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!

Even better: if we could have the possibility to chat with those currently in the lobby, for instance to let them know how long it is going to take before they can join again (so that they don't have to stay there and just wait).
This would be incredibly useful, I agree. I work with financing of innovation projects and we also have the need to exclude participants due to conflict of interest from parts of a discussion. Right now we have to send them a separate message (via mail, as they very often are not part of the organisation) and ask them to join again. It would be great if we could exclude/bring back participants. If possible: log this information automatically in the meeting chat. Thanks!
