Guys, suggest you all to hit the star button on the bottom right on this page and leave a low rating, it is only when these MS employees merit increase and bonuses get hit, will they listen!!!
Please do add this functionality for Desktop App and Browser Version, It would be extremely time saving and would avoid a lot of confusion!
It is very handy to use it on Mobile version.
Any timeline on when this will be available.

This would be a nice feature to have for sure in the desktop client.
The idea of UserVoice is to help project teams prioritize the features that the customers want.
OR you can put the by-far top feature request with 27.7k votes (in 267 days, so more than 100 votes/day) on the backlog, I suppose...

Yes please to adding this functionality to the desktop client - we would use it a lot!
Please add this functionality to the Desktop client, its already in the mobile app. Little details like this are what makes the Dev Team look foolish.
Please provide this function in desktop version of Team.
I can't fathom why this has not been a no brainier. Stop trying to beat zoom and add a functional tool. Anytime I am in a large group discussion, I have to use my phone to reply directly. Not very seamless if you ask me.
This functionality was available on the iOS version in previous version of Teams but has now disappeared while in the same time it appears on new Message apps released by Apple on iOS14...
Please allow/restore this functionality in Teams on all different OS versions!
Every chat apps is now providing such functionality.
"With regards to functionality there should be consisteny across platforms. People need to use the tools that are best suited to them not because a certain piece of functionality is on one and not another platform."
100% agree with the above

This is really an important feature . Specially when you are in group chat... sometimes you need to answer one of the questions,,, this option does exist only on mobile versions and i have also saw it working on whatsapp desktop version... by just clicking on on the small arrow on the top of the message and select reply

Hey Alex, has this backlog item moved anywhere to any sprint? Would be nice to hear some update from you MS on this most requested feature.

What a clusterfuck of an app. Super slow, extremely buggy, feature rich for the wrong reasons. Typical Microsoft.

Adding my voice to the pile. Just got pushed to Teams and could not figure out what I was missing in not being able to do this on desktop. Turns out, I wasn't missing anything.
MS - nearly 28K votes and nearly 3K comments says you should be taking this off backlog.
not given lightly commented
teams is a piece of shite, How do you guys get away with serving us up such **** - the most obvious and useful thing to do and it doesn't have it
No update since May 6th! Come on Teams! This is a basic function that any chat app should have. Why has the product manager not made this a top priority? I know people who will not use Teams just due to the lack of this feature.
