How can I reply to message in room?

I started using HipChat room. I tried to find reply to message option in HipChat room. But no luck. Could you please help me to know whether there is any option to this. I can see there are three dots. If we click on it.. its showing no actions available.

HipChat doesn't currently offer the option to reply to messages directly. For some additional details, please see the answer at

You can also vote / watch / comment on HCPUB-1170 to be notified of any progress on the feature.

What about this API method:

It sounds like something that would allow resplying to messages. Any idea if I can use that to add a way to reply?

It seems that that API is mainly used by some addons to validate that a certain message exists before responding with a message of its own. It doesn't actually modify the UI to incidate a reply, however. This basically make it the same as the send message API.

I would expect a more full-featured reply-to API if we end up adding dedicated UX in the clients to support it (a feature request that we've had, but not currently on the roadmap).
