  7. Bring back the feature to unlink your skype from your microsoft account!

    The option to delete your skype account without deleting your Microsoft account should be a feature! This is that you can't unlink your account. What was like "hmm you know what would be a good idea? Having to disable your Microsoft account in order to delete your skype account." Like honestly y'all are ******* for not having this option

  10. Profile name or username

    I've encountered a problem that requires your help. I am Asif Iqbal. At present, I am freelancing in graphics design alongside education. In the workplace, I have to communicate with domestic and foreign clients. That's why I chose Microsoft Skype as a mode of communication. I use the convenience of my self-banding (asifuix) so clients can easily find me! However I cannot change my Skype name (live: .cid.e309485a45ea9105). I need a username to match my own banding. I hope you give the right solution and cooperation.

  14. Fondo Pantalla

    En estos tiempo de Covid-19 Skype será el reemplazo de la reuniones principales.

    Sugiero incluir fondos de pantallas de fondos temáticos para hacer más amigables esas reuniones. Por ejemplo simular que estoy en una cafetería, en un ambiente laboral, etc.

    Ya que pueden difumar el fondo de pantalla quiere decir que lo pueden independizar de la imagen principal, el usuario, con lo cual puden cambiarlo por na temática en especial

    Saludos

  15. Change other people's profile picture on Skype (only you can see)

    Some people on skype's profiles are hard to tell apart or something so it would be nice to be able to change other's profiles but only you can see it. Changing them can also help you remember who is who.

  16. An invitation link through which a Skype user can directly connect to us on our Skype messenger should be valid for permanent basis

    An invitation link through which a Skype user can directly connect to us on our Skype messenger should be valid for permanent basis so that our visitor on the website can directly connect with us on skype with just a single click.

    I come to know from your customer support agent that link to share our profile which we get from share and connect option is valid for 24 hours only.

    To copy the name and find in skype is look hard compare to the one-click option. Isn't?

  17. Thumbnail Adjustability

    Allow users to adjust the thumbnail of their profile picture like every other social media does. This should have been a feature that was available since day one. Having a profile picture showing all the wrong portions in the thumbnail appears sloppy and completely unprofessional - This goes double for people using Skype For Business.

  19. Add current time and timezone

    I'd like to show local time of user in my contact list. I am attaching screenshot - https://prnt.sc/qzncde .
    You can easy understand what I'd like to say. It's so simple and you can add it in skype. It's small feature but It's help a lot. I have to check client's time on google each time.

    One more if you can do. On click client's time, it show differences of both time and if we want to calculate then give there calendar with time to easy calculate time difference.
