  2. Separate the group chats from individual chats

    Maybe separate the group chats from individual chats? It's kind of getting messy when individual and group chats are all under "Chats"

  9. Option for Deleting the message from both end. Example Unsend in Instagram.

    There should be an option for deleting msges from both end.

  11. After I sent a message, I used to be able to correct a misspelling, I can no longer do this. If I miss-type a word, I'm stuck with misspell

    Please allow spelling corrections right after they are sent, so they can be immediately fixed, Some of us are not facile on the keyboard,

  12. additional tabs in chat and groups

    additional tabs in chat and groups.

    For example:
    We have a contact or group where we discuss the project.
    The project is divided into several tasks that require separate discussion.
    It would be convenient to have additional chats within one group chat or contact. As an option, add them to the tab titled above

    This will significantly reduce the list of common chats and improve communication in each project.

  13. Copy and paste quotes in any conversations just like Skype Classic

    A unique feature in Skype Classic is the ability and efficient way to transfer quotes from one conversations to other, but in Skype Preview, we need to do a lot of clicks to forward a message. Time consuming as it is.

  15. how about unseen messages being automatically shown instead of me having to scroll down?

    I don't know if this is an already built-in feature, I hope it is, because if it's not, it seems to me like a no-brainer. I want skype to display the lastest messages in a conversation.
    When talking with someone, and this person sends me a message, it's not automatically displayed. I have to freaking scroll down. This is so annoying. It doesn't even display the new messages I type myself. How come nobody has fixed this issue. I send I new message and it's not displayed automatically, I get a new message and the same thing. I've had problems…

  17. Faster Way To Read Old Message

    I've been wanting to go back to the beginning of my conversation ( To Re-read, memories) but it takes for ever to scroll down, wish there was a way we can put in a date (Month) and it brings us to them conversation during that period!

  18. Bring back chat logs

    No one asked this company to remove chat logs and the fact you did with little regard for those who cares speaks volumes.

    The fact you deliberately made it hard to copy messages even if you rolled back a chat with a user speaks volumes.

    Plz bring these features back or to where they were. No real reason to block people out from something you had in the version before.

  19. Skype Message Search - Contains or Starts with text search instead of full text (word) match search

    Allow finding text (Ctrl +F) in a chat conversation to contain search rather than full word match search.

    "Searching in conversation (or chat) with text is taken as full-text match search and not contains or starts with search."

    For eg: If there is a word with name "message" in recent conversations, searching with a text like "mes" doesn't find or give any results, only if we search with complete text like "message" it finds or gives the results.

    This is a very necessary and valuable feature to have, which used to work in older versions of Skype.
