    1. Allow reaction to your own message

      With this feature, it'll help users to laugh at their own jokes, the implication of this would help users be happier and having more control in the reaction of whatever they say and not based on the external factors as it'll help boost their confidence because the reactions would now be within their control, for example, this feature is available at Facebook where you can react on your own post.

    6. Make the thumbs up black for the black community on skype

      Well. I want to give a thumbs up but... I'm black. Thusly, upon looking for such emoticon I found myself to be inhibited by the overwhelming amount of white supremacy on the application known to many as "Skype for Business". How am I to communicate my approval as a black man, to my fellow people? Shall i just pretend I am some white man?

    7. Overwhelming SPAM Calls on Skype for Business

      We are receiving 4-5 unsolicited spam calls per day. They leave empty voicemails and occasionally there is a robot/recorded telemarketing prompt on the other end.

      This issue is happening to 10+ users in our organization.

    10. Change the emoji's up. There are only 2 emoji's related to female's and only white hand signals. skype is coming off racist/sexist.

      Change the color of the thumb's up/down, shaking, and flexing emoji's to yellow if you don't want to add another skin color other than white. Add more female related emoji's. It's very uncomfortable to think that Skype is making a statement that they do not want to add additional skin types to their list of emojis and don't want woman to be a part of those options either. I'm a white male, and I do feel very uncomfortable having to use your services as it's required for my job. This has also been brought to Skype's attention for years and…

    11. Provide Swagger/OpenAPI specification for UCWA

      UCWA is extremely powerful, but tends to have a steep initial learning curve and startup cost. Provising swagger/openAPI documentation would significantly reduce the startup costs of a UCWA project, allowing developers to use codegen tooling again UCWA.

    14. Skype Bot API for Messaging

      It would be very handy to have access to the above from Skype for Business. We are keen to look at developing a chat bot living within a SfB account to augment our internal IT service desk for common queries. This would be a given if the Skype consumer and Skype for Business clients were merged.

    15. Middle Finger Emoji needs added for "reacting" to comments

      When having a conversation with my Baby Christyn, she will often say things that are sly and try to toss shade on a brotha. My instant reaction is to give her the middle finger even though Im laughing! So Skype needs to add the middle finger emoji to the reaction options!

    16. Option to Enable a Transparent UI

      You should add the option to enable a transparent UI- like Google Hangouts. It's just a little icon that you can move anywhere on your desktop with a click and drag. It always stays on top of other open windows and expands with the conversations when you click on it, then collapses back to the just the icon when you click elsewhere.

    17. DSP Offloading

      Please add an option to turn off DSP offloading. Tools like EqualizerAPO, Clownfish or Soundpad don't work with Skype, because Skype bypasses all sound driver dsp effects, at least for the majority of sound drivers.

    19. better emoticons!!

      There are better emoticons being used in old antiquated email systems. Most of which are real people.....scenes from movies, I mean really interesting ones. Yours looks like the 90's!!! Emoticons are really important for daily stress relief. People in my office complain regularly now that we have Outlook, about the terrible emoticons.
