  1. 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.

  2. Ability to insert a picture to a Skype account.

    It would be great if we could insert a picture for easier identification of skype accounts.

    Мои родители живут очень далеко, и у них нет возможности вместо windows xp поставить новый windows чтобы установить новую версию scype. До последних дней всё работало. Но тут вы сделали "добро" и закрыли их скайп. "Молодцы", я поставлю родителям другую программу, и помогу перевести всех их друзей на неё. А уж если scype подсовывает своим пользователям такое дерьмо, то и не стоит он того чтобы им пользовались. Да и не заметно каких либо улучшений. Гадко стало.

  10. Forget Sign In Details

    Can we get the forget sign in details feature back? With the "don't remember my account on this computer" feature, I have to go through the entire process of resetting all my settings whenever I log back in. It's a hassle.

  11. Sign Out on All Devices

    Most other social medias have a way of signing out on every device, preventing potential fraud from lost devices.

  14. Suggestions

    (1) Please add "undo" actions for unwanted actions like accidentally deleting messages; wrong sent messages; etc.

    (2) Make a better distinction and marks for statuses. I suggest in color specific:


    • invisible mode: gray color with ? on it

    • offline mode: blue color with x mark on it

    • away mode: orange color with clock on it (as is)

    • busy mode: red color with "-" on it (as is)

    • active mode: green color with check mark on it

    • when inactive mode: yellow color with "..." on it

    if you think of a better marks much better, the above mentioned is just a…

  16. Changing your Skype account

    Good afternoon. I have a Skype account for a very long time. Even before Microsoft bought Skype. After that I created a Microsoft account which is based on the same mail as Skype.
    Microsoft has created a new Skype account in its account.
    And now I cannot delete my new Skype account and change to my old Skype.

  17. Please allow us to show only birth month and date without the year.

    Some of us are trying to avoid age discrimination in the workplace, and we'd rather not have our real age in everyone's face. However, birthday wishes are always nice.

  19. Change "last seen" to show actual date+time+timezone, instead of vague "days ago" (even, when contact was last online months or years ago)

  20. profile

    I hope Skype will add 'story' just like the messenger and Instagram. So that for those students who are less expressive and shy, they can be confident by sharing things by posting. Students who studied online will not feel bored. Just saying
