  2. Allow embedding animated content (mp4/gif etc)

    Animated content should not be limited to Giphy, it would be nice to be able to use any GIF link or even short mp4 to show moving media. Right now I can paste a gif but it quickly gets replaced by a static image.

  3. Animated GIFs should be free for everyone, especially if you have an Office 365 Subscription

    I am an Office 365 home subscriber, yet when I join Teams calls created by friends and schools, I can't use animated GIFs! This is a huge part of human expression, and Microsoft is holding this expression back! Please fix this and restore conversations for everyone!

  4. add "Happy" to chat reactions

    Hi, On the current reactions that are available, we have the following

    Like
    Heart
    Laugh
    Love
    Suprised
    Sad
    Angry

    Would it be possible to include a "Happy", using the Laugh reaction sometimes get's misconstrued as sarcasm, and just putting a thumbs up is a bit clinical, it shows not emotion.

  5. More GIFs

    With this trying time, and a lot of us working from home. It would be appreciated if there was a larger gif selection because they make us laugh and feel more like we are working in the same space. Thanks!

  7. #MicrosoftTeams emojis are too limited. Need one with a face mask and one that indicated rainy weather (umbrella or cloud) @ minimum

  8. Allow Gifs to Auto-play

    Currently when gifs are posted in MS Teams, they require user interaction to be played, which defeats much of the joy in using them as replacements for standard emojis. Many other persistent chat platforms allow automatic playback, which seems to drive their use over other forms of expression.

  9. Enable teams policy to stop all animation Gify's based on user

    A policy can be created to stop animated Gify's from being sent but it doesn't apply to receiving them. Personnel with sensory issues are bombarded by animated Gify's and makes it difficult to work .

  13. A "No Worries" emoji for use in Australia would be great. Sometimes "like" is just not appropriate.

    An Example:
    Someone posts that there car has broken down and they need to take it in to get fixed.
    A "Like" is not appropriate.
    A "No Worries" means I hear what your saying, and that's ok.

  14. Thumbs Down Button

    This should be a basic feature, as the only other option is an angry face....and it's not always that intense.

  18. External access users also have the right to use praise

    External access users also have the right to use praise!

    I know I can't share files, but I can't praise text-based chats.
