Please add more emojis. For example
Add the onion emoji.
Add the poop emoji.
Add a “curtsy” emoji to compliment the “bow”.
Bring the fistbump emoji over from Skype into Teams.
Add the Party Parrot emoji collection.
Add emojis that relay more positive messages (most seem negative).
Add flags emoji collection.
Add “canyoutalk” emoji from Skype.
The ability to turn off emojis is still being worked upon.
Also, there is work to create a compact mode which will also help reduce white space… which in turn will impact some of the complaints are far as wasted space from the emojis as well, that have been voiced in the comments.
Stay tuned for more details.
Thank you for your feedback. We’re happy to announce that an option to choose between Windows 10 Native Notifications and Teams Notifications is included in our Dec 2020 Public Preview pack, and will be available to users who opt into Public Preview.
You can learn more about the new Microsoft Teams Public Preview program here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreview, and Teams administrators can find documentation to manage which users will see the Public Preview option here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreviewAdmin
This feature is on the backlog. I will update you when we have more details to share.
Adding any emoji as a reaction remains under review.
I am marking this as partially done to let you know a new reactions bar with Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Angry has begun rolling out to all users.
