Thank you for your continued feedback. As many people have pointed out, this is available on mobile today. Support for replying to a specific message is on the backlog for desktop. I’ll let you know when we have progress to share. Thanks.
Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.

Can we make this option configurable? Due to network connectivity and headset device issues, sometimes it is easier to dial/call into the meeting from my phone and bluetooth headset, then join the meeting from my laptop to view the content. Now that this has been disabled, I can no longer receive calls to my phone, and I don't have a good headset to use in conjunction with my laptop.
Can we have make this a configurable option, instead of having one or the other?
In addition to being available on Windows & Mac, we have released iOS 2×4 (mobile) and 3×3 (iPad), along with Large Gallery and Together Mode. You will see these options with the latest version from the app store. We are targeting availability for Android clients (mobile and tablet) this quarter as well.
