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.
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.
Andrew Taylor commented
I want a simple checkmark emoji to indicate the specific task has been addressed. I use the thumb one to indicate approval, same idea.
Jason Rabinowitz commented
If anyone actually still works on the Teams product, please add Unicode Emoji support. Your animated emojis are weird and some of them (Thinking) are just outright wrong.
Carol Mitchell commented
Would really help, We use emoji's to give a quick response of our Team mood (Lean and Agile), would like to see an SOS flag!!!
+1 for unicode symbols
John Hawkins commented
Our team will soon be transitioning from Google Hangouts Chat (bleh) to MS Teams (hooray!), and I was rather floored to discover there isn't full support for Unicode Emoji's. This is 2020 folks! lol
Flabbergastery aside, happy to add my vote to the tally! Looking forward to this soon.
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.
