    Please make this happen. We are counting on you, Microsoft Team! It is very hard to react to a comment made by a fellow team member. Chatting on platform like Teams help us to communicate better and being able to react appropriately helps the communication even better. Definitely looking forward to this feature!

    This is my top feature request. As a frequently remote employee at an organization that previously used Slack, I feel that reactions are invaluable. They provide a low-stakes way to participate in a conversation without the visual disruption of a new post, playing a roll similar to body language in a face to face conversation. A rich vocabulary of reactions is a critical ingredient for bringing meaningful human interactions and team culture to a platform like Teams.

    I'm glad to hear that you're making progress! You'll make a lot of users like me very happy when this becomes generally available. 🏆

    Yes, would like this too! So handy to have it in Slack currently, would be nice to have in Teams also.

    Can we please get an update on this feature? Our business uses reactions in Slack to increase our productivity and trim our response time.

    Can't wait for this to come out! I'm also wondering if you have a release date in mind!

    Hi Suphatra, Teams team, how is testing going? Any idea of a release date yet for this feature? My team would love to know!
