  1. gifs should autoplay

    gifs lose their impact if someone needs to actively hit the play button. the point of gifs is that they play automatically to be visible immediately. if it doesn't play there is no point in using it.

  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. spoiler font

    Please create a spoiler font that sets the text to the same color as the background.

    This is frequently useful for humor, as well as "try to solve it yourself" tech support / questions / trivia

  4. Have ALL the emjoi's appear when using : :

    So here is a very basic emoji syntax, :joy: but for some reason when you do :j...: it only shows :joystick: Why are so many emoji's missing? It seems like half are missing when you try to do : : with an emoji name

  5. Rename the female superhero emoji

    The male super hero emoji is called 'man superhero' but the female superhero emoji is called 'super mum.'

    Please can you rename the female superhero to something like 'female superhero?'
    I would like to be able to praise my female work colleagues without reference to parenthood. Females can be superheroes without having children and it would be great if the emoji names could reflect this.
    Thank you!

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Update emojis

    Update and expand those emojis. The emojis currently listed in Teams are from Skype and limited at that. Way too old. Please update.

  11. 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:

  14. 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.

  17. More diverse images for GIFs and stickers, they are almost ALL white men.

    The images in the GIF and sticker pages are predominantly white and male. How about some diversity here!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
