what's happening on 22nd Sep? A major release?

status update please
Great that this feature is already in progress! I looked for this space exactly for asking this!
Its the usual Microsoft shambles. They employ 3rd world migrants as product owners and use school levers for interpreters.
Basic functionality in nearly every other tool is missing, while they prioritize razzmatazz and the inconsequential in their backlog.

it feels really uncomfortable to work with the chats without such reply on the Teams desktop! Everybody is used to reply on messages and without it we fall back to the past where we needed to think about which message the answer was for.
Since this is available on the major mobile versions and such replies are able to be shown on the desktop version, I don't understand, why this topic hasn't got million of votes!

While appreciating your efforts to implement the reply to individual messages, I would like to request it to be default on Teams desktop, since it is very important in an office environment and major other social media platforms using it as a default feature. However, the Teams mobile version has it already and when it comes to Desktop version it is a vital requirement. Many thanks
It doesn't make any sense why the desktop version has no reply version.. Its kinda glitch.
please obviously we need it!
Please please~ we need this feature so bad on a daily basis. Can't wait to see it implemented on desktop app.

it would improve Teams desktop app two times
That is the most key feature any chat should have. Cannot believe how hard desktop app cannot implement it? 😅
5 years, 50,035 votes, 5,220 comments and still no 'reply' option in Microsoft's main collaboration application running on their own OS smh
