  3. Fondo Pantalla

    En estos tiempo de Covid-19 Skype será el reemplazo de la reuniones principales.

    Sugiero incluir fondos de pantallas de fondos temáticos para hacer más amigables esas reuniones. Por ejemplo simular que estoy en una cafetería, en un ambiente laboral, etc.

    Ya que pueden difumar el fondo de pantalla quiere decir que lo pueden independizar de la imagen principal, el usuario, con lo cual puden cambiarlo por na temática en especial

    Saludos

  4. Change other people's profile picture on Skype (only you can see)

    Some people on skype's profiles are hard to tell apart or something so it would be nice to be able to change other's profiles but only you can see it. Changing them can also help you remember who is who.

  7. Edit Usernames Please!

    I don't want my username to be after my first registered email username... I really would like to change it, and I bet many others would like to change theirs too. Please add this feature!

  9. An invitation link through which a Skype user can directly connect to us on our Skype messenger should be valid for permanent basis

    An invitation link through which a Skype user can directly connect to us on our Skype messenger should be valid for permanent basis so that our visitor on the website can directly connect with us on skype with just a single click.

    I come to know from your customer support agent that link to share our profile which we get from share and connect option is valid for 24 hours only.

    To copy the name and find in skype is look hard compare to the one-click option. Isn't?

  11. Thumbnail Adjustability

    Allow users to adjust the thumbnail of their profile picture like every other social media does. This should have been a feature that was available since day one. Having a profile picture showing all the wrong portions in the thumbnail appears sloppy and completely unprofessional - This goes double for people using Skype For Business.

  12. Changing shown name (not username)

    I don't want to change my username, only my shown name. I have completely different name on my MS account and Hotmail. It is just few lines of code. Why is this so hard for your programmers? It is known issue for years now.

  14. Add current time and timezone

    I'd like to show local time of user in my contact list. I am attaching screenshot - https://prnt.sc/qzncde .
    You can easy understand what I'd like to say. It's so simple and you can add it in skype. It's small feature but It's help a lot. I have to check client's time on google each time.

    One more if you can do. On click client's time, it show differences of both time and if we want to calculate then give there calendar with time to easy calculate time difference.

  18. Birthday Notifications

    Hello, in the past you had birthday notifications in the contact list and the system messaged you when a friend has a birthday. You stopped this some time ago and I also reported the issue over a year ago and it still didn’t get fixed. I’m hoping you can fix this feature so it’s available again, thanks.

  20. Make it available to change your skype name from one name to another? Could we do this?

    This change would make available the ability to change your Skype name from an old one to a new one. All that you might need is a confirmation sent out to the email of the person trying to change their Skype name.
