Emoji Skin Color

When using Asana Desktop (I’m on MacOS Catalina 10.5.2 & Chrome Version 81.0.4044.129 (Official Build) (64-bit)), I’ll try to comment on a task and use the Man Shrugging emoji in the lighter-skin dark hair skin tone, yet it ALWAYS then posts as a white male with blonde hair, with a skin tone box just to the right of it.

I can post the same emoji via the Asana Mobile App (for iOS) no problem.

Steps to reproduce:

Go to any task, comment and try a non-white with blond hair emoji with some other skin tone, and try it via desktop vs. mobile and tell me if you can do it or not.


Welcome to the Forum @Peter_Kim and thank you for reaching out!

I just tested myself and I got the same behaviour as you. I’ve gone ahead and file a task for the this and I’ll keep you posted as soon as I get an update!

Thank you for flagging this Peter!
