    The black theme looks terrible, the colorful message background makes the message dazzling

  2. 查看消息不方便

    查看信息也比较不方便,群组消息和联系人消息不好区分,有些信息也不是按照时间顺序排列,容易忽略一些信息

  10. Saving All Chat History From Beginning To Now *&* Moving Forward, W/ The Ability To View Chat History Like Before.

    It is very important for many of us to be able to continue to have our chat history on Skype from the beginning to now and moving forward.. Along with the option to view history, like we did on Skype V7, by going to "Conversation" and "View History". This would allow us to go back where we needed, without going at a snail's pace. Whether that be going to the very beginning, a year, or a month. This was very efficient and helpful. Thank you.

  12. delayed messaging

    Sometimes I find something online (such as a Youtube video) and I want to send a friend the link. However, it may well be the middle of the night for my friend if they live on the other side of the world. I don't know if they have audio alerts switched on and I don't want to wake them for something that is trivial.

    It would be good if I could create a message and then order it to be sent at a more convenient time, a few hours into the future. Apologies if this is already possible and I…

  14. Skype should Intelligently switch from Skype to Skype to text like Apple does with iMessage

    One thing that I can say about Apple's iMessage is that I love the way it intelligently switches from iMessage to text for users that don't have iMessage on their devices. If Microsoft could implement such a feature for Skype and then add all of Facebooks nice features then I think Skype would be much more useful for people.

  15. Skype Number should be allowed to receive text.

    You can send messages from your Skype Number if you set it as primary on Skype. It would be nice if a person could receive messages on their device. A person could potentially turn a tablet or PC that only has wifi into a device that can make/ receive calls and text. Only the receiving part is missing.

  17. Allow Outgoing Messages - PLEASE !!!

    It is imperative to have an outgoing messages. I live in Las Vegas. My phone number is 1 number different from the major hospital here. I field an average of 53 calls a day that are wrong numbers.

    Back when we were allowed to have an outbound message, my message with say, "If you are calling Sunrise Hospital, you have dialed incorrectly, please call 702-xxx-xxxx. If you are trying to reach (MY Company) please leave a message.

    Now not only do you not allow a customized outgoing message, your generic message is that of a young lady with a British…

  20. Let us edit Private Conversation messages, if possible.

    If it is technically feasible, let us edit already sent Private Conversation posts. I miss that compared to Standard Skype.
