  2. Link correct Skype account with Microsoft account

    Allow linking original Skype (pre-Microsoft) with Microsoft account. I have a duplicate Skype account that I do not use linked to my MS account. I would very much like to link my correct Skype to my correct MS account. Add Skype account and replace. Doesn't have to delete, but should unlink.

    Also be able to change pre-MS Skype Name.

  3. Status

    I try to keep my status on invisible, but Skype resets me all the time to "available" That sort of defeats the purpose of asking if I want to remain invisible.

  5. Status switching itself from "Invisible" to "Active"

    Whenever I set my status "Invisible", It occasionally changes to "Active" online status itself. Even I am logged in and while using Skype, status changes to visible. It is really annoying. I want Skype to keep my status preferences and Save it. It is kind of Bug. Please consider this feedback and improve Status Settings!

  6. Ruolo amministratore per chat di gruppo - Managing role for group chat

    Sarebbe interessante poter scegliere se la chat di gruppo abbia un'amministratore (che sia l'unico che possa avviare la chiamata e che una volta che decida di chiuderla per tutti, nessun altro possa rientrarci) - It would be interesting to be able to choose if the group chat has an administrator (who is the only one who can start the call and that once he decides to close it for all, no one else can return it)

  10. This is about privacy

    I would like the function with privacy that can block the other party being able to start a recording at all. I know we can see if its being recorded but i would like the option of being able to block it in the first place. Many of us need skype more than ever and privacy is paramount. IF this can happen ASAP please

  11. Status changing by itself often

    Hello,
    I have updated to your new update the other day and the issue I have reported many times is still happening. Under no circumstances should the status change from “Invisible” to “Online” without the account holder doing it themselves. Please fix this bug so the status won’t change for any reason. Thanks

  14. Change Skype Name

    I created my Skype name long ago which includes my full name. As such, I do not provide my Skype name when people ask to add me on Skype. Instead I am forced to give out my email address (which I was just informed by a chat support agent is also considered personal information... tho i personally find my full name to be a bit more personal). I was informed there hasn’t been a way to change this since 2016. I find this to be a bit concerning and quite a security/privacy risk/issue.

  16. Please create an option for deleting the search history in skype for names searched to not pop-up for privacy issues, thank you.

    This option will let our private searched or contacted person be hidden and not to be found out just by looking into the search results even after the chat and call history is deleted.

  17. Permanently removing all aspects of unwanted contacts

    Despite blocking someone, or removing them from the view list, many would benefit from an optional feature allowing you to remove a contact from all areas of the platform. Currently when you completely remove someone they still appear when you click in the search bar under the people list. Being able to make it as if your account had never associated with another due to personal reasons would be greatly appreciated.
