    Teamspeak + Unicode Emojis = <3

    Emojis are becoming more important than ever :eek:. We see big companies introducing more and more functions that are solely made for the work with emojis :cool: . Unicode is the Standard for this. We use Emojis everywhere, but not in TeamSpeak. Let's change that :o !

    I'd recommend implementing this the way Slack does it. There, you have a context menu like in TeamSpeak, where you can sort the emojis based on different categories and search for them. Also, emojis can be embedded by using :emojiname: commands. For the graphics to use I'd recommend the most broadly spread Apple-Emojis (also used in Slack, WhatsApp and Co.) and turn off automatic text to emoji recognition (You're not even able to write times like 3:00 without the stupid engine turning it into emojis currently). When beginning to enter those emojis into the textfield, I would recommend a self-opening menu suggesting autocompletions. I really recommend checking out Slack and the way they handle emojis and I think it would be a cool and great step forward for TeamSpeak to implement it the same way as Slack does.

    Opinions? :)

    Well, that would require UCS-4 support first. Neither UTF-8 nor CESU-8 are supported for UCS-4. CESU-8 was once supported by the server and is still actively used by mobile apps for use with UCS-4, but caused some issues with the snapshot feature and crashed desktop clients, because they never supported UCS-4. CESU-8 support was then removed from the server in 3.0.11.4 which destroyed the snapshot feature completely on servers that have ever been used with a username that cannot be represented with UCS-2. I personally would have preferred adding CESU-8 to the desktop client instead.
    Full Unicode support would also allow abusing Math symbols for Text formatting. Formatting channel names is a long-requested feature and would be possible by that.

    That would be awesome

    I think this is a great idea for username and channel names. Messages are not used that much in TS.
    I can't wait for this amazing feature !

    Is thread is also about Unicode in general. I think full Unicode support is needed.

    Sorry,
    I've expressed myself wrong, I meant emojis for nickname and channels are not needed.
