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.

Here is your answer:
But I think this simple and important feature should be free as is in mobile.
I am doing the "quote" using the shift > but the format is not the same if you compare how it works in a phone version. This funcionality is very important. should be added.
1) select all including the sender
5)wrote your msg and enter

How is this not a feature already? Mind-boggling.

I've created a workaround using AutoHotKey keyboard automation to do an inline reply. With this just you need to
#1. select a message that you want to do quote reply by triple-click or mouse select
#2. Press Ctrl + T
#3. just type the response and hit enter to send the message.
Check the attached Gif for the quick demo and find the AHK script in the link to google drive.
if you are looking for a detailed demo about AHK (AutoHotKey) and setting up this one, please check this video on youtube.
Definately a wanted feature..... painful in chats with multiple conversations going on

Skype has a great feature: message quoting in chats. After we switched to MS Teams we were surprised it is missing. It would be great to have quoting capability instead of copying/pasting.
This will be a great feature on Microsoft Teams website

Not having this is painful...having to copy paste the message we are replying to and then put a hyphen and reply.
Its even more dangerous when we replying with Yes or No to some questions and there is no trail
Oh Microsoft, please do the same at least:
is it so hard to do feature for a corporation?
@alex any release date ?
Agreed. This is needed now.
I have been able to do it in some chats, but not all. Strange.

Please is it possible to reply to a specific chat or quote a chat and respond?

I don't understand why this is on the Backlog. It's a much-needed feature and available on most modern communication app platforms. And it's also available in your mobile version. What exactly is the hold up on this? Makes no sense at all.

What Alex and all of Microsoft is trying to say is that please users switch to better platforms ... after all who uses Windows and Windows desktop clients these days, it is all Mac, Linux and Chrome.
Can you please let us know when the feature will be added. Also please share the latest update
