Thank you everybody for your feedback! I’m happy to say that we’re constantly working on this to improve your messaging experience. We have just added 79 new emoticons :) Check them out and let me know how you like it.
I vote to have the option to turn off emoji conversations.
As a businessman it is very annoying to have these pop up whenever I use parenthesis around different words that I need to distinguish in my writing.
For example, if I type (happy) the smiley face emoticon will appear. This doesn't look professional at all. I have my own personal reasons for typing a word inside parenthesis, and I don't want Skype to change it into an emoticon.
Please give us the option to block this function. It's really annoying. Thanks!
Let us turn them off please. It's so distracting. Get rid of the react button.
I mean I'm really glad that there's all the pride flags now, but I absolutely HATE how it changes :3, for example, to an emoji, so can we please have an option to turn this off??
Adding my voice to the "let us disable emoticons" movement. Please.

Please add (tongueout) Cheeky emoji as react message.

The stupidest thing is that Skype replaces characters inside a string with emojis! Please make the auto replacement to work only on whole words.
For example, if I write "in TV" in Finnish, it's TV:ssä and that :s _inside the word_ turns into emoji! Unacceptable!

Stop adding more emoticons and let me get rid of them. I want to be able to disable these. I avoid using skype at all costs because of these stupid things.
Im glad you're working on giving more emojis. But do you think you could take a break from that and add an option to disable them? I would really appreciate it.
How about having an option to turn off emoji, or at least emoji animations? Please?! Can't be that difficult, right?
Would love to be able to turn off the moving animations of emoticons. It distracts so much that I have difficulty to focus on the matter we communicate about. Thanks for working on Skype!
Would really enjoy that feature to either turn off emojis or turn off text to emoji auto convert. Any word on when we'll be getting that feature back? Since it WAS a feature like 5 years ago?
Great. And how about the point "option to turn off emoji conversations"?
Hey, could you add a penguin smiling emoji, like the koala one, or the cat one? (smilecat) (smilekoala) etc. ? And you need a few more animals, too. This is of very serious importance now, I'm telling ya.
I love that you have the animated heart, the laughing head and the thumbs up animations available for the video chat, I would like to see a lot more of them to choose from they are fun

Ability to turn off emoticons still not present in 188.8.131.52
Hey. I use Skype for Business today and really think the emojis are pretty lacking to represent my office emotions. When will they be upgraded?
please Add Muppet Mojis that u removed from the skype
Add a fire emoji
It's too late. I already stopped using Skype because of the emoji that appears at the end of every line of text.
Agreed, literally can't live without it!
