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.
I agree with all previous comments and would like to add: why can we have like 5 different Christmas-y emojis, but not a single menorah? Where's the representation for non-Christian users?
Until I can send a **** emoji to my co-workers this is unusable
Agreed! Unicode inclusivity exists for a reason. Only providing users a limited set implies that MICROSOFT is qualified to decide who should have access to representative emoji. (You ain't).

You can get full emoji list using Control+Command+Space (Mac).
Appreciate if inclusion of Full Unicode Emoji 4.0 menu can be integrated in Microsoft Teams as soon as possible, including with focus on racial inclusiveness.
While custom emoji would be great, this seems like it should be a given. I don't understand how "hungover" and "emo" part of the current, limited emoji set from the main menu.
For anyone else frustrated, I have found that the unicode emoji set IS accessible, but only through knowing its "name". The full set can be used by typing :emoji-name: directly into the text box. such as :woman_shrugging: or :cheese:. These emojis do not appear in the emoji search. At least - this is the case in my organization's MS Teams deployment.

Why even try and come up with your own? Just implement the standard set that everyone understands and uses all the time!
The MS Teams emojis are creepy. The sooner y'all do the normal emojis the sooner I'll be able to sleep at night. Or not freak out any time a coworker sends me a MS Teams emoji. ::shudder::
full emoji and support for external users. NOW
Microsoft is limiting my personal rights to express myself...
Based on their own thought of what is ok/nok to use in communication internal and external an comapany.
For everyone wanting the support for it now, on Windows 10 you can press the keys Windows + "." to see the normal emoji list
Dan Stark commented
Waaaaay past time for this.
Your current emojis are horrible and some are NSFW...
Give us the full emoji set!

Top of my list of issues with moving to Teams from Slack is how emojionally stunted I now feel in my chats.
With the entire corporate world working from home for Covid-19, we now have a greater-than-ever need to express all angles of our humanness digitally. Emojis and GIFs are actually a core part of that self-expression now missing without in-person work interactions.
Yes! This. Seriously, just add this. It is beyond me that the only option for emojis in Teams is an arbitrary set of oversized, weirdly animated leftovers from Skype for Business.
I could really use an animation of a monkey making a snow angel right now - said no one ever.
We have a standard for emojis that people are used to. Use it!
Just do it, please.
How can this be still under review after more then one year?
Full unicode emoji support is a human right.
Andre Soares commented
Please, the emoji set is very limited.
Custom emojis would also be welcome
I would love for the people and anatomy emoji's to come in different shades to reflect that people, nor their body parts, all have the same skin tone.

I want a simple checkmark emoji to indicate the specific task has been addressed. I use the thumb one to indicate approval, same idea.
