  1. Hey there, my stage name is "Jackson Hole Rose" & I really would like my Skype name to change to this. RosecLLc does not fit me any longer.

    Can you please change this? Use me as a test perhaps! I am a syndicated radio host & changing the username to JacksonHoleRose will be important for me to include Skype in my social channels. You can find me all over social media as JacksonHoleRose - your platform is the only one that won't let me change. If you aren't able to change it, I won't be using it. Thanks!

  2. Trans accessibility: "Skype Name" change

    Old Skype accounts let you pick your "Skype Name", though new ones generate a random code instead. People who are grandfathered in may be stuck with something legible though that they may not want.

    As an example, I made mine as a kid using my name. It turned out that I am trans and that name is now loaded with baggage I shouldn't have to be exposed to. Unfortunately, it's impossible to change or remove from the Microsoft Account that it is now connected to. It looks like the only way to be rid of it is to abandon the…

  13. How to get Spotify Premium free unlimited

    One of the most preferred applications, regarding its musical content is Spotify Premium. Despite the existence of other applications with powerful streaming capabilities, this one is cutting edge and constantly offers new updates on https://techtodown.com/spotify-premium-apk/.

    However, many users cannot access the paid services of this platform. For this reason, they look for other alternatives, such as the ones we present below. In fact, by getting the Premium version for free, every user will have their favorite song.

    Downloading any application requires certain guidelines to achieve a correct and smooth installation. Such is the case of this service, which requires…

  15. Change Status from Taskbar Preview

    In previous versions of Skype, you could change your status by pressing buttons on the preview popup from the Taskbar (hovering over the Skype icon in the taskbar on Windows.) I'm not really sure why this was removed, since it was a useful feature that allowed you to update your status quickly. Please return this feature

  19. Ability to change you Skype name

    It would be really great and useful if there is an option to update/change your Skype name. I am reluctant in giving away my current Skype and joining calls with it, because my Skype name is visible, thus making me not use Skype as much as i would like. Creating a new account would require a new email and a new phone number, which is not an option.
    I would really appreciate if I had the option to change my Skype name (one time would be enough).
