  1. Here is a Bug in your Message Box

    A conversation between two person or in a group amoung all members can be editable for a time of period
    Like in other chat apps(e.g whatsapp) you can delete send message untill a fixed time if the sender deletes any message the reciever will get a message deleted notification in notification bar
    But In Skype this thing is just reverse.
    A sender can edit and change the content of message any time and it will be render on the reciever side without any notification.
    This will lead the conflits in conversation, one can change their old send messages without any…

  2. Tag multiple contacts at once

    Imagine there are 20+ contacts in group chat and we have to Tag only 6 contacts every time! So, rather than @mentioning those 6 contact names one-by-one every time, need an option to make a Team or Group of those 6 contacts. So we can tag and notify them in just single @mention.

    • We can add this feature in "Contact" menu. so anyone can create and manage there own personal Team or groups of contact
    • Need an option to create as many Teams or groups we want.
    • We can rename the Team/group
    • We can add or remove users from the…

  4. Text styles/colours/highlights

    That you can make text coloured in any colour and make text styles easier to use. also that you can highlight text

    Here are the ideas I would love to see:

    Idea 1:

    Put a B for bold, put a I for italic, put a U for underline and an S for strike.
    Put a highlighting button and choose what colour you want to highlight it with.
    Put a text colour thing and choose a colour.

    Idea 2:

    Use the & or § symbol to style/colour/highlight the text.

    e.g.
    §b/&b = bold
    §u/&u = underline
    §4/&4 = dark red
    §r/&r…

  7. Add "toggle read receipts " keyboard shortcut

    It would be very helpful to be able to easily toggle the "read receipts" using a few key strokes instead of having to access the cumbersome settings window.

  10. Message read notification in chat when not online

    skype does not currently allow you to see if your message in the chat has been read, when the user who sent the message is in the state (offline eg invisible). My request would then be to see the read notification regardless of the state of the sender.

  13. An opportunity to see a draft message in all Skype instances at the same time

    Good day.

    Proposal:
    Could you please add an opportunity to see a draft message which has been inputted from different devices in all instances of the Skype at the same time ?
    An example: I input a draft massage via Skype on my mobile phone, I stop inputting (without sending). Then I open the Skype on my laptop and should see the draft message that has been inputted via my mobile phone.

    Current problem:
    Because now If I write a draft message in the Skype in my mobile phone I have to rewrite this message in the Skype in laptop.…

  15. To add a GIF repliying feature to a text msg.

    while using skype for a long time, i found a query that in a text msg we have an option to quote other's msg but the quotation is only be replied in a text. i just want you to look into the matter if u add a feature of replying the text msg with GIF file also so it is more creative and joyful thing to enjoy a skype chat with friends. an i might think that this feature will attract more audience to skype app.

  16. Please make it so that you can turn OFF the frigging emoticon shortcuts in chat

    Those of us who need to chat about CODE need to be able to type (*) without it turning into a cute spinning star--which is aggravating! I don't want to have to turn OFF emoticons entirely--I just don't want SKYPE to think it knows I'm typing a STUPID emoticon shortcut!!!!!!!! Most annoying thing EVER.

  17. Network carriers

    Make it possible to use network carrier that we have to the Phones/Computers so we can use Skype to get sms or make call on the Phone/Computer without subscription when it's connected to a simcard that's support calls and messages.

  18. Please revive the Ruuh chatbot

    Ruuh was an advanced chatbot which will prove to be very beneficial for humanity. Microsoft suddenly suspended it without explanation and I request it to revive the project in greater interest and public demand. It is a low maintenance Project that was available via Ruuh.ai website, Skype and Facebook messenger.

  19. المراسلة

    I hope that Skype will be like this very soon, and that there will be an opportunity to add only three or four accounts as a maximum, as is the case with Twitter.
