    this almost caused an HR issue for us. Apparently Microsoft's "custom" emojis (I read they're ported from Skype?) use actual emoji characters overlayed with Microsoft encoding, except they didn't fully implement it in Teams (what else is new?).

    From what I've tested against, typing an actual emoji into the new message area will come across fine, however if you use the smiley face between the paper-clip & GIF icon, and select one of Microsoft's own little animations, it will put that animation into the text box, and when you hit [Send], it will appear in the other users chat window as that same microsoft animation. HOWEVER, the last message line on the left side of Teams, as well as the Windows notification that pops up uses the original emoji that the microsoft animation is encoded against.

    See this screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/dNFYDQ9
    The microsoft animation used is a facepalming yellow face, however the text shows the original emjoi of "person facepalming" from the microsoft emoji set. (whether it's just U+1F926, or the full "female faceplaming" of U+1F926/U+200D/U+2640/U+FE0F is unknown, see below).

    This caused an issue where one user was sending what they thought was the gender neutral microsoft faceplam animation, but what the other user first saw was the notification, which displayed as the female facepalm, which IT had to get involved in and explain it _wasn't_ a gender issue, but the result of Teams incorrectly displaying layered encoded characters.

    Further nonsense - If you select the "******* head on wall" microsoft animation, then you get the "man faceplaming" emoji in text, which is interesting because that means _someone_ at microsoft chose to overlay the animation on the combination emoji of "man faceplaming" (U+1F926/U+200D/U+2642/U+FE0F), but for just the facepalming animation, decided to use the singular "person facepalming" (why get gender specific for one Microsoft animation vs another?) or went further and specifically chose the "woman faceplaming" emoji (who decides what gender gets to bang their head against the wall?)

    For additional hilariousness, and possibly the most gregarious, the ms-animation for "Bandit" is actually overlayed on the "detective" emoji. Who comes up with these??!!?

    and apparently your message platform uservoice is incorrectly parsing these messages as well. People should be able to interpret the incorrect" turning into "

    partially done  ·  Warren responded

    The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.

    I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

    The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

    There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.

    Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

    Thank you for all the feedback and support!
    -Warren

    The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today. The feature team is continuing to work on support for multiple accounts on desktop. We’ll keep you posted as we have more details.
