  5. 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 ;)

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  12. message sounds + ringtone sounds

    add sound to your app


    I think it would be great if you guys added the customizable ringtones back, im not sure why you removed them. and it would be AMAZING if you could enable / disable message sounds, and maybe even those sounds were customizable.

    i just want more sounds on this app, its so boring with literally the only sound being the notifications, ringtones, and your friend's voices. One more thing, imagine background sound, like ambience or calming music.

    Come on Microsoft! stick out from every other message program and give life to your app! for example, the…

  13. Ability to share screen with computer sound on Mac devices

    It would be really awesome if the Skype developers could implement the ability to share computer audio along with the screen share to Mac users, as windows users already have this feature. Especially in the current climate of the pandemic and lockdown, more people are inclined to watch movies and play games together. I know the popular app to use is Zoom nowadays, but personally, my partner and I have noticed Skype has been having better performance when it comes to screen share (less lag when watching videos, movies, etc). I hope they add this feature for Mac users one…

  16. 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.

  18. Deletion of Skype account without deleting MS Account.

    Allow user to delete their Skype Profile without it effecting their MS Live Account. This feature is very much needed for people especially as you (MS) have now introduced MS Teams as the next communications software.

    Give back choice and STOP forcing people to be signed up to things they do not want.

    I have had a Skype Account since before MS bought Skype...

    All was well until I created an MS Live account on a Windows 8 Laptop and was then given a new Skype account, then had the same thing happen when I got a new desktop with…

  19. 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.
