  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 ;)

  3. Retain all chat history locally (regardless of the cloud), like Skype 7

    Skype 8 should retain chat history locally in ADDITION to the cloud, which stores only 2 years of it. It not doing this now means that eventually older history will "scroll off" the cloud, gone forever. All history should (optionally) be stored locally, like in earlier versions of Skype.

    And merely letting us export (which Skype 8 also doesn't do for its OWN history, as opposed to Skype 7's history) isn't a sufficient solution, since having a bunch of export files around is hardly an efficient way to find an old message.

    We hear you  ·  Erin at Skype responded

    We hear your feedback and are looking into options to make sure you can more easily access your history in Skype.

    In the mean time you can use Export Chat History in settings to export your Skype 7 conversations on your computer. From there you can open the conversations in a browser and search using the browser search command.

    We have been listening to your feedback. In 8.33+ you can see all the results found for your message search. No more 20 limit.

    We’re still working on a solution for the 6 months limitation. I’ll post an update when it’s available.

  5. Deleting all the chats at once

    Hi Team,

    I request you to please add the most celebrated missing feature "Select All" & "Delete" chats option on the Skype Application.

    By adding this feature it will save our time of selecting each chat and then delete

    Hope you understand and implement this feature so that it can be more user friendly for us to use your application.

  11. Kosovo flag

    Since Republic of Kosovo is an independent country since 2008 and it is recognized widely by most powerful countries. I think Skype should add the Kosovo flag in chat (flag:ks) or (flag:rks), since every other independent country has its own flag there. This will be well appreciated from all Skype users in Kosovo, where so many of them use Skype in daily basis. So, I hope in your understanding and see the flag of Republic of Kosovo soon in the Skype chat.
    Thank you in advance.

  15. Shrug emoji!!

    Shrug emoji: We desperately need a shrug emoji added to the skype messaging platform. I often find the desire to express myself when at a loss for words, via a shrug. I think we would all enjoy watching a little emoji's shoulders shrug.

  16. Controllable Volume and Choosable sound from a file on my computer for Notification of New SMS Messages received

    I have a hard time knowing when I receive a SMS message from a contact. It would be great if I could choose from a file on my computer, a sound byte to notify me of a new message, and have the ability to control sound volume. Also, the ability to actuate a Popup Notice would also be good as part of this Control Feature for Notification of Messages.

  17. Skype Chat Commands

    In the early versions of Skype, such teams worked in chats, which are presented on this site

    http://www.skaip.su/komandy-v-chate-skayp

    It was possible to assign separate roles to different chat participants, delete messages of the interlocutor, and so on. These features are currently not available. Can they be returned back?
