Emojis are stupid. Please remove emojis.
Emojis are dumb and they assume I mean to insert a yellow face when I mean for the reader to see :-)
PLEASE REMOVE THE EMOJI 'FEATURE' or allow users to disable it.
Keep the button. STOP TURNING TEXT INTO EMOJIS.
To bypass this I have to type ::-) then add a space after it then go back and delete the second :. If I delete the first one it turns into a yellow face. If I delete the space after it, it will turn into a yellow face. If I add a space between the :-) and the space after it turns into a yellow face. If I add text after the space then delete it it also turns into a yellow face even if I leave the space there.
Ok it actually does turn :-) into a yellow face.
That is annoying.
I'm fine with the button and would use it if I wanted a yellow face.
Are you saying it turns :-) into an Emoji when you type it?

Our company wants to enforce a simple strict org-wide policy: absolutely NO emojis allowed, period. Why cannot Microsoft understand that ?
Adding an option in the client to view or hide emojis would allow individual users to decide for themselves whether they think emojis are stupid or not!

We've had complaints that some of the animated emojis are offensive in some cultures.
Craig Bennett commented
emoji's can be used by those who want to use them, but any tool that forcefully convert text to emoji's and quotes to smart quotes is useless to anybody doing technical work

Emojis help to transport emotions that would be cumbersome to write if meaningful at all. Since MS Teams is used by many distributed teams that do not see each other for days and weeks emojis support nonverbal communication in these situations. To ask for the removal of this feature is to ask for teams to put aside with nonverbal communication.

Nearly the first comments of my team were around the fact that the emojis, especially the animated emojis, are annoying and detract from the content.
Please just make it possible to
-deactivate all emojis
- or at least deactivate animations
either per user or per channel or even chat
The blinking emojis are very annoying as well. Is Teams trying to appeal to the new facebook generation?
User should be able to disable- leave it to us to discern whether we'll use it or not.
Emoji is here to stay
Is it because it's a yellow face? You seem pretty racist...
