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!

Please, bring this feature in finally! I don't know anyone at my workplace who uses a smartphone version, all is on a desktop working. Speaking on behalf of several hundred people who I know personally at my organization with 2,000 employees. I wonder if I spread the message and get those hundreds to drop a comment here, what would be the result?
