  2. 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 ;)

  4. Add salute emoji

    Please, add a salute emoji (like in armed forces).
    It will means kinda "order accepted" or "affirmative".
    Everyone who messaging about work with Skype lacks it incredibly.
    Thank you.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  9. Unlink Skype from microsoft or at least make live ID changable.

    Just scrolling through the first few pages of this forum I can see that this issue is brought up at least 10 different times in 10 different ways all of which have well over a combined 300 votes! This clearly needs to be a top priority.

    Personally, my current skype ID is the only reason I refuse to use this service. I need to be able to talk to coworkers and build professional relationships and I can't do that with an ID I made in middle school

  10. Skype Manager Buy method add skype personal account Credit

    Add skype Manager to purchase points in personal skype account.
    In this way, the exchange of credit points can be achieved.
    Achieve a great user experience.
    Let the points in your personal skype account support the purchase method of skype Manager.
    I hope you will adopt my suggestion, which is very convenient for users.
    Optional.
    The user experience will be great.

  13. please please PLEASE bring back the background it is not in the latest version and skype updates automatically so i cannot get it back :(

    every one knows about the background issue... In the new update that feature was deleted and now we can "share articles" with fellow skype users. I feel that should be part of skype business and the background option should still be available. as you all know, skype usually updates automatically so i am not able to get this feature back. PLEASE BRING IT BACK WHEN A NEW UPDATE IS AVAILABLE!

  14. Provide an option to change your username or ask for the username at the startup clearly

    At least provide an option to change your username (i know its not ideal) or ask for the username at the startup of creating profile clearly my username is cid.44a13ce71a and guess what how difficult is this you can have suggestions like ayazullahburki2020 or realayazullahburki etc. Now i am just trying to delete my skype account but its not possible you have to delete the whole microsoft account ...
