  5. Star Emoji Gone... Why?!

    I was very sad to see the star emoji go in the Skype chat. There is no other emoji that conveys the same emotion as the star. Please bring it back!

  7. Voice Message Preview

    It would be really great if there was a configurable UI option in the settings to listen to/preview one's voice message BEFORE sending.

  8. Ability to disable the auto reply of “Give me a call when you’re back.”

    This auto reply is annoying and there is no way to disable it. It leaves a draft after inputting the auto reply.

  10. avif

    Skype only downloads but does not display a *.avif file, which then must be manually displayed by the user, invoking Paint.net, GIMP, or Chrome. Skype should be able to handle an avif file as easily as a jpg or png image.

  11. Enable selection of all messages in a conversation rather than one at a time. Too time consuming to select one at a time.

  16. putting complete date instead of day of the week in the chat

    I think is a good idea to put the full date and days of the weeks in the history of the chats instead of showing days of the week alone. it can be done in all of the chat histories for the current most recent one to the last ones.

    actually, the software and the app lack showing the "chats date" history in the most recent ones; however, showing the days of the week has been the perfect idea for the user as it showed the exact date of the chat or the video conference.

    to be honest not showing…

  18. Add ability to block all SMS

    I use Skype as a VOIP, nothing else. People assume my number is a mobile and text me, which chews up credit. Give me the ability to block all SMS capabilities. Some of us want to use Skype as a telephone, not a messaging platform.

  19. Collapse quoted message when the reply contains text

    When you quote some message, don't show all text of the original message because it takes sooo much space in the chat window if the original message is long. To see full message you can just click the original message preview and it leads you to the original message. Similar approach is done in Telegram.
    * When you forward message or quote without your reply text, show full original message.

  20. chats

    Fix Chats button / icon so when you click on it, you are taken to the most recent "Chat" group conversation. (At present on Skype for Windows, clicking on Chats doesn't seem to do anything?
