  5. auto-capitalization

    Strongly suggest that Skype can include the auto-capitalization feature. I have to press Shift every time I started a new sentence. This is annoying. Every first word of the sentence should be auto capitalized.

  6. extension to share code - code sharing

    Skype should make an extension for code sharing or something like slack does, for example.
    Sharing code through skype is a nightmare!

  9. Ability to change size of emojis

    Emojis are too small and hard to see if you put more than one in a line. I want the ability to make them bigger or alter their size. The option similar to this already been implemented on fb messenger would like to see a better version or option in skype

  13. Allow full reactions instead of limited emojis

    Please allow the full range of emojis in reaction to a posted picture or text (currently there is only a handful available and one can only react using the quote function. This does not work in a large group).

  14. Mention by any part of name

    Some people set up their names in format like "<Surname> <Name>".
    In this case, such people are being mentioned by their surnames (like @Ivanov).
    In some cultures, e.g. in Russian, it can be recognized as a little bit rude (especially if this person is a manager or older than one who mentions him/her).
    It would be great to have an ability for mentioning people by any part of their names or by all together.
    E.g. let's have someone with name Ivanov Maxim.
    I'd like to mention him not as @Ivanov but @Maxim or, for not to be confused with any…
