Hello, may I know why it's 2020 and replying to a comment is still NOT A FEATURE on desktop app?
Why things like video background made the cut but not Replying To A Comment on Desktop?
This is 2020 and literally every single communication app can do that, but not a chat app geared toward enterprises?

@depwnz Well, I hear you on this one. For what it's worth it's "on the backlog"...
If you would like to do it manually.
1. Mark the post/reply and copy it
2. Go to the "Type a new message" field (bottom) or choose "Reply"
3. Press shift and >
4. Paste and press Enter twice

That is on the backlog. Vote for it and comment on uservoice.
You can reply to a chat message in mobile app, but it would be great it worked in channel conversations too.

Maybe not so hard to develop that but they also have to consider other things like compliance, notifications and other stuff. So it is not just that function they have to develop. Also they have x numbers of developers, so Microsoft must consider how important a feature is to their customers. I guess a feature like Together mode creates a bigger buzz among customers than a reply function.
But as I wrote, vote and comment on the uservoice. Comments are important for Microsoft to see why something is needed.

The interesting thing about this is that if you are chatting in a "Team" you can reply to specific messages, just not in individual or group chats....

I stumbled on a means to reply to a "chat" in Teams from my iPad - swipe right on the chat and it will copy that chat and let you reply to it. Real cool. I headed over to the desktop app and still no way to do it there. Obviously in a channel you can reply direct to a conversation to keep it all together, but so far, I only see it easily done from the Ipad/iPhone (have not tried Android - would assume it would work on any mobile device) in the chats.
