Saving All Chat History From Beginning To Now *&* Moving Forward, W/ The Ability To View Chat History Like Before.
It is very important for many of us to be able to continue to have our chat history on Skype from the beginning to now and moving forward.. Along with the option to view history, like we did on Skype V7, by going to "Conversation" and "View History". This would allow us to go back where we needed, without going at a snail's pace. Whether that be going to the very beginning, a year, or a month. This was very efficient and helpful. Thank you.
So to be honest, i haven't been using Skype for a long time. And just remembered an old friend whom i lost contact with. I'm trying to reconnect with the person and the only information I had of him was probably on Skype. Logged back in to Skype after a really long time and realised all my old chat history disappeared. Not too happy about it - like what some of the people said below, chat history no matter how long ago, is probably the most important thing for a user. If i didn't want to have the history of a conversation I would delete it. But I would assume no one, especially the platform, would delete my conversations T.T I mean, who exports these things these days. Where do I keep them? That's why I use a platform to help me remember and store them right?
Why the **** did you take this feature off - its insane!!
Millions just gave up using Skype, because you forgot the most important thing for a users - a chat history.
revisit old conversations and do a search.
I've been using skype for years and I had a lot of chats I made that I wanted to be able to reread, and steadily lost them because they keep getting automatically deleted and cleared whenever the slightest fricking inconvenience pops up. An update? Gone. Didn't touch it for more than a few days? Gone. On top of that, I lost a LOT from the two times my computer wound up getting completely wiped, and I was excited when I heard that you could retrieve all of your chat history, quickly and easily. Had to download a different version of skype because mine didn't have a tools bar, so didn't have the feature. And when I did that...nothing! I have nothing! Because all records of my chats have been wiped from my computer for things out of my control. It's stupid! Discord doesn't have this ******* issue, why does skype???

I agree. I want to be able to see my old conversations with all my friends.

In the newest version of Skype, you can't access conversations from older than a year ago. My favourite thing to do on Skype was look through my old conversations with friends, screenshot them to bring up old memories and the like. I can't do that at all anymore, and it makes me really sad that those memories are now essentially lost.
Please bring back the conversation tab, being able to go back to the beginning of a conversation or a specific date. It can be really important to those who have old information they need to find, or old memories they just want to sift through.
Add a way to get old chat history which has now been deleted from skype.
