Reply to messages under the Chat Tab
I want to be able to reply to messages just like in the teams chats under the General Chat Tab.
I agree. This is a critical must have feature. Not having it causes me problems every day.

There are 5 or 6 different requests for this same feature. If you join then, there are probably enough votes to get implemented?
My colleagues and I use chat extensively, particularly since the Covid19 lockdown, and find it frustrating to have to resort to the mobile app when quoting a previous post. If "Reply" is available in channel conversations and is available in the IOS and Android apps for Chat conversations, could it please be made available in the desktop app Chat too!
possibly this is asking for the same as https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39353152-reply-to-specific-message-in-chat is. Please vote there (too)!

Are there any updates on this? This is an incredibly helpful feature, it shouldn't be limited to channel conversations only. Capabilities should match those of the mobile app, which allows replies to messages in chat as well as channels.
When is this available? It is on the mobile app version, why not in the desktop version?!
This is a must-have.
I fully agree

Every one in my company hated Teams when we had to migrate from Skype because of this.
It's a shame that we have the feature inside Team-chat and not on simple chat. They supposed to be the same tool! Makes no sense at all.

I fully agree! I hear a lot of people complain about this; they are used to having this function in WhatsApp, would be very convenient to have it in the Chat function of Teams too.
I think it would make the Chat function much more powerful, because it is more clear to which previous message you reply.
