  1. edit feature

    If a message is edited and sent by the sender, the receiver should get a notification that the original message is been edited.

    Some color change or anything which is eye catchy.

  3. New Reaction

    I was hoping to get Brendon Urie's gross reaction removed from skype and instead get a Tyler Joseph reaction. e.g. "SICK"
    Thank you.

  5. Allow removal of translated messages as well as the original message

    I am aware that I can only remove the messages from a conversation that I sent however, if those messages were translated using the Skype translator, how do I remove the translated versions also? Will removing the bot from the group remove the translated messages? If I remove the messages I sent in English but can't remove the messages after they were translated into Spanish, French or German, then removing my original English messages is meaningless as the translated version will still be present on the recipient's side. There should b a way to remove the translated messages as well…

  12. keep track of input settings per different chats

    In mine line of work I have to type messages in different languages in different chats.
    I would be nice if each chat remembers the input method (keyboard selected) per chat (contact or group) chat so I dont have to switch back and forth and typing messages in wrong keyboard.

  13. editor text

    Hello Skype Team,


    • could it be possible to have some basic editor on the chatting box, to be able to use bullets points, bold for formatting text?

    • and use ENTER not SHIFT+ENTER for the new text line?

    • and when we receive a new message, we see it in the red circle on the Chat icon, but when we click on this red circle this should point to the new messenger?

    thank you

    Add auto suggestion setting for some keywords. This has be set by user level not by bot

    For example - Good Morning -> Good Morning

                        Happy Birthday - > Thank you

  15. Update the camera so a photo can be taken at a distance, without involving your cloud

    Add a timer to the camera and add the ability to attach an Apple headphone cord and use it to take a photo.

  17. Custom Categories

    The ability to sort/add chats or contacts to customized categories would be awesome. As it stands the only options are "Chats" and "Favorites".

  19. Chat windows positioning settings

    Older versions I was able to view messages that expanded to the margins of my monitor. That was because I was able to set chat to the bottom of the screen and thus it was showing me the chat with the maximum width possible. In newer versions this is not possible since the chat window is narrower.
