Add option to make emoticons smaller or be turned off
Would like the ability to turn off all emoticons. Every chat application I've ever used (Skype, Lync, Slack, Hipchat) allow this option. Or/and make the emoticons smaller.
It would also be nice to have the option to minimize an emoji or resize an emoji within the chat feed once a user has posted it. Currently ‘edit’ or ‘delete’ is available per message, possiblly if ‘minimize’ or ‘collapse’ option would make this possible? This would enable the viewer of the feed to create their own visual experience/not have to look at emoji if they don’t want to.
The ability to turn off emojis is still being worked upon.
Also, there is work to create a compact mode which will also help reduce white space… which in turn will impact some of the complaints are far as wasted space from the emojis as well, that have been voiced in the comments.
Stay tuned for more details.
What an unprofessional and confirmedly vacillating follow up to this issue.. I see no response years later which makes me wonder whether this issue was ever actually being worked on at all.
Any updates? It has been quite some time :/
Please complete the task requested,
thanks in advance
Please allow us to turn of automatic Emojis. I try to type (mm) and can't because it gets replaced.
What is the expected release dates for the feature to disable the emojis in MS Teams?
Please let us turn off emoticons in Teams messages. I look profoundly stupid to clients when I write, say, an '8' followed by a closing parenthesis and it converts to the sunglasses emoji. Seem like Microsoft's priorities -- especially for a business app like Teams -- should be aimed at program bugs, not stupid amusements.

Another case of Microsoft thinking it knows best.
Any update on this? it has been 2 years............. thanks!

When someone talks over you or completely ignore you it means they have not interest in what you have to say. I have looked for several week for way to turn off emoji's in my Teams software. I have also looked in the admin interface and can not find it.
I have recently learned that Slack will allow your users to turn the off or on as the require.
hey could you PLEASE fix this me and my classmates think the emojis are super creepy. you dont need this much time. also AUTO EMOJI DOESNT HAPPEN IN QUICK REPLY so you can do that as a setting for ALL of the messaging.
My grade 1 students love the emojis...when my lesson is over I check the chat and it makes me wonder if they were listening at all. As I still need chat for parents who have technological problems that message me to invite them into our meetings I can't turn chat off. Being able to turn of the emoji button would hopefully help my students become less distracted by Teams.
Thanks- A grade 1 teacher whose seen every emoji
Ctrl-Z doesn't work - it will immediately re-emojify -- what/where is the solution?
This is a *business tool* not a social networking platform for teens
Should we really expect this company, the same company that created Microsoft Bob, to allow us to get away from annoying yellow smiley faces? At this point, let's just be thankful that the font isn't permanently set to Comic Sans.
