Bring back the Skype integration
The Skype ias apparently gone from Outlook.com beta, as the Skype button near the Settings cog icon is nowhere to be found. I think many users didn't like the integration (there was no way to completely disable it) but it still was a nice feature for Skype users.
Update January 2018:
Skype is back! :)
More improvements to the Skype integration will come in the future, but for now, please enjoy the upgraded Skype chat experience!
P.S.: If you wish to mute notifications, you can do so in the Settings panel under General > Skype > Notifications.
Loved the beta, brings it closer to the real thing, however the previous version had a Skype option - top right, fourth from the right.
The idea - put the Skype back where it belongs, or anywhere else prominently enough

Skype should be as it was in outlook mail
where is the skype option???
I agree. I'd always liked to just go right from the e-mail to the Skype IM because it's easier than opening up the official Skype. I really liked the integration; one of the main things that made me want to use Outlook in particular rather than any other emailing site.
Designer bem legal, porém e a página do skype que ficava na tela principal logo do lado? Tem que entrar em outra pagina para abrir o skype? Não gostei dessa mudança sobre o skype, do resto ok!

Me gusta la version beta pero no esta el boton de skype para chat
i need the skype messanger integrate with the email. it is already same account so why seperate them?
I think it would be a good idea to keep the icon in the same place.

A opção de deixar o Skype junto ao e-mail é boa, na versão nova não tem esta possibilidade.
Gostaria que a conta estivesse vinculada ao skype como a versão mais antiga é, facilita o trabalho na rotina. Obrigada
When we get use to the old format - Why the ..... you want to change. And it's so dam confusing. Where did skype go????

Please, bring Skype to outlook. Since I have been using the beta is difficult to know if someone calls. Also, bring notifications
Does not have the skype section, for me it is necessary
I am OK with Skype integration as long as it does not affect performance. I think skype application should be loaded only if user clicks on message icon or at the end when entire mail application is loaded so it does not slowdown mail experience.
Falta integração com Skype. Na atual versão temos opção para bate papo com Skype.
