    New Quoted Reply feature in Chat for Microsoft Teams now available

    Public Preview


    Quoted reply allows you to select messages in chat that you want to include in your response. It is a great way to add context and clarity with who you are conversing with whether it is a recent message or from one earlier in the conversation.

    This feature is now available to everyone in Public Preview.

    How to enable

    • Use an existing chat or create a new one. One on one, group, or meeting chat.
    • Example
      • User 1 writes multiple messages to user 2

      • User 2 opens the menu on the first message to use the reply feature

      • User 2 writes their response with the reply embedded

      • Final result after sending it.

    A useful function available is being able to click on the quoted portion of the message. Doing this will highlight the original message and also move the chat display to that location.

    Note: If you need information about enabling the public preview itself, see “Enable the public preview for Teams” below.
