  6. CAN WE PLEASE HAVE REGULAR :) OR ;) OR STUFF LIKE THAT, IT REALLY KILLS THE VIBE WHEN MY SMILEY FACES OR SAD FACES IMMEDIATELY BECOME EMOJIS

    Whenever I try to write :) or :( or ;) or ;( these lovely, delicate smiley faces are processed into Skype's emojis. I wish there was an option to disable this shortcut. Sometimes emojis are useful, sometimes they are the spawn of *****. Please give Skype users the option to use typed out smiley/sad faces or emojis. Thank you.

  12. Recover password

    I used "reset password" function on skype app, and chose to receive code via 1 of the email on the list. I tried 3 times, and waited for 3 hours but still not receiving anything (while I am receiving other emails as normal). I requested to receive again my skype name via text and again i am not receiving the text. Then I was told that I should fill in form via live website and recover via alternative email... I answered all questions, and again, not receiving any response, and I was then told I need to wait for 24…

  15. Mute all sounds !

    Mute all sounds does not Work !
    And no response from Skype at all.
    Even it is a Windows option, so it is your own software you have to get working together !
    It worked in Skype Classic, but now ********* !

    So when will that be fixed ???

    I give you an example about how much a pain ********** it is,
    I get a phone call on Skype, my computer is a sleep mode, then i have to wake up the computer, mute my online radio, then answer the call manually by clicking on Skype !

    In Skype Classic,…

  16. Please allow personalised voicemail greetings.

    Instead of the default Skype voicemail greeting, it would be much better if you could personalise the greeting before someone leaves a message.

  17. Please allow to mention someone in group chat by his "Skype Name" (Skype ID)

    I often change my friends name when adding them to my contact list.
    I'm only able to mention my friend in group chat by his "original" name, not "Skype Name" (Skype ID), not saved name in my contact list.
    Then, if I forget his "original name", which I can not see it anymore after changing it when added to my contact list, I'm unable to mention him in group chat.

  19. Current version seems to have speakers muted irrelevant of any attempt to unmute them.

    The speakers are muted by default with no way to unmute them; when establishing a call we cannot hear the ringing, although when the call is established we here the other party. Please correct. (WIN 10 version
    1809, SKYPE 8.50.0.38, ASUS LAPTOP GL753VE)
