I wish to share a link to a specific message in Teams chat ... however only options are

 

Save this message

Mark as unread

Share to Outlook

Translate

 

 

the ability to copy a link to a chat message is extremely handy ... its available on say Slack why not on Teams ?   or perhaps its a config setting disabled at my work ?

It's available for Teams channel messages, but not for chat messages. And it kind of makes sense, as the latter are private by design and the link can only be used by direct participants in the chat (1:1 or group).
