Microsoft Teams users can reply to messages in Chats

Microsoft Teams desktop version gets a feature that enables the users to quote or reply to a specific message on the chat or the channel.  This news was shared on Linked In recently.

When you are a member of a large group it is difficult to reply to queries or ask for clarification on a specific message.  Unlike the Android or iOS apps,  the desktop client does not support the reply to a specific message in 1:1 groups or chats.

Here the new feature helps the users and it works similarly to the other messaging apps. With the reply feature, users can reply to a specific message by hovering over it, click on the ellipsis option.  There will be the reply option to reply to it directly.

The ability to reply to a specific message on the chat or the channel is a highly requested feature on the Teams UserVoice website and it is a very useful feature.  Currently, there is no date when the feature will be available on the desktop but we can expect the new feature later this year or early next year.
