  1. Labels for deleted messages

    Skype is used as a professional chat tool, so it must show labels for deleted messages unless they are seen, & also an option to recover that deleted message if required.

  5. Default messages

    I think it would be very cool if you could add your own default message after a call is over, declined or missed.

  6. Use Spanish punctuation in my chats.

    Although my native language is English, when I type a message in Spanish I would like to be able to use the correct question mark and exclamation at the beginning of my sentence (upside down).

  7. SMS id verification

    Skype needs to be able to receive SMS messages and calls regarding id verification. It seems more and more this feature is being disabled with skype.

  8. TEXT TEMPLATES FOR SKYPE - WHY IS THIS NOT AVAILABLE? THIS IS INSANE?

    Why is there no option for templated messages, and a drop down feature which allows me to insert a message I type again and again every day?

    This feature is not available in the worlds largest messaging platform? How can this possibly not be a feature in skype? This is INSANE?

  12. Enable sending attachments (like pictures) through Skype SMS

    Currently Skype SMS doesn't allow for sending pictures to others who aren't on Skype. You can call, you can text, but for some reason you can't send or receive a picture. Please make this an option!

  13. Turn off auto-convert of emoticons

    Please, for the love of all things holy, give us an option to turn off auto-conversion of emoticons to emojis. I just want to use my typed faces in peace without having to make a space. Please.

  14. Introduce people option

    So, you have someone in your skype contacts. And you send a request so you can introduce them. If they agree to the request by clicking yes, you can send the introduce to people. There could be some auto sent polls between the 2 about themselves with a 3rd option: I'd rather not say. And you could send a request to both the people to see the introduce chat. The introducing would take about 5 - 10 minutes.

  17. Chinese spam

    Make a setting to block messages and requests from Skype accounts not in your contacts. They clearly have a backdoor because changing account visibility does not work - thats like taking your info out of the yellow pages and expecting not to get cold calls. Literally every social media platform has thing setting or something like it. It is so annoying that I'm dropping my subscription and switching to a platform that is operating in the space age. Skype is like the plenty of fish of calling apps.

  19. fire the developers of the Skype mobile application for android

    Hello. I propose to dismiss and recruit new Skype developers not like you are now recruited in the development department of the Skype anedroid mobile application. The interface is not optimized at all; constant brakes and freezes even on the flagship model devices. Voice messages can be heard 10 times, but not only on mine Android smartphone but also to other participants that I send. Therefore, think about your software is the most inhibitory on the messenger market, many have switched to others, you are doing everything there, but you are updating everything, but only there is no integration of…

  20. It would be great to have a selection of themes to put in the backround of the chats like fb messenger does. It makes it more personal

    It would be great to have a selection of themes to choose from to personalise your chat like fb messenger. It makes it feel more personal and looks nice also with different fonts for your messages to choose from or different fonts go with different themes. My favourite theme on fb messenger right now is the hearts with a purple/pink backround. Would love to have a variety, would be great. I even thought of butterflies with a shimmer effect around them with the font being fancy
