If you’re using Microsoft Teams today, you may have noticed that it’s now possible to use six different emojis to react to messages from your teammates. Previously, you could only use a like/thumbs up to react to messages, but now you can use more emojis to express surprise, love, sadness, or angst. These new reactions are now available on desktop and mobile, and they should make the team collaboration a little more fun to use.


As you may know, Microsoft’s Skype app has a similar feature that lets you different emojis to react to messages, and other messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger or Apple’s iMessage also support Message reactions. It’s also worth noting that Microsoft Teams actually uses the Skype emojis across all platforms, which are animated and still look pretty good after all these years.
