  2. priority

    I would like to be able to mark certain chat messages as priority for faster search later. The other option would be being able to change the background color of those priority messages for faster scanning of things that are important.

    For business use, these would be great enhancements.

  3. Sort messages by time on mobile

    Being able to view past message history on mobile is much more accessible for those of us who work off mobile devices and not desktops.

  7. Make Texting / SMS Worth Using

    I do not know why anyone would pay so much to be able to send texts / SMS to mobile phones. There must be more to it that I do not understand. It would seem to me that if texting cost nothing or would be part of a subscription plan that Skype would have many more users.

    When will Microsoft have something to report regarding the fact that translator does not work. I have lost track of the number of times i have reported it as a problem via Skype settings. There is never any response not ever any improvement. It is over 2 months since Msoft announced it would be introduced and from the actual introduction date it has never worked reliably.

    It is beyond comprehension that they are not aware of the fact and should have some idea of the disruption and inconvenience, sometimes distress, it causes Skype users . They still say nothing.

  14. automatic notifications

    Hello I would like to suggest automatic notifications. This feature would be great to put a general reply message when you are away from Skype. Example would be a vacation notice or out of office reply.

  19. Allow sending, receiving, and rendering of Rich Text Format (RTF) in messaging

    Allow sending, receiving, and rendering of Rich Text Format (RTF) in messaging, or HTTP would be ok, with option to use or not, like Outlook e-mails.
