  2. Update Required for Profile Image Help Topic

    Please correct the help topic telling people how to update their profile picture via desktop that they need to do it via web.skype.com, not the regular "edit profile" area. This would have saved me about an hour on chat to a support person who didn't even think to ask where I was updating the profile picture until the very end. The staff member told me to post here, though I don't know why. The help topic should just be corrected. Simple.

  8. I cancelled my Skype afternoon using it for about 10 years. How do I know that I no longer have an account? There has been no

    I have cancelled my account but have had no feedback from Skype acknowledging it received my request and cancelled the account. Is it policy to respond? If not, how do I know I succeeded?

  12. Merge accounts

    Bring back the possibility to merge accounts. I had a skype address. Now I have a MS account and another Skype address linked to it. It would be nice to be capable of merging them. This function is not available now, I will have to delete one of my accounts, lose some contact.

  14. Use bot to detect spam, but use humans to determine if it is a human or a bot sending spam messages. ignore if human sends tons of messages

    Use bot to detect spam, but use humans to determine if it is a human or a bot sending spam messages. ignore if human sends tons of youtube and pixiv links
    Because my account got tagged as a spammer some how. Looks like you cant send messages anymore with photos and links anymore. Hate using discord. Please fix this issue. its a trend on twitter now

  16. Unlinking Skype from Microsoft or but transferring to another Microsoft account

    Is it technically impossible to unlink Skype account form Microsoft account, or ist it just an unwillingess of Microsft to do that. Many of us have the same issue and my opinion is that Microsoft is dooing nothing.

  17. sign in

    Please make the sign in procedure easier simpler and faster. Especially when you re using the app from abroad. ( far away from your home address). Stop these double triple etc. verification procedures through questions that you might not even remember at the time.
    Its a total waste of time and you should look at it.

  19. Bring back conversations from 2012 onwards

    Hi.
    I would really like to know if I could have access to messages I had with a Skype contact in 2012/2013. I recently logged back into my account since then and all the messages were gone.
    It would mean the absolute world to me if I had access to the old conversations. Thank you

  20. Delink skype and microsoft account

    Forcing people to (1) have a new Skype account randomly generated by your AI if they accidentally click a link or try to open their own Skype accounts from a new device, and then (2) agree to cancel their outlook accounts and all associated services to include their emails and real Skype accounts as punishment for wanting to get rid of the 'bogus' account. This is criminal behavior akin to technological blackmail. Who at Microsoft thought this was a good idea? It's a terrible idea and now there is a junk Skype account with my name of it that I…
