The future of Skype is determined. Microsoft decided, even after quite an opposing feedback, that the Skype 7.0 is the part of history.

As of November, all Skype users will be forced to either ditch Skype and choose an alternative app or settle for the Skype 8.0. This one is quite similar to the mobile version, with all traits of an instant messenger. Among the other features, Skype 8 includes message reactions.

These allow you to use an emoji and react to the message. A silly addition, especially for Bussines users who use Skype for formal contacts.

How can I disable ‘React to this message’ Skype alerts

There’s no option to disable these, so you’ll need to get used to it. Of course, you can avoid them, just don’t click on that emoji icon under the sender’s name and you’ll be golden. There might be an option in the future, though, as a lot of users are not satisfied with this and some other additions to the latest release of Skype.

But, for the time being, you can try them out and judge on your own. If it happens, by chance, that you’ve accidentally placed a reaction, you can remove it in the same manner. Just click on the reaction icon next to the sender’s name and click again on the emoji you’ve used. Simple as that.

We hope this was an informative read and make sure to tell us your opinion on the changes Microsoft made to Skype. You can do so in the comments section below.
