  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. ****

    Please return the reaction and emoji "Pile of poo" - ie (****) - it is essential for communication.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Please add a feature to show that sent message is delivered.

    Please add a feature to show that sent message is delivered.
    Right now, we don't know if the message is delivered to user or not. we only that when user see the message and an icon appears under message.
    but it would be great if you can add an icon to show that message is delivered but not seen yet.

  14. Bitmojis

    Bitmojis...no idea why skype isn’t allowing users to send bitmojis to others. They have a billion ugly emoji choices but can’t even let bitmojis. They provide such a great service and should be allowed. It’s 2020 and I think it’s about time skype got on board with bitmojis. Thanks. Plz vote so we can get this going. #Bitmojis2020

  15. If we have a schedule messaging option there, it would be much better.

    If we have a schedule messaging option there, it would be much better. We can send a message to our contact(s) even when we are not active or when we are physically away form our device. Thank you and kindly consider my though in near future.
