  11. Basic ability to rotate a profile picture.

    Why can I not rotate my profile picture? No matter how it has been saved and then uploaded, it always requires rotating to the right - even when my picture is upside down! This is not very professional when you are trying to create the right image in an interview.

  13. Please add a feature that allows Skype users to change their live name.

    I would love if Skype would add a feature that allows users to change their live name. Mine was assigned based off a 20 year old email address that is associated with my now ex-husband. It would be so wonderful if I could just change that live name, rather than having to create a new account and start over. Thank you for your consideration.

  17. profile

    I hope Skype will add 'story' just like the messenger and Instagram. So that for those students who are less expressive and shy, they can be confident by sharing things by posting. Students who studied online will not feel bored. Just saying

  18. Don’t show birthday option. Kills me interviewing because I’m too old

    Give me an option to not show my birth. It’s a detriment on some interviews. I’m old some don’t want to hire they legally can’t discriminate but if it in view it can hurt. I did try to clear it several times and save but it still shows

  19. More status options!

    Add more status options like in the old days.

    The statuses would be:
    Online (of course)
    Do Not Disturb
    Away
    Busy
    Invisible! I think it gives people a lot more options to express what they're doing. :D
