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 feedback! The team is hard at work on this highly requested feature. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

Isn't this rolling out this fall? Why isn't there an update here?

I donno how Microsoft doesn't provide that through the desktop app... it really annoys me that i can't reply to a certain message!!!
i have to search for the text and copy and paste then put my reply under it to let the team know what i'm taking about ...
Is it really so hard to include this in the next release? I can't believe the Android app has it and not the desktop app ... and I am also surprised there is not more pressure from enterprise customers about that feature, it's just so much needed when communicating with the team ...

WhatsApp has it, even my SMS messenger has it, and probably even smoke signal has it nowadays. But Teams is still developing it for Desktop.
So I'm seeing that this has been in the works for 5 years and still isn't a thing.... I mean. Slack has it... And Slack can work with Trello and a lot of other apps... Might have to recommend to my org to switch off of Teams.
Microsoft has jumped the shark, we've been begging for this feature for years, and still we wait...

basic + essential feature request. 49000 votes, 256 pages of user comments, first requested in Nov 2016 .
Now is Aug 2021. and still not available.
Is this Microsoft's attitude towards their paying enterprise customers ?
This is farcical at this point, I look forward to the roadmap being updated to next month at the end of the month again.

Seriously? I can't believe that Teams still has no reply button in 2021 on a Desktop version.
Many users have asked about this feature since 2019 !!

I am following this thread since last 1 year. I know we all are quite tired of the delay.
I have 1 HAPPY NEWS. I can see the option in our org's MS Teams Desktop app.
I was surprised to see it as well. After little digging I found out that we are the TAP users (some specific agreement between our org and Microsoft). I guess we got it as part of some live testing (I'm not a tech person).
So little more patience, I guess they will roll this out in Aug for larger public.
FYI: Microsoft Teams Version 1.4.00.20314 (64-bit)-E. It was last updated on 03-Aug-21.

"This feature is live on Desktop! If you right click in the available space of a message window, you will see 'Reply' as an option now. Happy Teams-ing !"
What version are you using? I'm on 1.4.00.19572 (64-bit)...last updated on 2021-07-29.
and all I can see is "Copy" as an option in one-to-one chat on desktop if I right click. If I click on the three dots I see the Save this message etc. but no Reply option

Indeed. The community agrees that the 'Reply' feature should be added to the Microsoft Teams Desktop.
We will appreciate it if the development team already start working on the 'Reply' feature in Microsoft Team Desktop.
"The team is hard at work" !? from May and still nothing. looks like a basic feature to me
Bridie Easton commented
@alex - any update on this? Feels like a basic feature to add, and would be extremely helpful.
Haley Jackson commented
Another user commented earlier today that the feature has been pushed out to August, do we know when in August this will be available? I sometimes use my mobile app just so I can use this feature, which is a bit ridiculous.
Cobus Viljoen commented
Could really use the 'reply' feature that is available on the IOS and Andriod apps in the windows desktop app!
Is there any reason for having this feature on MS-Teams-Android but not having it on MS-Teams-W10?
Ognjen Pejanovic commented
After more then 5 years of waiting the feature finally appeared in the roadmap.
It first it was April 2021, then it was postponed to May, June, July and now it is postponed to August.
It seems that the delivery of this No.1 requested feature has been pushed out again to August :
Seriously Microsoft, why has this been delayed again? Are your product managers even reading this UserVoice page?
