    1. 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…

    2. the ability to erase emoji as a reaction on a message

      I wish I had the option to delete emoji as a reaction on a message. You can edit the message but you can't edit the reaction to the message.
      if I made a mistake or regrat the emoji I added I can't change it. it's annoying sometimes.

    5. Skype for Business have issue to send contact request to Skype user

      Recently we migrate 100 users from Skype to Skype for Business.

      We found a critical issue that Skype for Business user have issue to send contact request to Skype user.

      Skype 8 client user will never receive the notification from Skype for Business. Skype user can only check the contact request by Skype (web) login.

      Skype for Business do not allow to send message to Skype user unless they accepted the contact request.

      It becomes worse when the contact request never appear to Skype 8 user client.

      The migrated user (from Skype to Skype for Business) is not able to…

    9. Group to Group/Single Person Chat

      Make it possible for a Skype Group to act as a sender of message.
      This way, a privileged user of a group (say group XYZ) will have an option to post a message, to another group or another person, using his User Identity and as well as group XYZ.

      There are certain scenarios, where let's say a decision needs to be come forward from whole team, to the client. So, instead of team member Alice saying 'Whole team agreed to decision XYZ' to the Client Bob, a Skype Group named 'ABC Company' can be utilized to send message.

      It is…

    12. Enable IM sound alerts for favorites but mute every one else

      I'd like to be able to mute IM alerts, but still get alert sounds for contacts in my Favorites group.
      Or maybe even be able to set custom sounds per contact list group

    14. Allow Windows 10 focus assist to disable taskbar amber alert

      As this is one of the great principles of focus assist. Getting distracted by constant amber alerts kind of defeats the point.

    15. Conversation History just like the Free Skype (Where you can search all conversation on a users window)

      We are having trouble on tracing for the history via Outlook its a hustle. Can we suggest that we can do the same as the free Skype version where you can search on a users window ALL conversation history.

    16. Feature to control video cropping on Skype Web SDK

      I want to control outgoing video size in our Skype Web SDK based application. There is "Crop and center my video in meetings" option in Skype meetings app and desktop client, so I want Skype Web SDK to have the same function as this option.

    18. 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?

    19. Don't see notification number popping up on the skype icon for the muted people/group.

      I do not see notification number popping up on the skype icon for the muted people/group. This way messages go unnoticed for hours. In older skype, we used to get the notification number on the icon itself so that we know we have a message waiting to get responded to even for someone who is muted.

    20. Handle SIP CANCEL messages properly to prevent spurious missed calls

      When using single number reach and an incoming call is picked up on a desk phone, the mobile client shows a missed call. The call manager is correctly sending a SIP CANCEL with cause=200 (call completed elsewhere) but Skype for Business ignores this. Please correctly interpret these SIP messages and avoid generating spurious missed calls on the client.
