  5. image/file review

    Hi, whenever we are dropping some image or file in skype then it posts directly.

    So it should show preview than ask confirmation to send.

    web.whatspapp.com use the same thing and we love it.

    sometimes we choose the wrong file and we never get a chance to review it.

    So preview is better than send only.

  9. Group manager can pin the important message on the bottom of conversation

    My problem: I cannot follow the important message because of spam messages.

    My situation:
    The group manager send an important notify to us via Skype. I didn't get a chance to look through it.
    When I came back, the message is over.
    I had to scroll up, by pass a ton of message and I hate spamming. I cannot do anything to prevent spam message.

    My suggestion:
    Manager can pin the important message on the top of input message bar as one collapse bar. So I can open this message right away when I come back by clicking to collapse…

  15. Short Code SMS receipt support

    Banks and financial institutions use short code SMS to send authorization codes to complete online/mobile transactions. While my US mobile phone supports this, when I am travelling outside the US my US mobile does not always work, while my skype number does (whenever I have data or wifi of course).
    Skype now supports SMS but still doesn't receive short code SMS.
    This would be a wonderful feature (even if charged per message) to enable/disable per user.

  17. Possibility to change keyboard layout for already typed message

    For users with multi-language keyboards add possibility to transform keyboard-layout.
    E.g. I typed word 'учфьзду' but using a key (or hotkeys like 'CTRL+R') it will transform to word 'example'.

  19. Sms

    Allow Skype to be default SMS app on android using carrier SMS and MMS rather than Skype SMS. This could replace the stock messaging app completely but also encourage more users to use their Skype accounts if it is all integrated.
