  1. Sort most recently used emojis on top

    It would be a mercy to put a user's most recently used emojis at the top of the emoji selection widget. This is a common user interface convenience from other messaging platforms and also smartphones.

    It's comparatively laborious to give a :thumbsup: for instance, because the naive alphabetical sorting puts a half-dozen emojis (which I've never used) above the menu item I want.

  2. Coming from Slack

    Coming from Slack, I miss including a URL for a Gif or Image and have that image display within the chat.

    Also, it would be awesome to be able to include custom Emojis as well.

  3. The OK hand emoji is missing

    It seems that the OK hand emoji has disappeared from both the emoji-one and the skype emoji collections, having me just copy paste the unicode one in to the chat. Where'd this basic emoji I used all the time go?
    And why do we even need this many sets of emoji anyway? It's not like we can add custom emoji like in Discord

  4. Change Cultural Unethical Emoji

    Hello Microsoft Teams,

    I wish to inform your team that the YES emoji in motion (the thumb moving up and down) is an insult in the Ghanaian culture. The meaning of this emoji is similar to the 'F' word. Even worse, it is an insult to womanhood and highly abominable to use in any decent and civilised conversation in Ghana. Therefore, to see anyone use this emoji during Teams or Skype meeting is an uncomfortable experience for any Ghanaian, especially students and professionals.
    It is something that needs a change now as Microsoft Teams and Skype meetings have become part…

  5. Creepy emojis need work

    The turkey emoji is kind a freaky with the sweat rolling down it. The monkey dancing frankly looks like he is making a rude gesture.

    Missing the (island) emoji from Skype, which was nice.

  6. Add metal horns or rock emojis

    Skype for Business has an awesome (rock) emoji present, yet Teams does not. As a life long metalhead, I would like to able to express my metalness to my colleagues!

    I suggest adding either a 🤘 emoji or adding the SfB animated (rock) emoji.

  7. Full gif previews

    When selecting a gif, only the first second or so of the gif plays. This means you have to select it to see the full thing. Then if you realize this does not adequately express your deep emotions, you have to remove it and perform the search all over again. Doing this repeatedly often leads to quiet weeping and existential dread.

    Without a thoughtful evaluation of the full selection of gifs, one is unable to adequately express themselves with the fine nuance required to communicate the exact emotions intended.

    Please show the full length of a gif within the preview…

  9. Eye-roll reaction

    It would be nice to have an eye-roll reaction added as an option.

  10. Emoji for thank you

    Can you consider making an emoji for thank you in Teams. Most of the time I would just like to say thank you but don't want to do this through conversation as this seems time consuming and takes up the conversation space.
    Thank you in advance.

  12. emoji configuration per user

    User should be able to enable or disable emoji and gif usage for their user interface. Right now we can only do this at the higher tenant level that then affects all users.

  13. Make the emoji's that are on their own lines smaller

    They take up so much real estate if you just send an emoji in a message by itself.

  14. Please use only one emoji set for the app but allow unicode emoji

    Depending on how you use emoji you get a different set of emoji...


    1. Using the OS emoji

    2. Using the emoji button

    3. Using the :emoji: style shortcuts

    4. You can't reliably use : style emoji because things like :s override them (so you can't type :***: for example)

    Please unify on one. I would recommend following the model slack uses and use :emoji: style emoji for everything done in the app, but support unicode emoji just in case people use it from mobile devices.

  16. map :+1: and :-1: to :thumbsup: and :thumbsdown: emoticons

    Some systems for markdown emoticons use +1 and -1 instead of thumbsup and thumbsdown respectively... it would be really nice if they would map to the respective emoticons..

    :+1: becomes :thumbsup: and :-1: becomes :thumbsdown:

  20. Show correct size of gif, less funny when it's cropped

    When a gif is brought in through the built in giphy app, it resizes and crops the gif, losing the comedic effect.
