    1. Add support for 64-bit devices in the Skype for Business App SDK for Android

      Starting August 1, 2019, apps published on Google Play will need to support 64-bit architectures, see https://developer.android.com/distribute/best-practices/develop/64-bit.

      Lacking the support, apps built upon the Skype for Business App SDK for Android vill only support devices that do not run Android 9 Pie or later.

    2. Chat session, have the ability to turn off flashing icon when chat is updated from participant.

      Essentially, chats in the background, the icon flashes, beeps when your not actively in the chat instance. I would like the ability to disable the Flashing icon on the Task bar, or least disable the beeping noise per chat instance when the a chat is updated by one of the participates.

    3. Skype getting blocked and suspended for no reason

      Hi there, it has happened to me 4 times this month, everytime I come back from the weekend or a holiday and I try to log into skype my skype is either blocked or suspended, there is a bug in the system that determines the reasons for suspension and blocking an account, I haven't done anything in the past few days and my account was suspended for no reason, this happens only in skype accounts recently opened and not in the old skype accounts of 4 years ago. please fix this very annoying bug

    4. Status icons

      I have used another conference system that allowed some status icons in the participants screen. It had visual icons for statuses such as 'shortly away' or 'can't hear' as well as for votes like 'yes' and 'no' etc. That way it was really good to obtain an overview of the participants and their status. I would love to have such functionality in Skype (for B) as well. Now I do not see anything of this nature.

    5. Add different style fonts!

      The font is so boring. It would be cool if there was an option to have the same fonts as Microsoft word

    6. Make broadcast.skype.com API publicly available

      Currently there is no public API available for creating/updating/deleting meetings with the broadcast.skype.com website.

      However, there seems to be an API for it already, but it is not public.

      Can you please make it public so everyone can use it, to create/update/delete meetings via external applications?

    7. Autofill Contacts from within the Orgazniation

      You have Skype for Business, Why can't everyone in the office that has it be automatically added to your contacts. Why do I have to add them one by one, or by group?

      I install SfB...and presto-everyone else in the company is already in my contacts list! May get messy with multiple locations...or places with 1000+ but, that is what groups/favorites are for.

    8. Add user's local time and time zone to user info window

      What would it take to show what time it is for the person you are chatting to. Example: someone in Austin, TX talking to someone in India. You could put their local clock/time zone up in the user info box that is at the top of the chat window.

      Thanks

    10. Change the colors in conversations. The two current blue colors are too similar and sometimes hard to distinguish between.

      Change the colors in conversations to blue and red. They cant be two different tones of blue which can very confusing.

    13. let us load our own emoticons

      Let us load and use emoticons we like.
      We were forced to change programs for instant messaging and have yet another program open and running all day..
      At least let us personalize it like Lotus notes and Same Time did

    16. Managing IM Chats (specially auto scrolling)

      I find that when having an IM chat, were it goes on for a while (more than a page) then thje "autocrolling" does not work and it has to be done manually to enable one to continue the conversation.

    17. Ability to react to an emoticon

      I tried to react to my buddies emoticon where it gives you the finger, but was unable to. It would be useful to be able to give this a thumbs up or something.

    18. Pin the poll in chat

      Hello,
      The Poll feature is great but it would greater if it would be possible to pin it or quote it instead of the users to scroll and find it in the chat history.

    19. Skype for business migration speed

      migration speed from on-premise to SFB online is too slow, it would take too long for large amount of users. Need to speed it up
