  1. Add salute emoji

    Please, add a salute emoji (like in armed forces).
    It will means kinda "order accepted" or "affirmative".
    Everyone who messaging about work with Skype lacks it incredibly.
    Thank you.

  2. Delete messages and audio clips sent from others regardless of the device they use and the type of account they have

    The Skype team should add a feature for us to delete any message, audio clip, picture, etc., that other people send us from any of their accounts whether or not it's a mobile account, tablet, or PC

  3. guardar chat

    Es increible que algo tan sencillo como poder guardar, o más bien, exportar cualquier conversación de Skype a texto u otros no sea actualmente posible. Aquellos que usamos esta herramienta tanto a nivel personal como particular, necesitamos poder guardar nuestras conversaciones para, como sucede en muchas ocasiones, realizar archivos de texto, poder imprimirlas o compartirlas con terceros.....además de lo complicado que resulta tanto en el pc cómo en la app retroceder en cualquier chat, tarda muchisimo y a veces, es simplemente imposible.....son errores de desarrollo incomprensibles que ninguna herramienta de la competencia tiene. Skype espabila!!

  6. Turn of text to emoticons

    I'd like to be able to turn off text to emoticons/emojis. They can get pretty annoying when all I'm trying to say is "Yes" or "No."

  8. Gallery

    The gallery only shows pictures, links and files. Why not videos? It doesn't make any sense as the videos are there in the conversation if you scroll up but there's no way to find them in the gallery

  9. Bulk Delete Messages in Group and Regular One-One Chats for Both Parties/All Involved

    Soo, it would really be helpful that for both Group Chats (wether its just two people or more) and for regualr Skype Chats, that there be an Option of Deleting Messages for both users, it cumbersome to go and tell the other person go to this Date and delete this part of the Thread cause now there's no flow in the conversation. More importantly, they should be deleted on both users Accounts instead of havin to do double work. It sucks that on Group Chat it will not let me toggle Chat History and Share Link on and I'm the…

  10. Option to block emotions, GIFs, file attachments etc.

    When we create a group and start chatting, group owner should be able to block emotions, GIFs, file attachments etc. so participants can concentrate on the call.
    Even blocking texting might be a good option to have.

  12. Bring back the **** react emoji

    I don't understand why it went? It is easily the most sensible reaction.

  14. Bundle chats into categories e.g. work, friends, clients, etc.

    Would be great to bundle chats into categories e.g. work, friends, clients, etc. so i can easily see which chats are for who.

  16. Favorite a Chat(s)

    Dear Skype Team,

    It would be nice to have a feature where you are able to favorite a chat or chats so that they remain at the top for easier access, despite newer messages/activity in other chats (instead of having to search for it).

    Thank you,

    A User

  17. Provide us a status tab of downloading stuffs

    Hi Skype team,
    I am trying to download all recording videos from one of my conversation. The thing is I do not know whether the file is downloading or not. I think it would be a great help if you develop a status bar or anything which helps me track my downloading.
    Thank you very much!
