  1. Messages sync across all devices & platforms

    I wanted to view my chat history on my PC so I could more easily show my fiance.

    Expecting messages to sync from device to device cross platform was a no brainer... but guess not

    Looks like they are stored locally - c'mom guys, this isn't 2005

    Thanks

  2. skype number sms

    Skype Numbers need to be able to receive sms verifications from banks, retirement accounts, etc. Those who live and work overseass need to have a safe means to receive the verification sms messages and this is one reason why they purchase a Skype number. Most companies now require verification via sms to phone number, but if you are overseas, you need your Skype number to provide the sms no matter where you are.

  5. On using 'Unread from here' option, it should also be marked as unseen to the sender.

    On right click, when the sender chooses the option of 'Unread from here' it is marked as unread only for the viewer and not the sender of the message. It should also be marked as unread for the sender. I know it can be misleading. So this feature should only be available for a limited period of time. Let's say, I received a message and I viewed it by mistake and I don't want to let the other person know or want to reply afterwards with the confirmation that the other person does not feel ignored, I should be able…

  7. Add a feature to rearrange the order of emoji in Customize reactions option

    With the latest update of Skype, it is now possible to customize the emoji reaction, which is a cool feature. It would be better if we can rearrange the order of emoji reaction by simple drag and drop.

    As a workaround, currently, we can remove all the reactions and add the desired emoji one by one.

  9. Allow Import of chat into skype app for android. Save skype chat of longer duration say for a year or two.

    Allow import of skype desktop chat into the skype app. Every update brings problem for the user. Also save chats for year or two in your server in encrypted form for user or allow user to take back up.

  20. enregistrer une vidéo sans le son

    Enregistrer une vidéo skype sans son ... pour cela il suffirait d'ajouter un micro que l'on pourrait barrer comme pour les cams en direct ...
