  4. Ability to change you Skype name

    It would be really great and useful if there is an option to update/change your Skype name. I am reluctant in giving away my current Skype and joining calls with it, because my Skype name is visible, thus making me not use Skype as much as i would like. Creating a new account would require a new email and a new phone number, which is not an option.
    I would really appreciate if I had the option to change my Skype name (one time would be enough).

  8. Skype Names Must Become Modifiable for Old Accounts

    It is dangerous for some people (e.g., transgender) to have their real name included in their Skype Name. Please, allow us to have our Skype Names changed to a RANDOM string of letters and numbers instead. You have already been doing this to the more recent account creators.

  10. Sign Out on All Devices

    Most other social medias have a way of signing out on every device, preventing potential fraud from lost devices.

  13. Music status

    Like to where we can connect our Spotify accounts to our Skype accounts, if we do so people can see what we listen too (take a look at discord!) Me and my partner used that as a way to see how the other is feeling but since we’re limited to Skype at the moment we cant do that and it kinda sucks. Please take this into consideration it would really help!

  17. Change Skype ID

    Allow the option to change Skype ID just like Xbox Gamertags, they can be changed to anything and then autogenerated numbers are assigned after so the Skype ID can always be changed if it ever gets compromised by internet trolls.

    I currently can't use Skype because of this, I need to change my Skype ID to protect my personal information from the internet, and as a result I'm not able to buy minutes or a phone number for Skype if I can't use the account.

    I literally have money waiting for you, make the feature happen and it's yours.

  18. Allow nicknames or additonal name for self

    Allow additional name for self as some people have used undesirable name in microsoft account so it gets transferred to Skype name . So friends can more easily find them in Skype.

  20. Not able to set up account with custom Skype ID

    I'm really bummed out that I can't create an account for my internet biz/inc. The system just autogenerates a long live skype ID profile which isn't option for my business. I'm forced to find a different chat option. Skype should go back to pre migration days and allows custom Skype IDs.
