Microsoft Launches Expanded Reactions for Teams

MVP

 

Instead of being limited to five emojis to express reactions to Teams chat and channel messages, Microsoft is making over 800 emojis available as expanded reactions. Whether this will make any difference to the way anyone uses Teams is entirely personal. For me, I think I shall remain content by using the limited set available to date because it’s just too much hard work to choose from over 800 options.

Hi Tony,
it seems, that the new Emojis didn't work in channel messages. I can use them just in normal chats.

Why? I didn't find any info in the web so far.

Best regards

I just confirmed that the new emoji set is available in channel messages. Your client software might not be updated.

Hmm, ok. This is our latest:  Microsoft Teams Version 1.5.00.31168

But today, web client works. Yesterday, it didn't.

Maybe with the next version.
