Thank you for your continued feedback! We are happy to share that we have rolled out 800+ emojis to our Desktop and Web platforms, with Mobile rolling out in the coming months. This update includes 6 skin tone options, different genders for applicable emojis, and emojis featuring people with disabilities. Please note that you can also add native OS emojis using “Win + .” shortcut in Windows and “Cmd + Ctrl + Space” in MacOS.
Today, you can add a custom meme with your own caption in the Sticker/Memes feature. To learn more, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/send-an-emoji-gif-or-sticker-in-teams-174248c9-e64d-4de1-9f41-3199cc0751ad.
Ability to add custom emoji similar to how Slack allows.
Gonzalo Dániel commented
For me this has to be the most important improvement.
NEEEEEED, can't wait!
ETA on this feature?
Austin Brown commented
So for custom content, we need to be able to save it. Having to upload the file every time (such as for custom meme pictures) is not fun.
Custom emoji + support for the standard emoji sets supported by Slack, Android, iOS...
We create custom GIFs that are screen recordings to convey quick "how to's" in our office. This is a must.
Yes please, custom emoji's are crucial
Matt Sneller commented
Any update on an ETA for this?
Dustin Larsen commented
Yes! We're migrating from Slack, where most of the emoji we use are custom.
Jonathon Wyza commented
Yes, custom Gif/Gifv Emojis please. A picture is worth a thousand words, an emoji is worth at least 5.
Ludovit Gondkovsky commented
YES Please add reactions to comments. BUT most importantly CUSTOM emojis that have motion. I will never be able to transfer our office of 50ppl to Teams unless the playfulness of Slack is in Teams as well.
Also a great way to implement something new would be to allow screenshot annotation. We communicate by screenshots A LOT so pasting image from clipboard into text works well but perhaps if you added a button over that image that says ANNOTATE and the image would expand and you could add emojis, text and handwrite as well and then send after youre done
Pavol Donko commented
This should be added with emoji reactions. We use our nation specific jokes or field specific emojis (e.g. github) as reactions for posts at Slack.
Trick Jarrett commented
While silly sounding, it is also useful for us as we have custom tags for quickly conveying information.
Eric Bauer commented
There's an option to add custom memes, but not custom giphys. I want me some custom giphys
This is a MUST HAVE! I need to be able to put silly reactions on things!
This is supah important!
+1 for custom emoji's. I don't think I have used a stock emoji in Slack in a long, long time. Make custom emoji's great again.
Our team uses several custom emojis in Slack. They want them in Teams before we switch.
Kurt Pinniger commented
Getting fight back from other team members about not having our custom emojis or reactions as they are called in Slack
Maros Holly commented
Please, we need this.
