Microsoft boasted it had rebuilt Skype 'from the ground up'. Instead, it should have buried it

Emojis need to die in a fire.

In fact, any and all auto-corrections - where you type one set of characters, and $SOFTWARE converts them into another character that it thinks you really wanted to type instead - need to stop right now. (I'll allow exceptions for common typos, such as "abotu". But even those need to be completely customisable.)

Don't change my text to emojis, don't auto-format my lists, and shove your "smart quotes" where the Windows don't open.
