I'm making a "clone" of Skype Classic! Plz suggest features

so im making a Skype Classic clone in .NetFX 3.5 (Windows XP support), where i’ll try to make the user interface as similar as possible. but i dont think ill be able to completely implement features such as calling.
does anyone have any suggestions as to what features i should add? (plz keep it simple its for a school project :slight_smile:)

Idk if this is possible but try adding ways to like edit ur own profile like adding profile pictures customizing bio and try adding that Skype feed thingy? I can send some screenshots of how it looked like and it seems like ur recreating the Skype web wrapped version from 2015 i think?

Can you make it look like Skype 5.0 ?
like this :

woah thatd be kinda hard, especially since theres like rounded corners
i dont rlly hv much HTML experience, and im making this application using WinForms/Windows EXE. ill see what i can do.

i would recommend adding status updates and Skype Home and try to add most of the OG emoticons

I can understand that, don’t worry, I just hoped that it would have a more… Retro style. Anyway, good luck !
