  2. Theme colors for both sent and received messages, not just one!

    I would love it if I could assign [different!] colors to both the messages I send and the ones I receive. Right now I can assign a color to one or the other, but not both, and the one that doesn't get a color is stuck at plain, boring white.

  6. emoticon

    as many people are working from home now, they usually deal with power cuts. so it would be good to have an emoticon that says power is out.

  7. quote image

    Hi Team,

    Many times we write our note or required sentences in image itself and we send that image to the group. Later on we need to quote the image but we can't because we don't have this option yet. So we need to quote the text just below of the image which is irrelevant to the image results in confusion in the conversation.

    I request you to add this feature in the next update. It will help a lot of people out there.

    Thank you

    Regards,

    Raghaw

  11. A way to turn off emojis

    I like some of the emojis, but i want to have the option to say ":(" without an emoji that takes away the comedic effect. Maybe make the emojis only appear when you put something in parenthesis (such as (monkey))

  19. In Android settings, if Display->font is set to "default," "large," or "large," then in Skype a long text is truncated or cut off.

    If in Android settings (Display - > font) , I set "font size" to "default," "large," or "largest," then the Skype message text is cut off / truncated at the bottom of a text box. The text only appears properly when the font size is set to "small," so if it doesn't work on default font size, it's obviously a bug.

  20. In Android settings, if Display->font is set to "default," "large," or "largest," then in Skype messeging the text is truncated or cut off.

    In Skype Android messages are sometimes cut off / truncated.

    I see that If in Android settings (Display - > font) , I set "font size" to "default," "large," or "largest," then the Skype message text is cut off / truncated at the bottom of a text box. The text only appears properly when the font size is set to "small," so if it doesn't work on default font size, it's obviously a bug.

    I;m running Android 10 on a Moto G7 Plus
