Multi-language spell check is on the backlog.
This is already encompassed by the following suggestion, which incidentally has stalled due to an engineer leaving last year who appears not to have been replaced yet: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18472327-proofing-tools-spell-check-theasaurus-autocorre
Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.
I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.
Are applications still open for this engineer? If nobody else wants the job, I'll apply - I can spell, I have good grammar and I can even code! And the fact that I can't change the spell-check language in Teams from US English to any other sort of English (ie. "Rest of the world" English) is a real pain. Would love to have it fixed please :)
Feature request is still being worked upon.
Copy-pasting is especially temperamental when there are code blocks involved. Please fix this so that code blocks are preserved on copy-paste from one message into a new message. Thanks
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.
Just got this update today and two things popped into my head within about 10 seconds of seeing it:
(1) Hooray! The hover toolbar that used to invariably obscure a message's text now appears *above* the message, and (2) Dangit! Now it obscures the previous message! While I like the new emoji box, I'm bewildered that on a 27" 4K monitor it ever has to obscure *anything*. Can't you make it float off to the right side of the message if there's room for it? If not, sure, float over the message if you absolutely must. But please don't cover my messages if you can avoid it! It's been my #1 gripe with Teams for a while, and this is not much of an improvement.

After entering a series of incomplete one-liners to my colleagues, I found a brilliant work around. I type everything I need to in Word, print it out, then take a photo of the printout with my phone, then open the Teams app on my phone and send the picture! It works every time! [/sarcasm]
The *de-facto standard* for this is (and has been for decades, let me show you my age):
Single-line data entry (eg. mIRC): Enter = Send
Multi-line data entry: (eg. Outlook/Express back at least as far as 1995): Enter = new line, Ctrl+Enter = Send.
SIMPLE. Why change something that works?
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.
Type an emoji, only one, any one, then hit send.
A lone emoji character in a message pops up in your feed and the recipients' which is:
- 3x bigger than it needs to be
- 3x bigger than the typical small emoji in a message with additional text
- 10x more annoying than small emoji, which are annoying enough as it is
So I say your 50% size reduction "fix", while reducing eyesore, only went part of the way:
1) Please remove (or add an option to remove, if you really must) the the honking-massive single emojis
2) Emoji are not too offensive in an office setting if they are static (some might disagree). Please create a setting and make the default either to not animate or only animate once or twice (like GIFs). If people want their gaze to be perpetually distracted, they can turn this back on
3) As you've already planned, Yes - Please allow users to turn it off completely.
This feature is still on the backlog.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
