  1. Expand emojis to reflect the diversity of ethnicity, gender, sexuality and disability of your user base

    Emoji set is limited and almost exclusively white and male. This doesn't reflect the make up of most modern workplaces and certainly doesn't reflect the make up of your global user base.

  2. Change the Default Emojis to Reflect Different Skin Tones

    The set of default emojis does not allow different skin tones. Each time a user wishes to use a different skin tone emoji, they must use "Windows key + ;" to see a menu of other emojis. This is awkward to use on an ongoing basis during fast-moving meetings.

  3. diverse emojis

    We need more diverse emojis, particularly race. This is an opportunity for Microsoft to reflect the diversity of its users. While there is a practical limit for the number of emojis, there does not seem a reason not to add more. If you need help deciding which ones to add, I am sure this community or the Microsoft ERGs could help.

  4. better emojis!

    SImilar to slack, please have a large range of emojis. Its frustrating to have limited emojis as emojis can save time in how we respond to people's comments. Thank you very much!

  5. 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…

  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. Make emoji's more gender, culturally and racially inclusive

    Dear Microsoft,

    I and several of my colleagues have been using teams for over a year and are horrified that you have refused to pay any attention to user requests for appropriate emoji's.

    Emoji's on Microsoft teams do not give users: 1. options to select appropriate skin tone 2. select female emojis (it is actually quite telling that the only emoji that is clearly female is the 'don't talk' to me emoji! 3. There are no culturally sensitive emoji's, where are the headscarf options?

    Emoji's are a tool for self expression, your decision to exclude skin tones or any cultural…

  8. Facepalm like reaction needed

    A new set of reactions to substitute like functionality is just great. However what we need is a facepalm emoji reaction to convey the true reactions to many posts - let's make it happen!

  9. An ability to change the color of the emojis

    I'm a brown person, and I'd like to be able to choose a brown hand for the thumbs up sign and some of the face emoji's. The globe is a colorful place

  12. include Indian head wiggle as an emoticon

    Include Indian head wiggle as an emoticon. It is of major cultural significance to ca. 20% of the world's population, arguably higher significance then thumbs up or other pre-included emoticons

  19. Ability to disable chat reactions

    Please provided a setting that would allow a user to disable the emoji reactions on the chat feature. This gets in the way when trying to copy and paste, or simply hovering a cursor over a message.

  20. Emoji list while typing should remember last selection

    I use :thumbsup: a lot. But it's in like 7th place every time, after all :thumbsdown: in every skin tone. The list should also show as soon as i type :, not only after i typed a character already.
