Able to reply to a specific message like how WhatsApp does.

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.

Yammer caters for replies well. Why can't Teams do it the same or similar way?
Victor Ramos commented
how long it takes to implement such a basic idea like this?
pls hire me, I do it for free.
Long press and reply. This is how you provide the in line replies on whatsapp - Microsoft? Are you listening? we commercial users all need this feature for the app to be truly functional and useful!!!

Still not there... It's a shame because you can't even copy a message to reply... It always takes the second message as well when you try to copy a message for Quote and reply. Just add reply button or a shortcut that takes the message in a Quote.

Please allow threaded reply in Conversation and Individual chat both! Whatsapp kind of reply will be super cool!
Larry Franke commented
Yes please? Why would you oly let this work in group chats.
Please activate for indiviual chats also?
The reply function should also be available for chats
Hello, this function would be great and helpful in chat conversation, be it multi-users or one-to-one.
This would be similar to the 'answer' button in the 'Teams' tab.
A similar setup to WhatsApp (double-click next to the message to reply to or swipe right on the mobile version) would be great.

It'll be great feature
Acredito ser muito importante essa função
Was just looking for this. This feature would be great. We have a pinned chat for our team, and sometimes it would be good to quote/reply to a previous message there.
Very much missing in private conversation.
Someone mentioned that it's possible in group conversations ( I assume they mean Channel Conversations in Teams).
In fact though , the reply function in the Channel is NOT as mature as the function in WhatsApp.
In a channel we can reply to the latest reply in a conversation. we can't select an earlier reply and reply to it. We could take a screenshot of the reply and include that in our reply , this would work reasonably well on a desktop but would be unwieldy on the mobile.
another way would be to use something from the old bulletin boards/online forums , i.e. the "quote" button, which would allow us to display the post/reply that we are replying to in the body of our reply (within parentheses).
So in summary, provide the ability to select a specific message , not only just the most recent one, and be able to reply to it. This should be possible in P2P chat and Channel conversations
In summary, there should be the ability to
"This is something that would be very useful on individual conversations, being able to quote messages you sent a while back."
Strange that this feature misses from individual chats.
Need this very much ^^
