  8. messages

    The option to 'select all' messages in a chat would be very useful, rather than having to scroll through and select each message in turn. I use Skype for student tutorials and like to keep a copy for reference. This feature would make copying conversations so much easier. Thank you!

  9. Being able to record your own voicemessage for missed calls.

    It would be nice if you would be able to pre-record a voice message that people could hear if you miss taking their call.

  10. An unlimited monthly subscription for sms and calling features. 12 cents every sms is expensive.

    Unlimited SMS combined with calling is a must! Cant believe its not an option yet.

  11. Merge Skype and Phone SMS into one colour coded conversation

    Not of fan of having Skype conversations and SMS from my phone on two separate tabs. If Skype is smart enough to merge a phone contact and a Skype contact they can thread the two conversations into one colour coded one. We had this back in the day on WP and I loved it. I literally just spent two minutes trying to clear notification badges and for the life of me there was nothing to indicate that I needed to make another click to get to the unread conversation.

  13. Export chat easily

    Please enable an 'export chat' feature which can be easily shared on various platforms. Less stressful than copying messages one by one and pasting them elsewhere. Very time consuming!

    I think someone's already mentioned this before!!!

  16. I think it would be really nice and useful if we could have a "most used gifs", like we have with emoticons!

    Hello there, I think it would be really nice and useful if we could have a "most used gifs", like we have with emoticons! Sometimes we want to find a gif that we usually use and can't find it or it take a lot of time to find it, so it would be really nice if we had the option to have the most used gifs.

  18. Add more colors for messaging, prefferabely a color wheel.

    The colors for messaging are too bright and seem bland. Its pink, blue, yellow, light blue, orange(?), and black. It would be way better if we could select from a color wheel to get the exact color that we would all prefer!

  20. Deleting incoming messages

    We are able to delete outgoing messages, however not able to delete any incoming ones. Don’t understand why.
    We should be able to control what stays on our skype account. Also if we can mark up several messages for deletion would be ideal. Just like with the outgoing ones.

    Thank you.
