  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 ;)

    - Petr

  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.

  4. 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.

  7. 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)

    :)

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Jump to date feature

    I have to constantly scroll back in chat history to recall/ reference information as Skype is used in our workplace as our messaging software. It would be nice if there was a jump to date feature in you chat window with someone so you could instantly go to any specific date you have messaged with another person you were talking with instead of having to strictly rely on the scrolling or find/ search feature.

  11. Lack of Color Emoji's

    HI - The thumbs up emoji is only white. It's a little awkward using that as it doesn't correspond with my actual skin tone. Why is the default hand WHITE?

  12. 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.

  13. Make it so that you can send things like :)

    This should have its own setting that makes it so that the shortcuts can be turned on and off.

  14. Bring back the **** react emoji

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

  15. Pesquisar uma mensagem no chat

    Não existe um input de pesquisa no chat que permita o usuário digitar um texto e localizar uma conversa, o usuário tem que rolar o scroll até encontra-la.

  16. 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.

  18. Select all message sent

    I found myself in a situation where a person could take few of my messages out of topic and use it against me violating my privacy. So I wanted to select all my sent messages to delete them. But there's no way. I got 2 years of conversation with this person, and by now I'm forced to select and delete all the messages one by one... it will take a whole life. Please could you add a way to delete all the messages all in once? Thank you.
