after upgrading to Mattermost 5.20.1 it seems that the behavior when typing : has changed.
Before it would open the Emoji picker as soon as you’ve typed in :
After the update I need to type in : and at least 2 letters to see the filtered list of Emojis.
Is there a way to bring back the old behavior?

I can confirm that the behavior on 5.20.1 is similar to your explanation:
Since there is no clear indication on this new behavior in the changelog, can I please check which version were you originally on prior to the upgrade? I will then be able to cross check this with the dev / engineering team on the change and why it was introduced.
