    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 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.

          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.

          The face is tiresome, unprofessional, yet more msft hubris and ignorance.

          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.

          This is one of the poorest UI features I've seen in a long time. Not only is it plain old stupid, it makes every line look like it has a smiley face after it; annoying, obtrusive and inappropriate. Please please please remove this. How did it ever make it to production? Stuck with old versions as long as possible on a few boxes simply to not have to look at every message being misconstrued with a smiley.

          Aaargh smiley faces next to every message, you have to be kidding! Fire whoever's dumb idea this was....now.

          Me: 'Hey team the network is down' (smiley face)
          team: 'why are you smiling, *******'

          The hex edit solution worked for me on OS X. I'd like these stupid smilies off of my Android Skype as well. Microsoft ---- you have absolutely no design sense whatsoever. You are worse than Google.

          Please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! remove smile "react to this message" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          It's hugely inappropriate even for personal use. I have been talking to a friend about my cancer treatment and he tells me that all my messages have ended in smiley emoticons, which is not at all an appropriate emotion to cover the unpleasant treatments I've been having.
