PLease reinstate the ability to personalize Voice Mail. I have been a Skype Line In user for years and depend on this feature for business.

If you don't bring back personalised voicemail - I will be forced to find another solution. I've been paying for a Skypein number for years and voicemail is essential. Surely it's a basic feature for anyone, let alone business users. please re-instate it.
Please release a new version and include the ability to customize voicemail greeting.
Need personalized voicemail back ASAP. We badly need this feature. Please hear your customers. I've ben a paid user for years, but if you will not return that feature, I won't hesitate to unsubscribe and try something else. The old Skype was even better than the latest version. If only I can restore the old version I would have done that.
You removed it.. now please bring it back
The idea that few people used it was nonsense. They PAYING people used it... and they are more vocal in the online community than just the average users.
Please bring it back... its important
After selecting a cool Skype phone number for my new business today, I chose to purchase it for 12 months. I thought it was the ideal solution to not having to carry 2 phones around with me (I don't have a dual sim smartphone). BUT I couldn't record a personal voice mail greeting! That is absolutely absurd and a huge over site by Skype developers. This feature is 100% essential for business use. I now need to buy a 2nd phone and sim from elsewhere. Thankfully the Skype customer service rep was amazing and processed a full refund.
I don't understand why we still don't have the option to personalize our voicemail greeting. This feature is very important for those of us who pay for a Skype #. I will have to search other options if this issue doesn't get resolved asap.
In old Skype I could record my own voice greeting for callers to hear before leaving a message on my voice mail. This is essential! People are far less likely to leave a message if they don't hear your voice because they are not completely certain they got the right voice mail box!
RESTORE THE ABILITY TO RECORD OUR OWN VOICE MAIL GREETING!!
Need personalized voicemail back asap.

As a professional who pays annually for Skype calls and a Skype #, I want to be able to personalize my voice mail. It's mission critical!
i have been a paying customer for skype for over 10 years you need to bring back. Ability to personalize voicemail Plus i have Office 365 E3. So i am paying to use your services. I may just goto G Suite. They have customize Google voice for free
Could we please get the personalized voicemail message brought back as the current one doesn't sound very professional

Could we please get personalized Skype Voicemail back as your AI doesn't sound very good. The current one doesn't sound very professional at all
Please bring back the personalize voicemessage greeting!! I also use this for my business.
As a business owner, I find it crazy and unfortunately that Microsoft removed my ability to have a custom voicemail message for my customers. I would cancel and go to another service but unfortunately, we printed the Skype number that we pay for on over 250,000 packages. I honestly feel as this is a breach of contract since it was available when we signed up and paid for a private number. Then, with no warning or notice, the ability to have a custom voicemail message went away. How are our customer supposed to know they reached the right place if we cannot tell them on the outgoing voicemail message. Worst change ever in the history of Skype!
Bring back the feature that allows user to personalize his outgoing voicemail message.

Please bring back customized voicemail. Callers are much less likely to leave a message with the standardized message which can lead to delays, lost business and general frustration. Really, Microsoft, get with the program. And I am not voting for this option because to do so I need to subscribe to updates and notices. Please stop imposing more unsolicited services and listen to your account holders.

Why can I not have my own message on my Skype number when I do not answer? The canned message is pathetic .... "You have reached 412 922 1234 .....".
It feels like this is still in the 1990s. Quite unprofessional.

I'm a charter user of Skype, through all the catastrophes of designs that didn't work, interfaces that didn't work, etc. Nevertheless, I and most other users stayed with Skype.
I don't believe the story that custom voicemail was a little-used product. All of my fellow Skypers used it. I believe that's an excuse for not adequately spending to support yet another Skype feature that made it unique.
It's absurd that Microsoft has diminished Skype's appeal, to the point that former users are flocking to alternate VOIP suppliers. Get with it, MSFT.
