  1. Update the Skype Name at least through Microsoft Support

    I have created the Skype Name a long time ago using my First Name and Last Name. It has changed through the years and I would like to change my Skype Name too because it confusing for the people that I communicate with but unfortunately, I do not have the opportunity to do this in any way even though Skype Support. I provide my case number 1487069621

  4. Automatic availability

    I love the feature that you can change your availability (active, away, do not disturb, invisible) but once you change it, you can not reset it so that it automatically updates your availability. I believe this feature should be installed for both easy use of the app, and the fact that this is almost a bug or glitch already, so the installation of this feature will most definitely fix that bug.

    I want to change my name from all the numbers to a new user name so people can find me easier. I can't seem to do that in this new version.

  11. Since Skype has already feature for money transfer, it should have ability to transfer fund between Skype and Paypal.

    If I have xtra Skype credit, I should be able to transfer it to my link Paypal account and vice versa. It will maximize the ability of fund management for Skype users.

  12. Landline as caller id

    I’m wanting to use Skype to make work calls when out of the office, and for my iD to show up as our landline number. The trouble is I can’t register the number as Skype requests a txt confirmation, and with different numbers or it showing as blocked my clients won’t answer my calls

  15. User those not using site more then a week can be blocked.

    User those who are not visiting Skype within a set timeline like a week or month can be blocked can get a single reminder after then permanently blocked and there I'd will be totally wash no more display or searchable.

  16. Skype Name must be changeable.

    We should be able to select and change our own user names instead of the mixed-numbered id. People find us faster with our usernames and it's awful to see these ugly id numbers.

  19. Profile Status with the same account

    Hi
    Return separate status on the same account.
    I have Skype on my laptop and on my phone. I was able to pick different profile status on each but now after the most recent update a few days ago now if I put online both of my skype goes online. I am using the same account and I was before but before I was able to have 2 different statues but now no.
    I really think its important to have two different statues especially on the phone since its 24/7 with you as a person.
    Thanks
