  2. Please Bring the UWP version back.

    The UWP version of Skype was real good. It had a nice UI which was user friendly. The electron version looks dated, and there's a white bar at the top which remains white even when you switch to dark mode which just ruins the whole look.

  4. My skype doesn't get automatically updated. Surface pro 7 with Windows 10 Home 1903. My Skype version is My Skype version is 8.56.0.102.

    My skype doesn't get automatically updated. Surface pro 7 with Windows 10 Home 1903. My Skype version is My Skype version is 8.56.0.102. It's causing issues in syncing. Once I updated it to the latest version of Skype, I stopped having issues with messages unsynced from the server. I'm not supposed to constantly check updates, uninstall and install new apps etc. Plus, even if I try to update it within the app, there is no way to do it barring "Join Preview". Take care of it.

  10. When clicking on the box to type, it needs to be expanded out further. Not just the tiny "Type Message Here"

    Frustrating to type whole sentence and look up and its not there. Need to be able to click that entire section, not just small "Type Message Here" section.

  13. Close "invite to skype" graphic or Reduce the size

    The "Invite to Skype" graphic blocks too much of the screen - the user cannot see message history or easily access the play button for voicemails. If the size of the graphic cannot be reduced, then please allow it to be closed on a contact-by-contact basis so when history is needed, it can be minimized.

  14. Emoticons (Skype Business)

    Just a quick piece of feedback! In Skype Business, can you make the 4 following emoticons 'Simpsons Yellow' (or perhaps make them customizable) as opposed to "default Caucasian?" The emoticons in question are: YES, NO, HANDSHAKE, and MUSCLE. Thanks!
