  1. that you improve the GIF search

    I suggest that you would need to refine your GIF searches. The keyword search is inaccurate.

    I searched with the word "Good morning sunshine" the gif I was after did not appear.
    If I remove the word "Good", then the intended GIF appear although the image has the word "Good morning sunshine" and the GIF is tagged with "Good morning sunshine".

    Looks like a bug

  3. I'd like to see an emoji that indicates you've read something, but not necessarily liked it, disliked it, etc.

  4. Emoji for 'stepped away'

    Aside from the hands up, applause buttons during a conf call, can we perhaps have a 'stepped away for moment' emoji? Perhaps a be right back (BRB) icon?

  6. Add a red X emoji as a reply option to existing emojis

    In a work environment there are a lot of questions in regards to does anyone have or does anyone know. It would be much quicker to just reply with a red x to indicate a no response, rather than typing out no.

  7. Add :giphy {search-term} text shortcut or add a /giphy command

    When in a conversation it would be nice to not rely on the mouse to select the gif shortcut as this is cumbersome. Adding a /gif command to search and insert a gif or add a :gif {search-term} into the conversation would be easier to manage

  10. Please add not done icon

    While reacting to a chat with emoji we just have standard 6 emojis. It would be nice to add not done(thumbs down) emoji as a response

  11. Comic Chat mode

    Microsoft had a product called Microsoft Comic Chat (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicrosoftComicChat) that was an IRC (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InternetRelayChat) client that allowed users to pick a comic avatars to represent a user; this character could express a specified emotion, making the communication a more emotive and expressive experience.

    I'd love to see a 21 century version of this capability built into Microsoft Teams, even one where I could build the equivalent of an Xbox Avatar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar_(Xbox)) and even a feature that could use data from my camera to show facial expressions and movements of the…

  12. Implement a frequently used emoji selection

    I love the addition of the additional emojis, however we are missing the frequently used emoji section that existed before. With more selections to choose from, it can sometimes take awhile to find that shrug or face palm you're looking for.

  13. let me change the icons available for reactions in teams chat

    Allow users to customize the icons available as reactions in teams chat. Ideally let us pull from the larger world of emoticons, but at the least a somewhat larger set. Heart icon is NOT appropriate in workplace setting. Pretty much limited to the thumbs up icon and occasionally sad face

  14. Bring more inclusion & diversity to GIFs!

    Bring more inclusion & diversity to GIFs! I have a diverse team of both women and men and of various ethnic backgrounds. I struggle to find GIFs that represent us as a team, rather than a subset. For example, I looked for a cheerleader GIF to recognize a black female I wanted to recognize as being our team cheerleader, always positive and rooting for our success. I looked for a cheerleader GIF, and saw primarily GIFs that represented thin framed, white women. I resorted to using the one single cartoon-type GIF that showed in the results. Up your diversity, Microsoft!

  15. use consistent emoji behavior

    The (emoji) for keyboard instead of :emoji: is inconsistent with almost every other platform. This is not an improvement.

  16. Emoticons

    The new emoticons on Teams are great. The absence of most recently used tab makes locating those frequently used time consuming.

    In adddition a few more options on the shortcut tab linked to messages will help.

  17. Skin tone choice for reactions and overall emoji use across Teams.

    Similar to other topics but want to clarify the various skin tone options should be available for "reactions" and all parts of MS Teams where you can use an emoji. Setting a default skin tone is key and inclusive - would be a good micro-step in dismantling systemic racism.

  18. Negative Reactions

    Almost all the reactions are positive, or agreeable, there are times however where you need to disagree. Using the angry reaction sucks, and does not convey disapproval without also making it look like your about to lose your composure.

    Please add a thumbs down, circle with an x, 0%, or other icons to show disapproval.

  20. Why was 'thumbs up' emoji removed?

    Where has the 'thumbs up' icon gone? Why was it even removed? Tens of emojis I don't even know what they mean and this one gone! A middle vinger is a different meaning and the person who complained is only reflecting his/her (or whatever) own attitude (a not very positive one, if I may say). I also note it only has one vote, no election would be accepted on the basis of one vote.

    In the Netherlands a 'tumbs up' does not have a negative connotation and many of my colleagues use it.
