Add Tool to DELETE SELECTED/or ALL HISTORY of CALLS and CHATS
Necessary TOOL addition to SETUP
Thank you all for your comments and votes around this topic. We definitely understand the need here so it’s on our backlog now. I’ll let you know if anything changes.
1) It makes life miserable that I couldn't delete the call history by selecting a dialed number - if by mistake I dialed a mobile number, to a wrong person, I can never delete the same. And by mistake I had called them again and again embarrassing both. Skype shall come out with an update for this.
2. Even when you select a contract from the list and dial (I am using international calling by subscription) still it would show as number only on the android.
Probably, Microsoft war with Google is going to never end and these updates you would never provide to your users.
When will this be added? I have used skype since 2005, and am sorry to see the setting go where you can choose to keep (or how long to keep) you chat conversations. I have thousands (since 2015) showing up on my skype when i open it, and it is making it take forever to load!! Been 2 years now since you replied to this, so get on the move, please!
Hi, this is 2020 speaking. I'd still really love this functionality to be added to Skype. Kind regards,
the year 2020

well over a year since you responded to this. some people like myself have been using this joke of a call service for well over 5 years and have accumulated hundreds if not thousands of calls and chats. i dont know what your schedules are looking like but instead of updating ****** things like text colors and dumb knock off looking emojis do all of your loyal users and customers a favor and actually listen to us for once. Your inability to act on what the consumer needs is why people have been moving away from this ****** service and going elsewhere. so much for listening to our comments and votes. please consider pulling your heads out of your *****. please and thank you. sincerely, someone whos put up with your **** for years (:
Me and my classmates 100+ are all currently using snapchat to send text instead of skype. I like Skype better but Snapchat will auto delete all my chat history after viewing or i can set it to 24 hours until Skype has a similar option me and all my friends wont use Skpye. Its an easy fix Skype get with the program. its 2019.

It has been at least 18 months since you have had it "on the backlog". It should be an easy thing to add a delete call history feature. Wha t is taking you so long?
Any news about the upgrade to perform the delete of a phone call or chat on Android or PC?
we really use this in our company

It's now nearly 8 months from your last message Petr. Where is the udpate to bring this much needed security feature?
It's 2019, security and privacy are the BIG thing and this option still doesn't exist.
Are you still busy mining the data?
It is extremely tedious to individually delete every old contact and every chat or call that came in. Especially since so many are scam calls! This is so twentieth century!
it is sad because this used to be a setting
Icon Button added to Skype to delete all past chat calls; doing this individually makes no sense in the era of IT
Bring back the History options! Allow the user to delete their chat history every 2 weeks, immediately, or keep it forever. This is an ORIGINAL feature which was removed in one the last few updates. Its STANDARD in any chat program to have a history feature. Thank you.
Add this please
Not using Skype anymore because of this.
Here another friendly bump. Feature sorely missed.
Bump! hey we still need this.
OK, so this 'idea' is 8 months old now and still nothing?!?
I believe Skype used to have this feature. Would like to delete conversation history. Thanks

I would like to be able to absolutely clear my search history please ! I do not need to be reminded of who I searched for one night long ago on a whim !!!
Delete call history for chat AND calls is an essential function which is not available in Skype 8 anymore. Please bring add a tool for deleting chat and call history.
The Skype 8 desktop app became a complete mess. We no need smart phone style apps on a desktop! Or do you guys at windows want us all to get rid of Windows desktop PC's and use smart phones instead?
