  1. 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/

    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 ;)

  2. 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.

  3. Bring back the **** react emoji

    I don't understand why it went? It is easily the most sensible reaction.

  5. Mute alternative messages in group chats

    Implementation of a new switch button 'Alternative notifications in chats' in Settings/Notifications. When someone leaves many group chats it creates spam messages like 'John Smith has left this conversation' etc. and moves up all these chats in a chats list. If the toggle is off, this notifications will not move such spam up in the list.

  9. Make a Skype sidebar in Edge, Word, Excel and other Microsoft apps

    Make a sidebar in Microsoft apps that we can chat on Skype, for example, have a sidebar in Edge so that we can chat while using the web and when we want to, add the link of the page that we are on. That way we can easily share links on Skype. In Word, Excel and other Microsoft apps put the same sidebar so that we can chat on Skype while working on a project and share the project that we are working on. One more thing to add to this is, make it so that we can make group…

  14. Lack of women emojis

    Why is it that in Skype there is only one woman emoji and she looks like she's standing angrily with her hands on her hips? The rest are dudes. Unless that's a girl underneath the ninja suit. Come on, Microsoft. You can do better.

  17. Exporting completing conversation to another file

    I wanted to store all messages in a conversation in one file. But Skype tells me to select each and every message individually which is impossible. Kindly provide me feature to select all messages. It would be even better if Skype provides feature to export the complete conversation in a file (pdf/word/excel/text file)

  19. Add a feature to Keep a Message/Poll pinned as Last Message showing in group chats. So anything Important can be available to see at first.

    Add a feature to Keep a Message/Poll pinned as Last Message showing in group chats. So anything Important can be available to see at first.
    Because when a poll is created, everyone is suppose to look at it till expiration time of Poll. Which will really help in managing something good/important.
