I would like to be able to disable Expressions. I turned off the beta solely because I can't disable the expressions. Let me know when you have the feature added and I'll re-join the beta. Thanks.
The setting for this feature is under Mail > Compose and reply > Quick suggestions.
Utterly annoying emoji suggestions behavior + preview of links (twice!) + all of the sudden weird recognition behavior of my most used contact. Makes me want to move away

I use this application for work. I never want to insert a gif or emoji. Please stop it from popping up every time I type something that it things should be an emoji or gif.

Joey Khoury's solution worked great for me, reposting for visibility:
Click on the gear at top-right
Select View All Outlook Settings
Select Compose and Reply
Scroll down to Quick Suggestions
Uncheck Use my browser location to find places near me.
I already had "use my browser location" unchecked so I also unchecked the boxes by "joyful animations", "offer suggestions based on keywords in my messages", and "suggested replies". And one of those three did the trick.!
I don't like how it highlights certain text and if I need to edit the word, it brings up a meme screen. Very distracting and time consuming on a work account.
Expressions are the worst idea ever. Fire the person that decided to add them and fire him twice if he had the idea to make it the default.

typed in the word 'thanks' - turns into an unwanted, stupid expression.
Calling it an expression is a misnomer - should be called a major annoyance.
Who thinks up this garbage must be trying to impress his/her boss! Does not impress a professional, adult user.
Suggestion: get rid of it.
There needs to be someway to turn off the text to emoticon suggestion. Its really disruptive when typing an email. It makes you think there is a grammar, spelling or format issue in your message. I admit I'm 50yo but in my opinion they are also unprofessional in a work email.

stop suggesting GIF ideas every time one writes good morning, or thanks, or thank you. It's really annoying
It should be the default, instead it should be an option that can select if one wants.

Don't make everything look like its straight from a kids cartoon
These expressions that play when people send emails with works like 'congratulations' or 'thanks' are very unprofessional.

The new compose message features are annoying and distracting, which make work inefficient. I cannot stand the fact that when I begin typing or highlight a phrase I've already typed to edit my working that the little font box pops up. Clicking it there rather than at the bottom of the message is saving no one any meaningful time and it prevents me from seeing part of my previous text that I need to assess what a better word choice would be. I also find the highlighting of words to add gifs/memes instead of the text is a needless distraction as well, especially for professional messages. I've reverted to the old Outlook because the new features make email more of a hassle than it already is.
When I type "thanks", I I have a link automatically inserted to a GIF, very annoying as I did not ask for it. So I switched back to the "old

The "expressions" function keeps popping up and interrupting me when I'm in the middle of writing an email, and use one of the trigger words, like "thanks"!
I want to turn it off, but I don't know how.
It has become quite a nuisance and wastes valuable time.
New expressions feature is extremely glitchy on IOS. Had to restart my page multiple times because I wrote "Thanks."

When typing and an "Please" was typed the screen re-drew and there was lots of window movement that made it difficult to continue so switch back to classic.

This "Expressions" window that keeps popping up every time you make a mistake is frustrating. It offers you expressions ideas when you just want to correct your typo...and it won't let you correct the error in a timely manner. I hate it.
Automatic emoji enable/disable option
Leave me alone. No stupid suggestions. I don't want or need them. I know how to write.
