  7. As a parent of a child that uses Skype, I would like a feature that obfuscates profanities and references to inappropriate objects in chat

    As a parent of a child that uses Skype, I would like a feature that automatically obfuscates profanities and references to inappropriate objects in chat based on the age of the recipient and/or the message sender.

  12. Replying back

    Is it possible to make the forward option or replying back to the same message be more faster, like a single click in the home page.

  13. Remove "reaction emojis" and bring back the suggestions.

    Removing the messaging suggestions was terrible, it was a great feature that allowed you, in a rush to send a quick reply, allowing the discussion to proceed later.

    The emoji reaction is akin to a like button, basically meaningless and a conversation killer.

    Bring back "And bacon!" and get read of "EGGPLANT".

  15. User defined rendering engine

    You have to target the technically challenged, we get that.

    But if you made the renderer a separate module with proper APIs then technically competent people who want to use it for collaboration could install their own renderer that handles specialised requirements properly. For example I wrote a renderer for printing from VS Code - it wouldn't be hard to adapt that, and then not only would I be free from the stupid emojis, I could use language specific syntax colouring in code fenced blocks and in particular use TeX markup for equations.

    You don't need to bother with integrating…

  17. Embeddable chat box/room

    Worked for an inbound-call customer service center and we always had a team chat going for quick access to new information releases and anything else we could imagine. Now working for a large manufacturing organization needing transparency and cohesion it would be great to be able to embed a chat box into an company tool. Also would love to be able to drag a file or screenshot and place it into the window.
