  2. can skype be used "as" facetime? My sister is non-tech and has facetime on her mac. I use skype. Is there any way to make east meet west?

    Could there be an add on to skype that would emulate factime? I am in New Mexico with skype and windows 10 and my sister is in Massachusettes with a mac and factime. Is there any way these two products could handshake?

  5. edit feature

    If a message is edited and sent by the sender, the receiver should get a notification that the original message is been edited.

    Some color change or anything which is eye catchy.

  6. User defined, Skype Name

    I hereby submit my idea of having a user-defined "Skype Name". The current alphanumeric system in place right now seems very unprofessional. The e-mail address is good enough for a unique identification I feel. In my personal opinion, a user-defined "Skype Name" would be a better option as one's e-mail id could be avoided for the safety and security of users who would not feel comfortable in divulging the same publicly.

  10. Your services have deteriorated. I can no longer see my children in SA and Peru, you cant' guarantee visual. Really?

    Get with the program and deliver allow parents to see their children when communicating via SKYPE. Do not cop out and say you cannot promise a visual.

  19. Please provide a tab to manage all our Group Chats

    Currently it is hard to find what group chats we have created or joined, and we may created group chat with same participants over and over again... And it is hard to check which group chats we have to leave upon leaving the organization
