Reply to specific message in chat on desktop app
Having the ability to reply to specific messages in a chat on the desktop app. This is available on mobile today.
Thank you for your continued feedback. As many people have pointed out, this is available on mobile today. Support for replying to a specific message is on the backlog for desktop. I’ll let you know when we have progress to share. Thanks.
I have two specific requirement in teams for desktop. If it is already been considered then please ignore this.
1. I have received 3 messages in the chat box by the same person. Now I would like to replay to his messages and I need to exclusively mention for which message I am replying. It is a bit difficult at some time. There are some chat messenger where we can reply to specific message. It would be good to have such feature.
2. I facing some issue when I share my screen to others along with desktop control. I am unable to operate until other person wont release the control. This issue should be fixed

The last response to this was May 6, 2020. Why is this rather basic functionality not implemented yet?!

Why have you not added this on desktop app yet ? Please add ASAP. This feature is so helpful
This has to be the biggest miss from the Product. Such a basic functionality that exists in majority of messaging product and somehow Microsoft missed that completely. It is very hard to track back the conversation without this feature. Please have this functionality in the Desktop App. It's very inconvenient to move back and forth between mobile and desktop while I am sitting in my desk to just have an access to this functionality
btw, according to the roadmap this is currently not in delevopment or rolling out https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?rtc=1&filters=Microsoft%20Teams%2CIn%20development
Hey, Do you want help in developing this? I think a lot of people can help you.
Its a very basic functionality you already have in your mobile application.
Please add this.
Any update ?
The most requested (and most basic) feature in the public Teams user voice with almost 40,000 votes and this item is STILL on the backlog after 8 months. Is there no-one spare that could implement what is already in existence on your mobile platforms? Please take it off your backlog. If 40,000 votes can't persuade you then this forum is pointless.

Any updates on this one?
I believe this should be treated as the most basic feature of any messaging platforn these days.
When is this coming?!!?
We need not only reply, but also forward.
Please!!!! this is a must!
Please, we need that!
I thought this is basic function. Why isn't it available on Desktop???????????

Not having this is a pain - have to find the mobile everytime I want to do this on a busy chat
