Microsoft Teams will get a new feature in November 2023, allowing users to easily forward messages in Teams chats with just a right-click, according to the latest entry in the Microsoft 365 Roadmap.

The news comes just days after Microsoft unveiled that the new Microsoft Teams, also dubbed Teams 2.0, will be the new default client for the app, from now on, replacing the Classic Teams.

As Teams 2.0 comes with a faster interface, an easier-to-follow design, and overall greater usability, it’s only natural Microsoft would allow users to quickly forward messages with just a click.

Not to mention that Copilot is also coming to Teams in November, effectively allowing users to work with it on replying to such messages.

The new feature will arrive on all Teams versions, including the new Teams for Education announced by Microsoft at the same time. It’s good to know that classic Teams will not receive any new features in the future, most likely starting in 2024, so it would be good to upgrade to the new version.

How to forward messages in Teams chats

Well, we will have to wait until November to have a proper guide on how to forward messages, exactly, but for now, Microsoft says it’s quite simple.

Teams users will be able to forward messages from one chat to another, by accessing the right-click menu. The Redmond-based tech giant will also allow users to add additional content to their forwarded messages.

Plus, users will be able to forward messages 1:1 and group chats, as well.

Forward messages quickly from one chat to another using the right-click menu. You can add additional content to the message to provide context and clarity for the recipient. You can forward messages to 1:1 chats and group chats.
