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.
On the Backlog since May? Its the most requested feature... Please give an update.

yes please fast
Replying to a specific message should be a basic for any communication tools! how do you expect user to reply in group chat, its so confusing!! no wonder people are ditching teams and using slack!😒
This is not even too big a feature that should be taking this much time to be picked from the backlog. We really need this feature as it gets really inconvenient to discuss something in the chat. Please take this on priority and get it introduced as soon as possible.
Being able to reply to a message is a basic requirement, Obviously developers/mgmt don't use their own app. No excuses. For a trillion dollar IT company, this is pretty pathetic.
Come on guys! We just migrated from Slack and now you don't have such BASIC collaborative features? Stop spending time on fancy all-sitting-in-same-room-video features and fix the basics!
Dear Alex. How long will it take from the backlog to production? I mean your answer is from the 6th of may and the feature is still not here. And I doubt that it is so complicated.
I really feel we need this for group chats. In IT for example it's hard to talk about multiple items in a group chat without being able to thread a convo. This is a basic feature we really need.

this is highly important, you should be working on it for months :(
this is very much needed indeed. Talking to big teams like we do, this feature from the mobile app is urgent for the PC version.
thanks and hope you see this implemented soon.
It takes too long. Be quicker guys

When is the "Reply to a Specific message" feature expected in the desktop version of Teams?
Anil Aleti commented
Dear MS Teams Engineers, Thank you for extending this feature to Mobile Teams app already. Maybe it will help to extend to laptops/desktop - maybe by typing Ctrl+R (R for referenced)...or by clicking on the More options "Format" icon in Teams, for a particular chat message
Here is what you can do as a workaround:
1. Highlight original message and press Ctrl+C to copy
2. Go to reply editor and press Shift+Alt+. (effectively Alt+>) to create quote
3. Press Ctrl+V to paste
4. Press Enter twice to start typing your reply
Not that it matters, but here is the voice of another desperate user pleading for this feature to make it to the desktop version.
I think it's actually more annoying that I can do it on the mobile app but can't do it on the desktop app. Id almost not have the feature at all, then go oh I wish i can reply but do i really want to open my phone do that right now?
