If you’re using Google Chat for work, you may find it helpful to know how to quote and reply to specific messages. This can be a useful feature when you need to reference a specific message in a conversation. Quoting and replying to messages can also help keep your chat organized and make it easier to follow the conversation.
So, if you are wondering what are some of the tools to quote and reply to a specific message in google chat, look no further!
Using Three Backticks To Quote Messages in Google Chat
If you’re using Google Chat, you may have noticed that when you type a message, three backticks “` before and after the quoted message. For example:
``` this is the quoted message```
This is actually a feature of Google Chat, and it allows you to easily quote (or paraphrase) a message in the same chat room. To use this feature, just highlight the text you want to quote and copy it. Then hit the three backticks keys and paste the text and hit three backticks again after the message.
Although it seems quite manual but it is still a handy tool for making sure that your message is accurately quoted, and it can be a lifesaver if you’re trying to remember the exact wording of a message you received.

Google Chat is an amazing way to stay connected with friends and family, but it can be frustrating when you’re trying to quote a specific message. Instead of having to copy and paste the entire message, you can use a Chrome extension to quote specific text in your conversation.
