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.
Just want to add my voice to the many voices here P L E A D I N G for this feature.

Any roadmap or expected date (something like Q1/ Q2 2021) ??
This is a pretty basic feature really, come on Microsoft! If I can do it on WhatsApp desktop I should be able to do it on Teams!
Microsoft development team. Please pick this thread up and just add the reply function. It is not hard to make.

Good to hear that everyone need it, but it's very bad that there is no solution for a long time. As the reply feature is working on mobile apps it seems like they don't have a good developer for web (yes, exactly web, as Teams desktop client app is web-browser app based on Chromium engine with some additional features)
I hope to get threading on Teams before I move to live on Mars
Jezus Microsoft development team. Please pick this thread up and just add the **** reply function. It is not hard to make.

Nowadays, Teams is one of the most used desktop work tools in companies. How is it possible that it is only available on mobile?
This feature should be a top priority, as we can see from the thousands of feedbacks. It turns out to be a major flaw in the User Experience
Please this is so basic
Marcel de Klerk commented
Agreed with previous comments. This is such a standard feature nowadays in all messaging apps out there. Should be very high on the backlog.
Nonya Biznas commented
seriously- on the backlog??
the fact that every single other messaging app but Teams, has a reply function for the desktop version- its simply embarrassing.
this function should be among the top priority features.
how difficult can it already be? a decent programmer can probably push the feature in one work day. With Microsoft's resources it can take much less.
It's a very is simple function requirement when it comes to chatting nowadays..

When this one is going to be available? Seriously!

This request has been in progress since 2016 and till now It has not been implemented. How sad is that!
This feature must be mandatory !!!
Hello, do you have an estimated delivery date por this development? when we create a chat with multiple persons, there are some replys from old messages that we need to include. The messages are not very clear if someone responds after a message that has been sent before. On Whatsapp this feafuture works fine by hitting reply and also on Teams on the mobile. Please advise.

When it is going to be on desktop app, this is very useful, PLEASE GET OUT BACKLOG!!!!!
Similarly, in channels, we should either have this or nested replies. Channels bring us the ability to have multiple conversations going on at once, by starting new conversations separately, but inevitably new conversations form within those conversations, and it's difficult to let those conversations play it in the single thread. All social media platforms know this. Facebook has one level of nesting which is significantly better than 0, twitter and reddit have seemingly infinite nesting.
Teams is great, but this simple function to reply to a chat message should be considered Mandatory. It is already available in other products and when we are discussing multiple subjects in a chat we need to way to reply to a specific message.

App is awesome, but this should be an essential feature nowadays! Thanks!
