  2. Messages that can be seen only on the end device you lastly used.

    Hi Skype Team, a feature that will have conversation only on the device you chatted with someone will be much better

  3. There should be an option to mark certain messages in a chat as OPEN

    If we can mark some messages as OPEN for which other user's comment or reply is awaited, it will make conversations more clear and robust. Users can know what points are pending to be responded to.

  9. Possibility to change keyboard layout for already typed message

    For users with multi-language keyboards add possibility to transform keyboard-layout.
    E.g. I typed word 'учфьзду' but using a key (or hotkeys like 'CTRL+R') it will transform to word 'example'.

  14. a problem with listening to voice messages in Skype

    Good day.

    Not so long ago, there was a problem with listening to voice messages in Skype. For some reason, I stopped hearing them from the computer. I didn't change anything in the settings, the sound as such (streams, YouTube, radio) works fine. At the same time, messages are listened to from the phone without problems. Tell me what exactly could be the problem and how to fix it, I really need it for work!

  17. Export FULL Skype 8 history rather than previous 6 months.

    The idea is simple, allow users to view messages from beyond 6 months. Sure, there's the function to export chat history from Skype 7.xx, but this still leaves major gaps in conversations. People are losing their messages and this is terrible.

  18. To me the most annoying part of Skype chat is that when I look at the past chats I can't easily see which day they are from.

    you need to improve the layout for text chat.
    Right now is very hard to know the date of the message.
    I can see hour and minute, but not the date.
    Sometimes the date appears, and sometime not.
    I suggest that you fire the person who designed it and hire someone with some sense.

  20. Give the access to copy message when its shown in desktop pop-up

    when we received the message then first it shows in the pop-up for some time. That message should get copied. so there is no need to in the app and copy it.
