Add Private Conversations in Windows Store Skype (Version 12).7 votes
Ability to send a own contact to another contact. As a user of skype I would like to send one of my contacts to another person so he/she can add the same contact pretty fast. Searching for contacts within the Skype search is pain in the ass. So this would significantly increase productivity.60 votes
This is coming soon!
Apart from the Win32 app, it is literally impossible to use Skype to send an SMS to an arbitrary mobile number. Fix this.40 votes
Hi – We’d love more details about your experience here.
If you have Skype credits you do have the ability to send SMS by going to the profile of the person you want to SMS and choosing “Send SMS”.
You can also send an SMS to an arbitrary number from the dial pad by entering the phone number and selecting the SMS button to the left of the call button.
Additionally we are adding the ability to SMS via your Android phone with SMS Connect, which recently rolled out to insiders. Keep an eye out for this feature coming to all builds in the next few months.
End to end encryption. Self destructive messages, ability to stop users from taking screenshots in secret chats, etc..43 votes
We recently released end-to-end encryption via the Private Conversations feature Brian mentioned below and would love any feedback about how you use it, what you think of it, and what you’d like to see us do next.
Please add your feedback here for features you’d like to see in Private Conversations.
And make it work more reliably while you're at it.
Skype is of zero value to me without this. I only know one other person who uses Skype for other than SMS.78 votes
SMS via Skype is one of the areas we’re working on improving.
We’ve recently launched SMS Connect to Insiders which enables you to connect your Skype desktop client to your Android phone so that you can send and receive SMS from your phone on your Desktop.
Skype also has the ability to send SMS messages to contacts if you have Skype credits.
Please let us know if there’s additional functionality you’re looking for in this area. Otherwise, stay tuned for SMS Connect arriving in the Release builds soon.
Make Skype a full sms app that can replace or work along side a stock messaging app like WhatsApp does
Skype could be the best sms app but you need to allow it to especially work on phones and connect to a desktop PC via some web link. Google messenger and whatsapp both have this option why can't Microsoft allow this. Use Microsoft authenticator easy way better than a quarter code.
Skype has the potential but is slipping behind all the other apps because of the lack of this feature206 votes
Thanks for the feedback! I’m happy to say that we’re working on this feature request and it is making its way through our testing rings. I’ll keep you posted as it moves closer to release.
Almost needless to say, Skype 7 had no such limitations.606 votes
We have been listening to your feedback. In 8.33+ you can see all the results found for your message search. No more 20 limit.
We’re still working on a solution for the 6 months limitation. I’ll post an update when it’s available.
