    I suggest that paid services have access to a person for help. The level of service went from very bad to non-existent. I just want a test SMS sent to me.

  7. Leave Message

    Users should have an option to set up auto-reply message, when they are away from Skype. It should work like auto-reply mail. User should be able to enable it by writing his/her message whenever it is required.

  8. Real time texting

    A feature that allows for real time texting, i.e. the receiver sees what the sender is typing in real time without pressing the send button, is a major improvement in real time communication. This is a service that has become compulsory for all new phones, and it would be a great feature on Skype. It would be a highly attractive feature for the hard of hearing/speech impaired community, which would be more inclined to use Skype. Many thanks for your consideration.

  10. split view refresh

    Bug: Desktop client, Windows, current version (8.75.0.140): in Split mode, some conversations stop refreshing after some time – I don't see both new incomming messages or my new messages. I can see them only in main (list) window. WA: close window & open again.

  12. hide a message in a chat

    Message options should have option of hiding/unhiding a particular message in a chat even when chat is open for the security purpose. [e.g. if somebody has shared a login credentials with 2nd user, then 2nd user can hide message containing credentials in it and still keep the chat open and only unhide the message when s/he need to use credentials.]

  13. Improved Conversation History

    Improve the Conversation History such as view and search from a central webpage/server location such as used in TEAMS rather than have it viewed from the conversation history in Outlook / Exchange email folder as the search and view experience is not optimal using mailbox and may have duplicates

  16. Option to pin a message on top of the conversation in the skype groups

    Hi,

    Some skype groups are really busy with continuous messages, so there is a possibility of missing to read important messages for the group members.

    As a solution to overcome the issue - It would be great if we can have an option to pin a message on top of the conversation in the skype groups.

    Thank you !

  17. Basic feature

    Add a feature :- Feature to select multiple messages at once

    When you want to forward more than one message to someone, Skype does not allow you to select multiple messages at once, you have to select them one by one which is very annoying and time consuming. Please provide this basic feature in your next update. Thanks

  20. Here is a Bug in your Message Box

    A conversation between two person or in a group amoung all members can be editable for a time of period
    Like in other chat apps(e.g whatsapp) you can delete send message untill a fixed time if the sender deletes any message the reciever will get a message deleted notification in notification bar
    But In Skype this thing is just reverse.
    A sender can edit and change the content of message any time and it will be render on the reciever side without any notification.
    This will lead the conflits in conversation, one can change their old send messages without any…
