers
Ive asked the GM for the product group if he could look into it, now that half the world is working from home from now untl after the apocalypse..

This makes conversations unbelievably efficient. PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS.

I see the Reply option is available in the Teams App for Android, however is unavailable in the web based version and the Windows App.
I feel it qualifies as 'Must Have' category rather than the 'Nice to Have' category.
What number of Votes or Comments, does it take, to get the feature in 'Work in Progress' or 'Working On It' mode.

We are using addon QuoteMaster for it https://www.quotemaster.ml/

Yammer caters for replies well. Why can't Teams do it the same or similar way?
