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.

+1 to add this! It's a simple feature that helps A LOT!
PLEASE add this! We (startup with 25 employees) will go back to slack if this is not possible soon, it is so tedious!
Hi, it is possible to do a quote of a specific message. Do this:
1) Select the msg
2) Ctrl C
3) click on the place made to write things
4) Shift >
5) Ctrl V
6) Enter Enter
7) Write your reply
Would it be easier if there was just an option "quote msg"
amazing that this feature is still on backog ...
This item is very useful, we need it, please.
No idea why this basic but essential item hasn't been implemented. Was even in skype!
Such a basic function and not available for MS, only in the mobile app. That is embarassing!
please :) it's/should be the standard in social media chat formats :)

Come on everyone I love to pick up my mobile phone every time I want to reply directly to a chat vs using my desktop (and there is the added benefit of everyone thinking you are a ninja cause you can do something they cannot - RE reply directly in a chat) - yes lets fix it :-). Any anyway we KNOW the code does not exist since this functionality does not exist (on mobile?) so therefore it would be a ton of work to simply transfer the code to desktop with such a tiny engineering team like MS has - patient!

I hope as well that we will have this feature before Covid-19 ends in next 2-3 years

I hope MS can have this function before Covid-19 wipe out all human race!
4 years and still we dont have this.... Im going to ask in my next job if they use Teams before accepting an offer
I generally use below steps for reply on specific message.
1. Copy the message.
2. Type your response in chat box
3. Press Shift key to go to next line
4. Type > to get grey section like quote
5. Paste the original message in gray section
Hope this helps as of now.
Skype has this - irony is that both applications are owned by MS.

I can not believe this function is not yet available!!! I think this is the top priority.
This really should be a feature of a team collaboration app! Did someone just 'forget' to add the function....this causes productivity issues!

This is very much needed! I regret not having it every single time I use teams, to the point that sometimes I have to pull out my phone and reply to something specific since this support is absent on Desktop. MS please this might be the biggest missing thing on the Teams Desktop App right now!
Well there is a 4 step solution for replying to specific messages, which is:
1. Copy the message.
2. Click on Format located in the text box.
3. On the toolbar click on Quote.
4. Paste the original message and then type your own message.
MS, please do provide a straightforward solution
Absolutely necessary! Allows for tagged responses to specific messages in Forums/Groups.
