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.

    I want to be able to sign into skype from my outlook like they do from business accounts. This way I can add to my calendar and it is readily available from my task bar like it used to be. What happened? Some of us work from home but don't have our own website etc.

    Please bring back the Skype pane at the right side of the screen. It is way more useful. Longer list of friends to see. And it is open all the to time when you want to keep an eye on it. The new (facebook) way of opening an extra pane for every chat you have, is giving so much clutter. The old way was simple and direct. One list, click on a username to go to the conversation, which stayed in the same pane. Any new messages fom others were visible at the side. Icon with little number in it. It is not necessary to make things "better" when they already are very efficient. Only thing you could change, is to make a setting that you can start outlook.com with the chatpane already opened at the side

    I logged on today and Skype is gone from the utility bar in the top right. Why?

  • Brett Wilms commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    When using "the new Outlook", there is no "Add Skype meeting" option in the tool bar. The previous web version of the Calendar has a button for this in the tool bar.

    hi, in the new outlook beta i finally see skype integration is back, thanks a lot, now people can actually use this and it's not missing anything from the previous version, thanks :)

    Skype is back! Not in the way it was before. It's a window that floats and the message window is underneath when a message is selected. Totally confusing, not a true integration as before. Also, just noticed that another useful feature has just disappeared, the translation option just below a contact profile is gone!

    Skype is still missing, unless you want us to open another webpage and login to use it - not quite the same as it being integrated in outlook
