Respond to messages on mobile app?

Is it possible to respond to messages using the mobile app?  I can respond when using my computer but see no option to reply on my mobile app.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Do you mean the little inbox on the bottom left of the menu bar next to your profile?

Yes. When I view the songs/messages that are in that Inbox, there are lots of options (save, add to playlist, add to queu, etc) but I am not able to reply to the message. Is there a way to do so? I have that option when using my computer but not the mobile app.

Ah, I see. I don't actually use the inbox but I seem to recall something about it being literally an 'inbox' and I think you can't reply directly from within the app.

 

Someone like @Peter__ would be able to confirm.

Yeah, Daniel is correct you can't reply on mobile.

Essentially what happened was Spotify moved from Inbox to Messages on the desktop and web player which is a conversational system (so you can send a receive) but that new system hasn't made it over to the mobile apps which are still running the old inbox system. So you get the same "inbox messages" but you can't see or send replies on the mobile apps I'm afraid.

Bummer.  Thank you to both of you for the info though.  Any idea on if they plan to change that issue so that you can reply on the mobile app?
