Microsoft Teams is one of the most popular applications used by employees and other individuals to communicate with their colleagues since most work tasks are now done remotely. The new noise cancellation feature is a great innovation since it can help users that are living in a noisy house. 

On the other hand, Microsoft Teams has more than 800 new emojis now, which is a huge advancement since the popular application only has around 85 emojis previously.

According to Express UK's latest report, Microsoft Teams now has an emoji category selector, a shortcode picker, which can help users access an emoji quicker, as well as new skip tone options.
