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.
This is insane. Office environment, including code snippets, and parentheses make a mess of things. This is how you squander market share and **** people off (besides incessantly pushing Teams and Edge, that is).
We use teams in an office environment, not in a playground for teenagers. Please stop with these ridiculous emoticons. The moment I type in a left parenthesis "(" teams thinks I'm typing in emoticons. Normal would be :emoticon: I use parentheses all the time in my formal writing and it is crazy that I have to jump through all kinds of hoops in order to type (new) in Teams chat without it converting to an emoticon.
"We’ll have a solution for you soon" you said 5 years ago. It doesn't feel soon to me. I guess there's no need to improve the product when one has near monopoly? Best to save those 2h work.
For God's sake, give us an option to turn off the emoticons!! If you are listening, give us an idea when, if you can't then why, if you can but not now then why and how many more feedbacks are you expecting to come up for you to take action. Don't mislead people by keeping a vote open from Dec 13, 2016, giving the last reply on Sep 9, 2018 and not taking it to any conclusion for YEARS!!

Would like the ability to turn off all emoticons popup on hover a cursor on a message card. Most of the time when you have to select and copy the part of the message, ended up sending a reaction emoji on that message.

Please let us flip off emoticons in teams messages. I appearance profoundly silly to customers when I write, say, an '8' followed by means of a final parenthesis and it converts to the sunglasses emoji. Appear to be Microsoft's priorities -- specifically for a enterprise app like groups -- must be aimed at software insects, not silly amusements.https://kodi.software/ https://nox.tips/
I see they've finally borked the decent emojis (RIP :wave: ) by rolling out the full swathe of hideously cringe skype emojis recently, but they've still not done anything about letting users choose to disable emojis altogether. How disappointing.
Hey, great news, everyone: this is finally fixed! To get it,you do have to uninstall and reinstall Teams--with one very important special step. To reinstall Teams, you have to download the app from Gitter.im, and you will finally have control of the emoji in your life. ;]
Have shame, Microsoft. Teams is for ten-year-old girls. :[
haha ipv6 address goes emoji
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.

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.
