facebook messenger quick replies feature

Finally, Facebook adds message reply option to the Facebook Messenger

Facebook has finally added a reply option to Facebook Messenger. After the update, long pressing on a message would allow you to reply to it.

Quoted replies have always been one of the most demanded features in Facebook Messenger and it is good to see that the developers have finally looked into the matter.

The feature was already available in WhatsApp, another chat platform owned by Facebook itself and it was kind of annoying to see Facebook not incorporating the same in the Messenger ecosystem. As a matter of fact, the quick replies in WhatsApp have constantly got new updates and bug fixes.
