Unfortunately because of changing priorities, this feature was moved to the backlog. The team hopes to pick it up again in the near future.
Thank you for your feedback! The team has finalized the designs for this feature request, and work is planned to begin shortly. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
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!

In general, I think the Teams UI stinks. I really do expect more from a company as resourced and experienced as Microsoft. Didn't they do any internal user testing? We can't be the only ones to think of these things.
