Teams needs a down vote or thumbs down button.
No down vote or thumbs down button in messages/group chat.

Like others have mentioned, a thumbs-down reaction is a necessary complement to thumbs-up. A few times today, a team member posed a question that would benefit from affirmative "not me" answers to be sure the question was understood and answered, be it with a yes or no. Instead, there are a few thumbs up followed by a series of "No," "Nope," and "I don't" messages filling up the screen.

I have a colleague who constantly tells dad jokes. Need a thumbs down button. ASAP.

There is a thumbsup reaction which in general indicates a "positive" feedback. Something for a "negative" feedback is also needed.
An example everyday use:
At the end of our morning chat I ask my team "Does anyone want to add anything?". When they don't have anything to add, they want to react with a thumbsdown, meaning "No I don't have anything to add", but there is no thumbsdown reaction.
Instead they either reply with a "No" message which is a low information clutter message (something reactions are built to overcome) or they just keep silent which is confusing.

Please also add this to Live Events. Our attendees want to be able to down vote a question they don't agree with.

There should also be a way to vote against suggestions here in UserVoice.

Yes we 100% need a thumbs down emoji. This is just as beneficial as having a thumbs UP.
Why there already is not one does not make sense.
MICROSOFT, PLEASE ADD A THUMBS DOWN EMOJI!!!!! :)

Be nice to ask a series of questions and get a thumbs up or down on the message bubble for each one.
This a a no-brainer.
If you have thumbs up, you have thumbs down.
Want the ability to thumbs down using the reaction bar to a specific message.
100% agree! A thumbs down is also a good way for a quick "yes/no" polling system.
Our colleagues need to be able to upvote or downvote any individual chat item / idea / software feature idea / lunch location, etc, like in other advanced social/tech platforms. These should probably be added as an option to turn on via Settings, and should be implemented such that downvoters of a 'floated idea' need to give a reason for the downvote.
Why not react with all the available emoticons?
