would it be possible to add the reply button to the chats in Teams just like in the Teams channels. It would be easier then to reply to a previous statement when the chat grows and get bigger with lots of statements and perhaps you need to reply to an older one.
Something like Whatsapp, where you can select the statement and reply to that one only. That would become a huge enhancement within company that are largely using Teams.
Would recommend you vote for it. It's not been picked up by Microsoft yet, however the more votes the more likely they will. You could also consider bringing up this feature request at the next Teams AMA or raising it on social (I.e. Twitter @MicrosoftTeams)
Hope that answers your question. Would be good to see this functionality soon.
