  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/

    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 ;)

    - Petr

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Please add schedule a Message too.

    Idea is scheduling a Message for a certain time for a certain group or person so in case if you forget the message is automatically sent so we don't have to be worried.

  11. Text styles/colours/highlights

    That you can make text coloured in any colour and make text styles easier to use. also that you can highlight text

    Here are the ideas I would love to see:

    Idea 1:

    Put a B for bold, put a I for italic, put a U for underline and an S for strike.
    Put a highlighting button and choose what colour you want to highlight it with.
    Put a text colour thing and choose a colour.

    Idea 2:

    Use the & or § symbol to style/colour/highlight the text.

    e.g.
    §b/&b = bold
    §u/&u = underline
    §4/&4 = dark red
    §r/&r…

  12. Chocolate Emoticon is Highly Needed

    Chocolate is more than a piece of *********. Chocolate is sharing, happiness in life, pure love. Why don't we have a chocolate emoticon?! (chocolate)

  14. Make it optional for text faces such as :) to automatically change to the emoji version.

    When you are typing a face like :| or :) it changes it to the animated emoji version. It's kind of annoying because the original text faces are icon, fun, and well known, so it's weird when they change to something else. All of my friends and some acquaintances all agree with this, and think it would be a good feature to have a pop up option appear when typing the faces out. It could be optional, and would help correctly display the emotion that the user want to.

  15. Message read notification in chat when not online

    skype does not currently allow you to see if your message in the chat has been read, when the user who sent the message is in the state (offline eg invisible). My request would then be to see the read notification regardless of the state of the sender.

  18. Font settings please!

    The font is really difficult to read now. How do I change it to a readable one? I can't see the old font setting.

  19. An opportunity to see a draft message in all Skype instances at the same time

    Good day.

    Proposal:
    Could you please add an opportunity to see a draft message which has been inputted from different devices in all instances of the Skype at the same time ?
    An example: I input a draft massage via Skype on my mobile phone, I stop inputting (without sending). Then I open the Skype on my laptop and should see the draft message that has been inputted via my mobile phone.

    Current problem:
    Because now If I write a draft message in the Skype in my mobile phone I have to rewrite this message in the Skype in laptop.…

  20. can you make a 'recover all lost data' function?!

    It is so annoying that I might as well ask a gorilla to break my laptop.
