  3. I cancelled my Skype afternoon using it for about 10 years. How do I know that I no longer have an account? There has been no

    I have cancelled my account but have had no feedback from Skype acknowledging it received my request and cancelled the account. Is it policy to respond? If not, how do I know I succeeded?

  7. Merge accounts

    Bring back the possibility to merge accounts. I had a skype address. Now I have a MS account and another Skype address linked to it. It would be nice to be capable of merging them. This function is not available now, I will have to delete one of my accounts, lose some contact.

  11. Use bot to detect spam, but use humans to determine if it is a human or a bot sending spam messages. ignore if human sends tons of messages

    Use bot to detect spam, but use humans to determine if it is a human or a bot sending spam messages. ignore if human sends tons of youtube and pixiv links
    Because my account got tagged as a spammer some how. Looks like you cant send messages anymore with photos and links anymore. Hate using discord. Please fix this issue. its a trend on twitter now

  13. Unlinking Skype from Microsoft or but transferring to another Microsoft account

    Is it technically impossible to unlink Skype account form Microsoft account, or ist it just an unwillingess of Microsft to do that. Many of us have the same issue and my opinion is that Microsoft is dooing nothing.

  14. Change Skype Name

    I have a horrible Skype name live:.cid.a764c76ce9eb3ee2 and all the support just says it can't be changed. Obviously Microsoft is not listening because I see the same complaint everywhere. It is sad that our company is going to leave the Skype service for a competitor for a very simple issue but we can't give our skype name over the phone with a ****** name like that. It sure feels like the skype team is not listening.

  15. Need the option to change Skype Name

    (Reference to chat ID 1494001547)

    We need the ability to change the Skype ID for our account. "AsymmetricConflict" was established quite a few years ago, and has a SkypeIn number attached. We are still using the account and the number, but for a completely different business, Kasva Press LLC. Unfortunately, Skype currently offers no way to change the Skype ID - so people making contact with Kasva Press are still shown "AsymmetricConflict" when they connect to us.

    We can't simply open a new Skype account, since all our contacts use our existing SkypeIn number. So until and unless Skype offers…

    Please update your service to allow users to make updates to their user name (not just their display name).

  18. sign in

    Please make the sign in procedure easier simpler and faster. Especially when you re using the app from abroad. ( far away from your home address). Stop these double triple etc. verification procedures through questions that you might not even remember at the time.
    Its a total waste of time and you should look at it.

  20. Bring back conversations from 2012 onwards

    Hi.
    I would really like to know if I could have access to messages I had with a Skype contact in 2012/2013. I recently logged back into my account since then and all the messages were gone.
    It would mean the absolute world to me if I had access to the old conversations. Thank you
