  2. Merge skype accounts.

    It's essential and not that hard. Sort it out.
    So many of us have been with skype for so long, you can't just create a microsoft version and make it impossible to merge them
    Serious sign-in issues

  4. Add a feature that allows you to change your Skype Name up to 2 times

    There should be a feature to let you change your skype name a limited number of times because some of the skype users are stuck with a default skype name or a name they did not think through when creating their account. Personally tired of the default name

  6. Unlink Skype name from wrongly linked Microsoft email account

    Please Microsoft, find a solution to unlink wrongly linked Microsoft email account with Skype name, in order to link the Skype name with the right Microsoft email account... There are a lot of people out there, who are struggling with the same issue. I understand it could have been our "fault" to link the wrong accounts, however, what could be done, SHOULD be able to be UNDONE, don't you think? :)

  15. Username change/deletion

    I understand that Skype got migrated to Microsoft and they are now connected and/or basically the same. But for me as an EU citizen it is concerning that as a result of this migration I cannot manage my data properly, it feels like I am not provided the means to handle my own personal information correctly corresponding to privacy laws. Here is the reason and the example:

    Your Skype account cannot be split from your MS account, that is a fact. Also, the Skype username chosen at registration cannot be changed. You can create another MS account + username to…

  16. D

    Does Microsoft has any plans to de-link the Skype and live email account? Its pretty scary and heavy handed when one reads the message of whole Microsoft account deletion when one tried to close the Skype account. No such warning comes when you first open the Skype account! I ended up with two account by accident and now I am not able to delete one of the account due to same reason.

  17. 1. Ich habe die deutsche Sprache eingestellt, wieso erscheint diese hier nicht ?

    Das Umschalten auf die jeweilige Sprache, trotz vorheriger Einstellung funktioniert nicht oder stark verzögert.
    Wieso werden hier überwiegend englische Begriffe gewählt, was jene Leute ausgrenzt, die diese Sprache nicht beherrschen.
    Ich kann nirgends einen Hinweis finden, ob es in einer Gesprächsrunde mit verschiedenen internationalen Teilnehmern, eine automatische Übersetzung gibt, die der jeweilige Teilnehmer bei sich eingestellt hat.

  18. skype free minutes balance display

    skype free minutes balance display on the app would be nice, rather than check/log on web accounts.
