But Skype community managers have reportedly decided that some of the emoticons had become too racy after complaints.
According to Skype community manager “Claudius,” the change was made because they had “the potential to offend some users.” “These hidden emoticons indeed got removed with 6.14 because of them or their shortcodes having the potential to offend some users,” he wrote.
Skype, for example, also supports video message recording.
Instead of waiting for your spouse to be around for a live chat, you can record something in advance for him (or her) to watch when they have a chance.
