  2. Be able to set an urgent level to a message.

    Be able to set an urgent level to any message. When you're in a hurry, people will be able to set an urgent level telling him/her any important message, or just a random message.

  5. Emojis

    Hello,

    For some unknown reason I have rainbow emojis (reactions) instead of normal ones, please fix that bug. I cannot change those things back like before because that small button to edit emojis is missing.

  6. New colours on messages and some changes

    So i am thinking of adding new features on the chat. So in the chat you get to pick a colour and then you can pick if the colour that you have in your messages is from your side or form the other's person side. My idea is that, you can update skype and add the idea that you can pick your messages a colour and the other's person messages a colour. So you and the people that you are chatting can have 2 colours from your device. Now I am thinking of adding more colours on the chat. Like…

  9. Give settings option to disable emoticons automatically turning into skype emojis

    I don't want emoticons like ":)" to turn into skype emojis it doesn't give the same vibe. skype emojis have their own time and place.

  10. Pin message and Chat highlights feature in group chats

    Pin Message:
    In group chats lots of message are sent and incase of meeting or some talks, important notes and messages are hidden,takes time to scroll and go through every message

    OR

    Chat Highlights:
    Something like bookmarking messages in group chat so that all can review the group chat highlights when unable to attend meetings or group chat session

  13. Add feature to completely and permanently delete private messages..

    Add feature to completely and permanently delete hidden chats/ private messages.. now it just deletes the text inside the private conversation so still anyone can see who you spoke to on what date. Seems just a simple issue to resolve but now there is nothing private about it..

  14. Users would benefit from being able to retrieve messages that were sent over 30 days ago. Allow us to download chats from 5+ years ago.

    Allow users to be able to find any messages that were sent regardless of any length of time that has passed. Not being able to view older messages is a very big negative and many users would love to be able to see the old messages/chats that they had. Give us the option to download our past chat history.

  16. Please add schedule a Message too.

    Idea is scheduling a Message for a certain time for a certain group or person so in case if you forget the message is automatically sent so we don't have to be worried.

  18. Select all message sent

    I found myself in a situation where a person could take few of my messages out of topic and use it against me violating my privacy. So I wanted to select all my sent messages to delete them. But there's no way. I got 2 years of conversation with this person, and by now I'm forced to select and delete all the messages one by one... it will take a whole life. Please could you add a way to delete all the messages all in once? Thank you.

  19. PUHLEASE let us disable emoji convert

    i can’t explain the amount of times i’ve been disappointed because my “<3” or “:)” turned into some emoji i did not ask for. just like the older versions of skype we should be able to disable this feature.
