Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.
We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.
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.Piotr commented
Thanks for adding it, makes interactions more humane! Works also smoothly after today upgrade on Win10 and Mac.
I am looking forward to see it on Android client as well.At the moment android client activity feed doesn't say anything about reactions other than thumb up.
My team was also wondering why there's no thumb down button. It helps when collecting yes/no feedback on ideas, thoughts etc.
My vote goes to
2. A large selection of all emojis available, for example like as many as Facebook provides.
This item remains on the backlog.
We are working on a design with more density in mind. Until this design is solidified we are putting this item back to Under Review.
Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
