  1. Allow the hiding of embedded images, animated gifs, videos - like Slack does

    Users can paste/embed large, wild, distracting images, animated gifs, videos, etc, into the conversation window. That is fine, but recipients and senders should be able to later HIDE those, because they're ever-present and very distracting--until the conversation progresses long enough that the distracting images get scrolled out of view.

    Slack allows these to be hidden and it's a very nice feature.

  2. Block gifs per user

    Stop the noise!

    I cannot work with all the damned blinking and cutesy images. I'm trying to use Teams for work. If my colleagues want to post gifs, okay, just let me turn them off.

    Slack had a command, /collapse , that allowed me to opt out.

    This is the ONE thing that will keep me from using teams.

  3. Provide a way for an individual to minimize animated GIF display for their local teams client.

    Animated gifs can be very distracting visual noise and obscure the more important content in a team conversation. Allow an individual to opt out of viewing animated GIFS and automatically minimize them.

  4. A Brown Hand (instead of just the yellow)

    Hello, it's 2017. Teams needs to start supporting multiple skin colors in emoji. Why is the default for thumbs-up, shaking hands, and all other "realistic" emoji still white?

    These little things matter, especially now that Teams is available in Office 365 Education tenants. Our young students deserve to see emoji that represent them. Slack is way ahead of Teams on inclusive design: https://medium.com/@uxdiogenes/just-a-brown-hand-313db35230c5
