Full Unicode Emoji 4.0 support
Please implement full support of: http://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html
This is still under review by the feature team.
Do you know what face I make when I realize that it's 2019 and Teams still doesn't support the full unicode emoji set? .... Well I can't express it to you on Teams because Teams doesn't have this emoji: https://emojipedia.org/expressionless-face/
I disagree that Slack is better, but I do agree that if animating them is holding this back, then ditch the animations and bring in the full standard set used in other Microsoft products. It's honestly getting a little borderline embarassing to not have support for the standard unicode emojis in 2019 when all my browsers and operating systems do out of the box.
I don't mind the animated ones, but priority should be parity with every other communication platform. *Then* work on a special set of animated ones and release the full set when they're ready.

What "Adam" said on Nov. 15, 2019, 100%.
Not a wide enough choice at present to inspire interaction and creativity.
Is Teams not supposed to be a more informal communication tool ?
Normal emoji's would be great. Just get rid of the horrible custom animated ones, they are just bad and creepy. Haven't you learned that standardization is good yet?
Every time I need to use an emoji, I have to go copy it from somewhere else. Custom gif emoji's would be better. Like slack. Like everything slack does, is better. Just be slack. People only use this because it's bundled with Office 365 so it doesn't cost anything more, but everything it does it does worse than many other solutions that people are torn away from.

Over a year and no new update? This should have been a part of Teams during day 1 launch.

Why would you NOT have this
Dontworryabout it commented
Why wouldn't you?
I agree with previous commentators on this.
It is seriously insane that you don't implement this feature. It is a glaring flaw in Teams.

This is frustrating. I can add emojis in every other modern chat app simply. The Emoji-one collection is useful, but overlaps with :s :o and others.
I have a folder of 2800+ png files that I bulk downloaded from the Unicode site with a Chrome extension so that I can converse like a normal person in Teams. Please prioritize!
Almost June 2019 and still no?
What are you still reviewing @warren?
that person should have been sacked for not knowing what "it's under D:/stuff" means
This is quite possible the most annoying and seemingly easy to fix issue with messaging in Teams. We live in a world of social media and expression through text which makes this a pretty glaring flaw in Teams. Having to go back and forth from a phone to Teams or sending the Emojis we need to a chat to Copy/Paste is absurd. Not having a full Emoji Keyboard in Teams is not an option.
Workaround: On Windows use the UnicodeInput Utility from this website https://www.fileformat.info/tool/unicodeinput/index.htm advantage: it works with other programs, too.
Surely this is easy to implement?

I know this sounds irrational, however, it is no less true: This is one of those things that will get more of our people off of Slack and on to Teams.

Please just remove the microsoft emojis and use the regular ones.
Seriously, still under review for 24 months? This is like the most basic feature for any messaging system. There are full length, released to theater, movies about emojis. Come on - this should be a quick win. Get rid of the awful animations and just support emojis like everyone else
I JUST WANT MY HUGGING PEARS BACK
