  2. Lack of Color Emoji's

    HI - The thumbs up emoji is only white. It's a little awkward using that as it doesn't correspond with my actual skin tone. Why is the default hand WHITE?

  6. Lista de Transmissão

    Funcionalidade para enviar muitas mensagens ao mesmo tempo... um tipo de lista de transmissão igual outros App usam atualmente... seria muito útil em contas comerciais com muita dinâmica de conversa, negociação e prospecção de negócios.

  12. conversation chat loading last to newest

    I run Skype on multiple platforms. It is super annoying that when I am chatting on one platform all day and then open the same chat on a different platform later that day, the chat starts at the last spot I was on for that specific platform. basically I have to wait as line by line all the chat for the day is loaded in before I reach the current point of the chat.

    No other chat program does this to my knowledge. You load in to the current point in the chat and if you want to scroll back…

  13. spell check skype for mac

    I want to get rid off this spell check regime on skype for mac. my system language is English but very often I write in another language and every f***ing word is underlined with red dots which makes it almost impossible to write a message.

  14. bi direct translation

    It is simply impractical that Skype translation is done only in a chosen language. If the communication partner writes back in the translated language, it is not translated into the source language. This is not suitable for communication.

    Best regards,
    Walter

  15. Sending SMS to be covered under call subscription

    I am wondering why I should pay for SMS to USA while I can make calls free to USA as per the subscription. Can you please look into this? To me, it is not logical to charge for sending SMS but no charge for calling the same number.

  19. More writting languages

    I'm mainly working in French with my colleagues but in English with providers. So it would be interesting to add written corrections for more than 1 language

  20. Option to Disable Auto-Emojis

    As a person who hates emojis and prefers the simple emoticon appearing as text , it is frustrating that there's no option to disable my emoticons from appearing as emojis when I hit send.
    I think this feature would be easy to implement and please a lot of people who also feel the same way I do.
