  3. You have to enable paste images directly in skype chat window

    In the past, I was able to past images that are in my Windows clipboard directly into Skype chat, that was convenient.

    Now I can't do that, and I have to save the image as file and send it as extensions. This is inconvenient.

  5. Statistics

    So it would be really nice if there was a way to view the stats you have on a thread. Stuff like average messages sent a day, (by whom too if possible), what the total amount of messages sent within a chat are, stuff like that. idk if I'm the only one but I love looking at stats like that.

  8. SUPERMUM

    The female super hero emoticon is called SuperMum whilst the male one is called Man Superhero. Either make them both about their roles as parents, or call the female one 'Female Superhero'

    Assistance in the case when the user sends a SMS message to a phone number, but the owner of that number does not receive it - although number is correct.

  13. Offer variety of alert tones for incoming messages

    The tone that is used for my incoming messages on Skype is so soft that it’s almost impossible to hear if you’re not in the room. It would be great to have some options for different tones that are louder.

  14. Hi, I would like to see the time and date for each message In Skype, not just at the top of the thread.

    Hi, I would like to see the time and date for each message In Skype, not just at the top of the thread. How do I arrange for that?

    I am referring to this specifically for when I am messaging back and forth for group chat and one to one messaging in Skype.

    I am on a Mac but I don't think that should matter.

    Here is a screen shot...and as you can see I only see the name of the Skype user and the time.

    Again, I don't want to have to scroll all the way up to see…

  16. Search filter via date in chat history

    Hi,

    I think there should be a Search filter via date in chat history available somewhere. When the user tries to scroll up for viewing chat history.

    Thanks,
    Yogendra kumar

  18. Locally Export Chat

    Just a button next to the chat would do, or even a toggle option to automatically have messages saved locally to the pc, regardless of the cloud. Or even easier, just give people the option to select all, copy and paste to a document. Even that would be fine. The cloud is unreliable and inconvenient for anyone trying to access a couple of messages from a few months ago.

  19. Please allow us to reorganize the order of custom reactions in Messaging!

    I love the custom reactions in Messaging, but please allow us to change the order that the reactions appear. Possibly by drag and dropping?
