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.
yes, please add on desktop app. It's very annoying to have to go use my phone while responding to specific messages when I'm working on my computer.

now this is more important then ever for desktop. as more users are using it in desktop model. due to work from home. and having an option to refer to a specific message is needed alot. when a chat goes on.
How come you can reply to a specific message on the Ipad app but not on the desktop app? This is a really useful feature
We are looking forward to this.

As simple as include as part of Teams Quote Master from systemz.io, it is a important and simple function that it is unaaceptable that someone is trying to monetize it.
Yeah, this really needs to be bumped up the backlog list. It's a must and a really annoying thing not to have, especially when everyone is remote working these days. Clear communication is a must... otherwise it's just a lot of people shouting into a room! :) Context can be lost.
Need this feature asap!

I would also really appreciate if we could reply to specific messages in a chat also on the desktop app.
Mateen Khan commented
pls Add this on desktop app.
Please add a reply button to a specific message on the desktop app.
At first, I thought it was only me having this issue as the phone app has it.

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.
we badly need it. my staff dropped the team because of this and they are using WhatsApp instead. And mind you we are paying for Teams.
Please add quote function ASAP. very much needed!

I think this feature is very useful for improve the communication in the chat windows, with this option we can reply to previous messages.
It result very helpful in the channels and in the mobile app, but we also need it available in all the chats windows. I hope Microsoft really hear the voice of the costumers and include it asap.
