How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Please remove your skype smiles

Please remove your skype smiles - they are really awfull. Just make them look like original emoji (like in slack) or at least like the ones in touch keyboard in Windows 10. Please, it really hurts my eyes. Do a survey on that or something - I'm sure nobody likes skype set of smiles.

    Agree, the old smileys and emoticons are outdated and not cross-platform. They should stick to the Unicode Emoji standard.

    I would also disagree, Skype emojis are actually good and more focused. But... standard emojis have become the norm.

    For real, though, there are already a bunch of other emojis in Teams. I can't upload a screenshot in a comment, but typing ":a" will make a list of non-Skype emojis that start with 'a' to choose from. (*Thankfully*, though, something like ":d" will automatically be converted into a Skype emoji.)

    At the very least, an option to turn Skype emojis off would be fantastic and would be helpful to those who dislike them (myself included, sorry MS) but would allow those who like them to keep them.

    The standard emojis from iOS and Slack should be used everywhere, not all these 'knock-off' replications that just disappoint.
