In this article, I will lead you through the process of incorporating more emojis into your Microsoft Teams chat.

Step 1: Accessing the Emoji Library

To add more emojis to Microsoft Teams chat, you first need to access the Emoji Library. To do this, simply open a chat window in Microsoft Teams and click on the smiley face icon located at the bottom of the chat box. This will open up the Emoji Library.

Take your time to browse through the available options and find the emojis that resonate with you the most. Microsoft Teams provides a diverse range of emojis, including smileys, animals, food, and many more.

Step 3: Adding Custom Emojis

If the available emojis in the Emoji Library are not enough for your needs, you can also add custom emojis to Microsoft Teams chat. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Microsoft Teams app and click on your profile picture in the top right corner.
  2. Select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
  3. In the Settings menu, click on “Permissions”.
  4. Under Permissions, click on “Customize emojis”.
  5. Here, you can upload your own custom emojis by clicking on the “Upload” button and selecting the desired image file from your computer.
  6. Give your custom emoji a name and click “Save”.

Once you have added custom emojis, they will be available for you to use in Microsoft Teams chat.

Step 4: Using Emojis in Microsoft Teams Chat

Now that you have added more emojis to Microsoft Teams chat, it’s time to put them to use! To use an emoji in a chat message, simply click on the smiley face icon in the chat box and select the emoji you want to use. The selected emoji will be inserted into your message, allowing you to express yourself in a more visual and engaging way.


Adding more emojis to Microsoft Teams chat can enhance your communication and add a personal touch to your conversations. Whether you choose to use the pre-existing emojis from the Emoji Library or add your own custom emojis, having a diverse range of emojis at your fingertips can make your Microsoft Teams experience more enjoyable and expressive.
