  1. Gif window preview size is too small

    The preview of GIf's is much too small to be useful, with no way to resize.

    This is crucial to brilliant responses in animated form.

  2. Make the default stickers less sexist

    Most of the stickers/memes are male characters (e.g. wearing ties). Why is that? Women work in offices too! So do gender non-conforming individuals. The only place where women appear in the stickers is in the "Office Drama" section. It's 2018, Microsoft, I expect better than that!

  3. Emoji Continuity

    Emoji Continuity

    Why tf are there emojis listed that can be typed with : " emoji name " : but aren't in the emoji list and why AREN'T the emojis in the emoji list capable of being inserted using : "emoji name" :

    who thought of that great idea?

  4. An ability to change the color of the emojis

    I'm a brown person, and I'd like to be able to choose a brown hand for the thumbs up sign and some of the face emoji's. The globe is a colorful place

  6. Emoji's should not auto-complete before hitting the space bar

    When typing out an emoji, if you type : followed by a specific subset of characters (s, d, and o are a few examples) the emoji auto-completes to a animated face even if you wanted to type out another emoji (:soon: can not be type as the :s will become an emoji before you can finish with oon:). This should stop and the normal list of emojis should pop up with the face as an option to choose.

  7. I really can't stand emojis that move. I think it's really annoying.

    I really don't like how these emojis move. I use the ":D" and the "thumbs up" emoji constantly and I really find it annoying that it continues to move.

  9. Set default skin tone for emojis

    Would be great to be able to set the default for emojis that support different skin tones. Having to long-form type those out all the time is really aggravating/tiring/frustrating.

  12. gifs should autoplay

    gifs lose their impact if someone needs to actively hit the play button. the point of gifs is that they play automatically to be visible immediately. if it doesn't play there is no point in using it.

  13. The Teams Emojis are dated and cringeworthy

    The Teams Emojis are dated and cringeworthy, not to mention a distraction. They don't serve their purpose very well. Please can we have the standard universal set of Emojis instead? It’s a lot easier to convey emotion with them, rather than the limited vulgar set we have at the moment. Your current and future users would really thank you for it.

  14. Have ALL the emjoi's appear when using : :

    So here is a very basic emoji syntax, :joy: but for some reason when you do :j...: it only shows :joystick: Why are so many emoji's missing? It seems like half are missing when you try to do : : with an emoji name

  16. Coming from Slack

    Coming from Slack, I miss including a URL for a Gif or Image and have that image display within the chat.

    Also, it would be awesome to be able to include custom Emojis as well.

  17. Allow us to turn off the censor gifs

  19. How about a die (dice) roller?

    Not sure this should go under GIFs or bots, but how about adding a dice roller? You know, where you enter "D20" and get back a random number between 1-20 or "2D6" and get two numbers from 1-6 each.

  20. Add metal horns or rock emojis

    Skype for Business has an awesome (rock) emoji present, yet Teams does not. As a life long metalhead, I would like to able to express my metalness to my colleagues!

    I suggest adding either a 🤘 emoji or adding the SfB animated (rock) emoji.
