      • 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…

        • Bidirectional support for messages containing both LRT and RTL text

          I guess this is not a new idea per-se (as can be seen in the linked-at-the-bottom q&a with Microsoft), but previous ideas here are more case specific, so I could not add my vote to them.

          Since the general case of bidirectional messages is already well supported in MS and elsewhere, there is no reason for Skype to be different.

          Furthermore, while important for the general public, it is much more sorely needed for business applications, where technical terms are almost exclusively in English.

          Best regards

              • Open Office, we go crazy people talking very loud when using Skype/SfB and Headset. A blinking red button when loudness is over average.

                Open Office, we go crazy people talking very loud when using Skype/SfB and Headset. Because they don't hear themselves.
                A blinking red button in Skype/Skype for Business would be nice when the Headset Microphone is detecting that the voice loudness is above average.
                This would save the life of people working in a open space office.

                    • Call wrap up time

                      For response groups, a definable wrap up time after a call has ended to complete tasks associated with call centers (Ticket creation etc.)

                      Ideally would work like this:

                      Agent finishes with a call and has X amount of time before a call will be routed to them.

                          • As like google hangout, skype does not give list of existing users (linked to current domain) to chat or call. we need to remember the name

                            Google hangout gives button to see contact list, from where can choose the contact to chat / call. in SFB we do not have that facility.

                                  PSTN calling plan for UK is outrageous.

                                  At the moment to take advantage of this service you need to be on Enterprise E3 which alone it self is a huge cost £17.60 p/m (annually) license and then you need an additional Add-on of Domestic: £15.10; International: £24.10 respectively. So, to use this service p/u p/m you are looking £32.7 p/m p/u (annually) thats excluding vat.

                                  The service is however a little better in US it supports E1, E3 AND 35.
                                  So, why a different setup in UK?

                                    • 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.

                                      • Display the current time in the Skype header

                                        Simple: please display the current time in the header of the Skype window. It would be particularly useful in Skype meetings.

                                        • Add exteranl contact in skype for business online

                                          like exchange online, I would like the feature add the external contact in Skype organization level and that should be visible to every one in the organization instead of searching with full mail address we can search contact name that will be easy option to all users. When I checked with MS they said this option is not available. why don't you add this feature in upcoming release?

                                          • 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?
