1. Open the app and find the comment worth quoting. Unlike on the website, there’s no “Quote” icon on the mobile app.

3. For Android, tap the “Reply” icon, and select the section of the comment you want to quote, from the menu options that pops up, tap “Quote” and the highlighted text will appear as a quote in the reply field.
