  11. Updated Lesbian Flag Emoji

    The current lesbian flag emoji uses an old flag, which was made by a racist person. The lesbian community recently switched to a different flag with five stripes in the following order: dark orange, light orange, white, light pink, dark pink.
    A picture can be found here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Orange_and_Pink_Lesbian_flag.svg
    I'd like an orange lesbian flag emoji, it doesn't have to replace the current lesbian flag emoji though.

  13. Spellchecker, a pain in the...

    A few things for your consideration:
    Skype has betrayed its adult users and is now a dumbed-down chat app for teenage girls. To make my point clear, go to the skype home page and you'll see several pictures of 16-year old girls using Skype. Nothing else.
    In this comment I will stick to a messaging issue which would be easy to fix, assuming you want to fix it. The extremely irritating spellchecker cannot be turned off. I have tried everything, including general Windows settings, and looked for solutions online with no luck. Until recently, I could at least kill the…

    Microsoft is blatantly lying about the ability of US Skype numbers to receive SMS messages from US mobile phones - it just doesn't work. But they will refund the purchase of your skype number if you go to troubleshooting>Can I get a refund>chat with customer support

  16. Skype for windows: create and send a photo

    Hello, for the situations where I don't want to create a video message. Is it possible to get an option to make just a photo from a webcam and send it? (like it done for mobile versions)

    I will really appreciate it.
    As a bonus idea, there could be a screenshot option too. But the photo from the webcam is more interesting for me.

  17. Skype failing to actualize "Last seen"?

    Skype failing to actualize "Last seen"? Doesn't seem to update the time of last activity of a Contact properly. Skype used to do that until recently. Now, I may even be IN a chat conversation, going on at that very moment, and Skype still claims "Last seen 12h ago" (or whatever), even WHILE we're being active. I may have to switch to a different contact chat history, then come back to my current one, and only then might the last activity be updated correctly. That's on Mac desktop, as well as iPhone. Is that a new bug?

  18. Шаблоны сохраненных фраз

    Добавьте шаблоны сохраненных фраз с возможностью добавления своих (например общие фразы - "Хорошо, путь будет так", "Ну-да, ну-да", "Спасибо!", "Как ты?", "Какой кошмар!", "Привет! Как дела?" и т.д.)
    Смайликов и эмодзи много, но они не всегда подходят. Требуется именно текст.

  19. skype business - remove or deminish distracting 'saved conversation' message

    The 'we saved this conversation' that pops up at the end of a chat after a while is very distracting. I suggest having it not move any of conversation and gently fading in if required at all.

  20. Find Old historical

    Bonsoir,
    Il serait très intéressant pour les usagers de skype ne s'étant pas connecter depuis plusieurs mois de retrouver leurs historiques.
    Personnellement nous aimerions retrouver nos historiques de conversation de l'année 2012. Sachant que nous ne sommes plus sur le même ordinateur qu'a l'époque. Il faudrait trouver un moyen de télécharger un historique en particulier, même s'il fallait payer une légère somme.

    Merci de travailler sur ce sujet.

    Best regards
    A Deveaux
