Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
What platform are you running Skype on, please? Windows PC, Apple computer, Android handheld, Apple iPxxxx device ?
Is Skype already installed?
Was there any choice for Language when you installed it?
What version is the new version?
When did you last try to change language... or is this the first time you have tried?
I suggest that you restart your computer.
See if that gets the globe icon and the language choice back.
If that doesn't work, uninstall Skype.
Restart your computer.
Then download the freshest version of Skype. Install it, and look for the Language box or choice, and select a language there.
