You can reply to a discussion within the Canvas Student app.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Note: The process of responding to a focused discussion or a threaded discussion is the same, although the layout of the discussion may look different depending on the depth of the discussion thread.
