  3. Add cryptocurrency micropayments to Skype (XRP and others)

    Dear Skype, The age of MicroPayments has come and we need your support. The era of Internet of Value is kocniking at the door. My idea is to implement micropayments in Skype. Allow us to buy SkypeCredits with XRpTipBot , allow us to send micro payments on Skype chat as well.
    Please have a look at http://xrptipbot.com/ and its open API https://www.xrptipbot.com/app/api-spec which is pretty easy to implement.
    XRPtipBot is now available in 40+ languages. It's available for Twitter / Reddit / Discord / Telegram and recently has been added to Microsoft Outlook please visit http://moneymessage.radynamics.com/moneymessage_www/
    What's more it has…

    Hi. Thanks for sharing this Idea! Cryptocurrency micropayments sounds really cool right :) Like any other leading technology company Microsoft is already testing blockchain.
    Although I don’t have any information about cryptocurrency adoption for Skype or any other MS product, please keep continue supporting this Idea. I will share it with our teams :)
    Note: I’ve edited the title of this Idea little bit so it fits to cryptocurrencies generally ;)

  5. Skype Layout

    Hello, friends!
    I have a suggestion that most of the users may like. We all know that most of the people hate the new Microsoft design. I think it would be GREAT if you add something in the settings that can change the WHOLE Skype layout. (Ringtones, design, settings, UI, etc.)

    For example I have 3 layouts to choose from:
    Microsoft Design (Default)
    Skype 6 Design (Classic)
    First ever Skype version (Old)

    If I choose Microsoft Design nothing would change as this will be the default one.

    If I choose the Skype 6 Design, the app would change EVERYTHING so…

  7. Change Skype Name or connect a new skype account to the microsoft account

    The situation as a whole is very unbelievable that in 2021 Microsoft and skype is blocking professionals from the access to either change the skype name or delete and connect a new skype account to the microsoft account. This looks very unprofessional in the business world and locks people into their account with no means to change the account or create a new one if the information is incorrect. So someone is stuck with a skype name that was created 10 years ago to then microsoft merging with skype and makes it impossible to remove the skype account from the…

  8. Mute all participants microphones at once

    Please , if someone is the host in "Meet Now", it would be great to have the option to mute all participants at once until you want them to talk. It's annoying to give a speech or a class and to have particpants permanently turning on their microphones and interrupting.

  9. Quickly jump to date in chat

    It would be nice to be able to jump to a specific date in a chat or group chat instead of needing to scroll up really far.

  11. Fix Together Mode and Speaker View's weird bugs

    Thanks for the together mode but it has this weird thing that on a moderated group any general member activating together mode activating it for the entire meeting. I have 20/30 people in the conference and using white board. Any single one opening together mode messing up everyone's view mode. But this feature should be like view only for the person activating it right? as in MS Teams? Also the Speaker View gets stuck most of the time to a person whether s/he is speaking or not, which is very crazy in a conference situation. I am in a situation…

  12. Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work the way it should.

    Window share in Screen Share feature doesn't work properly. If shows some random gray boxes as well as with overlay windows as gray boxes too, although the window below is getting shared. This is weird that the same feature works perfectly on MSTeams but not on Skype. Please correct the layers. This is very important for my current presentation scenario.

  14. Ability to change name

    In the profile you have your "Name" and your "Skype Name". Currently we can change the Name but we can't change the Skype Name. Would it be possible to make it so we can change the Skype Name? I created my Skype Name years ago in the very beginning but now I hate the name and want to change it to my business name instead. And I can't just delete Skype and start a new account because it's so intertwined into my Microsoft account. So I always wish I could just change the Skype Name and be done with it.

  15. Ability to save the file regardless of the coincidence of the name with the open file

    The ability to save the file regardless of the coincidence of the name with the open file
    I ran into a problem to accept and save a file, provided that I already have a file with the same name open on my computer.
    I propose to consider the possibility of saving and accepting the file regardless of what is open in the system and used. Those. check if a file with the same name as you were sent to Skype already exists or open, then save a new file with the addition of the word "copy" or the time of…

  17. Change Skype ID

    Allow the option to change Skype ID just like Xbox Gamertags, they can be changed to anything and then autogenerated numbers are assigned after so the Skype ID can always be changed if it ever gets compromised by internet trolls.

    I currently can't use Skype because of this, I need to change my Skype ID to protect my personal information from the internet, and as a result I'm not able to buy minutes or a phone number for Skype if I can't use the account.

    I literally have money waiting for you, make the feature happen and it's yours.

  19. Deleting Skype account without having to delete Microsoft account. Also, could you please add changing the Skype name feature?

    Or, perhaps we could create multiple Skype accounts using the same Microsoft account?

    Thanks.
