allow any emoji as a reaction, not just thumbs up
Slack has this: get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/206870317-..
Adding any emoji as a reaction remains under review.
I am marking this as partially done to let you know a new reactions bar with Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Angry has begun rolling out to all users.
I wish an "eye" emoji as a reaction that it is read. Everything isn't always "thumbs up"
Not needed. I use a screen reader and emoji require me to re-read and translate the emoji to a "yes" or "no".
@Alex Can you also considering one emoji for Done expression. As the teams collaborate they don't need to type anything ... someone ask something .. We can directly use the Done expression that's the task completed as this is mostly used between Teams at work
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. Even worse, it is an insult to womanhood, women ****** organ 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 of our daily lives. Imagine feeling insulted intentionally or unintentionally during sessions on Teams and Skype every single day.
I have attached a video of the emoji of concern @ https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40654534-change-cultural-unethical-emoji
I know this is a contextual issue and your team may not fully understand how insulting this emoji is. Yet, I believe Microsoft does not wish to insult its customers or disrespect any culture. I hope you will consider doing the right thing now that this had come to your attention.
Finally, I hope you will not put this request to a vote, but act urgently.
I hope in the future Microsoft as a global organisation with users all over the world would be sensitive about the features of its products. I have raised this issue for months now, and I'm not getting any feedback. I expect more from a global organisation like Microsoft unless Microsoft Teams wants to tell me that the concerns of minorities using their system is not valuable.
6 emojis is not sufficient. Please open it up like Slack. Thanks!

Emojis do not represent diversity of employees.
Also Approve, Caution, STOP.
Curious, Skeptical, Disapprove, Insightful, Celebrate ... emoji that work for LinkedIn should already have been included in Teams.
I really want the "thinking" emoji and "rofl" please.
We need a thumbs down emoji please
Stephanie Hudson commented
Something that clearly represents "thank you" is required. Neither a thumbs up or a heart feels appropriate. Been using the thumbs up.
Same for "happy" without laughing. Again, been using the thumbs up.
I'm not sure why the full list of emojis in Skype for Business isn't available by clicking the ... at least. The "top six" used by the logged in user should be the default ones that show up on hover.
I've always loved the whatsgoingon emoji in Skype for Business.
I miss a 'thank you' emoji like you have on the mobile phones.
I need my kiwifruit emoji!!!!
How about a Thumbs down
Yh,pls add more emojis or at least the commonly used ones
Like the smile,disgusted,questioned,thumbs down,e.t.x

Please add a "Thumbs Down" option on Teams Live Event questions. We do many Town Halls using Live Events.
While the "thumbs up" option is there, it ends up inflating some questions by a vocal minority w/o the majority having the ability to weigh in on questions that have either been asked and answered before or just plain snarky.
This request also received the most votes in our last town hall.

Please allow any emoji as a reaction. As a person coming from Slack, the lack of support for any emoji as a reaction breaks our teams' workflows.
Team's emoji support is super weak compared to Slack.
WE need a simple Smile added to this list
