A Skype certified bot, like the What's New bot, lets you know about new features and announcements for Skype right in your chat. Skype certified bots have a square profile picture, a certified checkmark, and are available in all languages.
Can I block or remove Skype certified bots, like the What's New bot?
You cannot block or remove the What's new bot but you can opt out of the announcements.
To opt out:
- From Chats, select your profile picture.
- Select Settings.
- Select Notifications.
- Turn the toggle for Tips & Tricks off. You can turn the notifications back on at any time.
Note: When you opt out of Tips & Tricks, you'll no longer receive in app notifications about Skype features. However, you will continue to receive critical system notifications.
