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 patience. We are thrilled to that replying to a chat message in the desktop client is now available as part of our Public Preview. It is expected to roll out to the public ring over the next several weeks.
For details on switching to the Microsoft Teams Public Preview version, please see : https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreview.
We look forward to your preview feedback!

@Alex It seems that something else has been broken because on Linux on any web browser I am facing an annoying issue with embedded images in chats where those images hide completely the text of the particular message :(

You saved my life. Thanks

And I don't have the function..
For those lamenting the loss of the ">" immediate inline quote, try "> " (adding a space).

Now please add the option to choose where to download files and an actual fullscreen and it will finally have all the basic features it should have been shipped in version 1.0

Can this be extended to the Your Teams chat? As in a group chat not just an individual chat?
L/M aka T commented
I am one of the thousands that were waiting for this feature But did not expected that you with this rollout would inhibited the use of the markup language ">" that offered the quoted format without having to enable the rich client for writing.
I am sad and would like to have it back please

What a great addition! Thank you for taking up this initiative!!
Great to see this finally available.
Please bring back the ability to create quoted text manually using the '>' shortcut key. This allows the user to quickly extract and quote snippets of a message or quote text from other threads or sources.

It had disappeared to me too, but I got it back today.
Yep, the reply feature was working on the preview but now dropped off.

Hi this was working for me last week and I shared it with the group, there's is still working but my reply option has disappeared.
I'm seeing the same as some others on here.
The reply feature was available and working last week however this week it's gone. My version details are:
You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.4.00.26376 (64-bit). It was last updated on 22/09/2021.
I have Developer and Public Preview enabled.

This is just super super super important for our use cases. If you compare to the "LINE" desktop App, it has that "Reply" to a specific message feature and it is just SO SO SO much better. Please consider to learn from that "LINE" desktop App and improve MS Teams. Thanks!
Same as other, After enabling public preview, Reply feature was working fine for me.
Suddenly, I am not able to see the option since last week
Why is that ?
This feature was only requested 5 years and 264 pages ago, why are some people so impatient.
Yes you can, Anonymous. You've gone this long without it. You can wait a little longer.
