  2. Option to pin a message on top of the conversation in the skype groups

    Hi,

    Some skype groups are really busy with continuous messages, so there is a possibility of missing to read important messages for the group members.

    As a solution to overcome the issue - It would be great if we can have an option to pin a message on top of the conversation in the skype groups.

    Thank you !

  3. Leave Message

    Users should have an option to set up auto-reply message, when they are away from Skype. It should work like auto-reply mail. User should be able to enable it by writing his/her message whenever it is required.

  5. clear conversation history is a basic feature, and a very helpful one that is not there... maybe making it like snapchat where it goes away

  6. 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 ;)

  10. Real time texting

    A feature that allows for real time texting, i.e. the receiver sees what the sender is typing in real time without pressing the send button, is a major improvement in real time communication. This is a service that has become compulsory for all new phones, and it would be a great feature on Skype. It would be a highly attractive feature for the hard of hearing/speech impaired community, which would be more inclined to use Skype. Many thanks for your consideration.

  14. Link to Azure Devops - Work Items

    Maybe via messages part or add in "My Tasks" feature, or open on Skype windows the details about specific work items rather than opening separately in browser

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Basic feature

    Add a feature :- Feature to select multiple messages at once

    When you want to forward more than one message to someone, Skype does not allow you to select multiple messages at once, you have to select them one by one which is very annoying and time consuming. Please provide this basic feature in your next update. Thanks

  19. split view refresh

    Bug: Desktop client, Windows, current version (8.75.0.140): in Split mode, some conversations stop refreshing after some time – I don't see both new incomming messages or my new messages. I can see them only in main (list) window. WA: close window & open again.
