  2. colour of messages

    right now you can change the colour of one person's messages. it would be cool if you could change all the people's message colour so it's easier to see who said what

  4. Search message group by date/month like old version

    hi team,
    could you put back the search feature at conversion to show the date or month like the old version. it will be more easy instead of like now, I need to keep scrolling until the date or month I need to find. let say now is Mar 2020, I want to looking for my conversion on January 2020, after I put keyword, but that key word repeat many times. it will great if can group and show like before.
    thank you

  7. Text Formatting

    Would be great to be able to format texts. Bold, italics, underline and even changing color to add emphasis.

  8. Conversation chat history automatically saves to your email's Conversation History folder for mobile devices

    When we find after we delete conversations or block contacts due to scammers, the history is not saved to Conversation History folder where people use the mobile app. Can this be done? so we can see our history. It's mainly so we can look back at what scammers have sent us & can use it to report it. This works for those on hotmail or outlook. Skype for business has this functionality on PC already. Why not the normal mobile app?

  10. Deleting all the chats at once

    Hi Team,

    I request you to please add the most celebrated missing feature "Select All" & "Delete" chats option on the Skype Application.

    By adding this feature it will save our time of selecting each chat and then delete

    Hope you understand and implement this feature so that it can be more user friendly for us to use your application.

  12. No borren los chats de grupo

    Los chats de grupo no se deberian borrar si te sacan, y siendo el administrador no deberian poder sacarte, deberia quedar un historial de la conversación hasta donde estabas dentro del grupo

  15. ANTI-SPAM SKYPE ISSUES

    Hi. I sent 100 messages to my contacts. Poeple who are in my contacts want to get this message. They intentionally are in my contacts to receive these messages. But your skype system probably marked it as spam. Which is obviously not! Do something with it. We use Skype to make sure that our messages can reach people. We are not interested in your spam system.

  18. YouTube Link Previews

    YouTube Link previews used to be a thing and in my opinion are one of the most important features, since I use Skype to share YT videos and music from YouTube daily. I don't get why this is so frequently removed (I have seen it leave and come back many times, but it has been gone for months at this point with no return in sight) and have never understood it. If this is a YouTube problem, this request in pretty pointless, but in the case that it is a Skype problem, this needs to be changed ASAP

  19. Shrug emoji!!

    Shrug emoji: We desperately need a shrug emoji added to the skype messaging platform. I often find the desire to express myself when at a loss for words, via a shrug. I think we would all enjoy watching a little emoji's shoulders shrug.

  20. Traanslator

    My idea is that you fix the translator. It worked fine for maybe 3 days untillast Monday then and now it is totally unreliable. Sometimes it works for one or maybe 2 messages then stops completely, maybe only on one side of the conversation but it still destroys communication. I was about to write and thank you for fixing it but with hindsight that would have been sadly premature. As it worked well over the weekend it would seem that you had fixed it, iobviously not, please go back and fix it again or retrace any steps taken since which…
