  3. Integrate incoming Skype chat message with other MS applications

    It would be nice to have notifications like "2 unread messages" in popup form, integrated with IE, Edge, Outlook, Office, Sharepoint, Visio, 365 etc. So that if a user is working in any MS application, can take note of an incoming Skype chat message.

  4. Pop Out Video Feed

    PopOut stays out regardless of where you're typing so you can make the convo window smaller, its disappearing acting is beyond annoying because the new update makes the window too large and multitasking impossible

  5. Give the access to copy message when its shown in desktop pop-up

    when we received the message then first it shows in the pop-up for some time. That message should get copied. so there is no need to in the app and copy it.

  9. Make possible to give yourself a "nickname" in each chat rooms

    My situation: I am in a group chat with 50 people. We are playing an online game. In this game we have different usernames. But when we are using Skype we are confused, because we don't know which person belongs to which username.

    The soulution would be simple: make users possible to give themselves a "nickname" in these rooms. In this way you would have the chance to have e.g. two different nickname in two different chat room.

    It would be useful, because almost every person is called in a different way by his/her family and friends.

  10. Skype for Chromebooks.

    Us students use our Chromebooks daily for school and want to chat with our friends. You guys need to make this available for Chrome OS. It was supported before but it isn't now.

    Thank You!

  14. Be 'tuned' on a specific chat conversation, listening to the messages with no need to read

    Hello,
    It would be nice to have a feature that we could activate per chat, that will read out loud the conversations inside that chat....
    Sometimes we use team common chats, that have to many lines to read, and we loose precious time and info on those....
    So, if we could be 'tuned' on a specific chat conversation, listening to the messages, and only make an intervention , if we really need...
    This way, we would be able to follow all the discussions, and do not 'loose' time with the reading...

    Thanks

  19. Messages that can be seen only on the end device you lastly used.

    Hi Skype Team, a feature that will have conversation only on the device you chatted with someone will be much better
