Microsoft has announced that Quoted Replies are now available for Microsoft Teams in Public Preview.

Quoted reply allows you to select messages in chat that you want to include in your response. It is a good 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.

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.

To use it, click on a specific message in a conversation and select Reply from the Right-Click menu.

The feature is available on the Windows, macOS, iOS and Android apps, but not the web apps and is available with external users except Skype for Business and Skype for Consumer as those experiences are plain text only. To enable it admins need to enable Public Preview features.
