Remove the smiley face from the Skype for Business
The smiley face in the "Business" software is not appropriate, at minimun. So can you remove this? Thanks.
I have tried the script suggested by @George below - it works fantastically! You'll need Python to run it though.
Are you out of your mind you stinky ****?

This smiley face crap is as bad as the "Bob" thing back in the 90's. What the heck is wrong with Microsoft? Skype was already crap and you've managed to make it absolutely horrible.

My associate father died and his new to Skype and when he told me the bad news I responded and he asked me if I was really that insensitive because of the smiley face and I had to explain to him at lengths that all messages are like that with Skype. He said lets stick to Whatsapp!
But I cant edit messages in Whatsapp so please fix this stupid smiley Icon and get rid of it! It's so inappropriate!
Some people asked for it in the thread - here's a script to remove Skype reaction smileys (feedback smileys):
Please remove smile icon after every message - this is nor appropriate
Please, please remove the smiley wave
I find this icon extremely distracting and inappropriate. This was one of the (many) reasons I stuck with the old version of Skype - that was until with the latest Windows update I was not able to use it any more.
You are trying too much to compete with other platforms and apps which are more casual-chat oriented, and in doing so you are making your product worse. Keep it professional, please.

Please remove the face if we want a dam face we all dont speak cartoon

I want to see the idiot who put a smile at the end of every message.
something like this:
"I am sorry, this will cost you extra 20000 :)"
"Oh, the bank in Russia was raided by State Security Guard, and we can not get that $1000000 out of there :)"
"Meeting tomorrow on boss's funerals. After that discuss the company future :)"
And simply speaking it is insulting. Like I can not put there a smile myself, whenever I want.
Anyway, it is the best way to force people stop using Skype.

This doesn't appear to be a thing? I don't see it.
The face is tiresome, unprofessional, yet more msft hubris and ignorance.
Skype developers are so stupid :) *smiley*
Sorry to have to tell you, but Uncle John has died :)

Пытаюсь созвать учётную запись, нажимаю на получить новый адрес элек.почты, в вожу адрес, нажимаю далее, ввожу по роль,нажимаю далее, после выходит окно где нужно ввести буквы или цифры ,которые вижу на картинке, я их ввожу ,но нет ни какой копки "далее или же ОК". Из-за этого я дальше не могу создавать учётную запись. Помогите,пожалуйста, как это исправить?
Just updated to this mess. I concur with everyone else here, seeing a smiley face on every single line of chats is just plain insane. If I or my contact want to add a smiley face on our chats..let us decide. This idea of adding a smiley face had to come from upper management, otherwise how can this still be on new upgrade installs

I cannot believe that this stupid feature still does not seem to have been removed. It really is beyond belief that someone thought it was a good idea.
I have searched my HD a couple of times looking for app.asar and *.asar but I can't seem to find this. Has it been changed or renamed - I am running 12.1813.286.0 on Win10.
