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.
How has this been under review for 2 years?? Please add unicode emojis!
Jeah well Microsoft could of course use its time to make Teams actually usable (e.g. if you use multiple tenants it ***** completely up ... you can't switch tenants without getting kicked from running meetings, it logs you completely out because it suddenly wants to use logins that don't even exist, no idea where they come from, ...). But hey ... who needs a working product if it doesn't support full emoji set or other useless kiddy features ?

I want Car emoji...that way my sales rep can tell other team that they are driving...O common
I dont want them text and drive
I WANT UNICORN JESUS
Please make this available on MS Teams.... the ability to communicate in ways that are uniquely YOU is imperative now more than ever.
I just had to move from Slack to Microsoft Teams. The downgrade of not having full emoji support really hits hard. There is a massive value to allowing people to express themselves through a large variety of emojis and custom emojis. They offer a human aspect to our communication.
We had custom emoji's that contained our company brand elements. Mini-memes, and other emojis that were full of personality. Teams by comparison feels sterile, and cold.

It is simple to add unicode caharacter on OneNote (XXXX + "Alt+X") and on word (XXXX + "Alt+C"). Why don't ask them how they do ?
Good Luck !
Yes, please add this! It's ridiculous this idea is from 2017 and still not implemented. The available emojis are so random and not useful.

Microsoft is still stuck in Skype legacy-land, while the rest of the internet has moved on to better things... It's amazing that this is still "under review" in September 2020, when huge services like GitHub, Slack, Mattermost and Discord have implemented this ages ago.
MSFT :D Please bump this up your sprint. :)
angry that you still haven't figured this out.....

how is this still under review 2 years later?
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!
