emoji keyboard shortcuts have stopped working
I used to be able to type a colon and a list of emoji would appear, thus giving me the opportunity to insert an emoji using only the keyboard and not a mouse. I find this really convenient.
For example, I would type
and that would insert the "thumbs-up" emoji.
This (i.e. insert an emoji using keyboard shorcuts) seems to have stopped working. I now have to resort to the mouse in order to insert a emoji, and I really don't want to.
I am using the Teams desktop app on macOS by the way.
Autocompletion no longer work for me either, and neither does :name: syntax.
I discovered in the picker that (name) syntax exists.
e.g. :man_shrugging: used to end up as 🤷♂️, but no longer. Now, typing (manshrug) does the job, but no autocompletion.
Teams version: 1.3.00.25560 (64-bit)
OS: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
Looks like Microsoft's old motto has struck again: If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

@Patrick, those emoji's are not the same as the ones you'd get with the colon option.

The Emoji shortcode picker is now initiated with ( but it just works in PopOut Chats (facepalm) and meetings on desktop
I've raised another issue for the fact that this has stopped working in May 2021: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/908686-bug-reports/suggestions/43521588-emoji-keyboard-shortcuts-have-stopped-working
if you're commenting here please go and comment over there instead :)
I raised this in June 2018 and I now see that all of a sudden in May 2021 lots of people are here commenting. And I'm another.
Typing :thumbsup: used to print the thumbsup emoji but its stopped working. I'm going to raise another ticket regarding this because its actually a different problem than the one I originally raised this ticket about.
(Y) used to work for thumbsup. Significantly better than windows + . or :thumbsup:
As do I.
Adding that I also have this issue! - using Teams 1.4.00.11161
Please make this broken feature work again.
Yes...bring back the intellisense like functionality please!
Big problem. Please make that work again!
please please, pretty please, fix this.
It is truly frustrating that this is no longer working.
Please fix your keyboard shorcuts! Your emoji menu is insufficient to communicate with the emotional depth I'm used to :cry:
Commenting because it looks like this feature stopped working again

Looks like we have to revive this submission as that shortcut seemed to have stopped working.

My friends emojis are so different and cute, but mine are only normal
I just realised that this is possible by typing
All emojis here: https://www.emojione.com/emoji/v4 are supported (apparently).
This makes me happy :) . Please ignore this submission
