  3. Skype Names Must Become Modifiable for Old Accounts

    It is dangerous for some people (e.g., transgender) to have their real name included in their Skype Name. Please, allow us to have our Skype Names changed to a RANDOM string of letters and numbers instead. You have already been doing this to the more recent account creators.

  5. Sign Out on All Devices

    Most other social medias have a way of signing out on every device, preventing potential fraud from lost devices.

  8. Music status

    Like to where we can connect our Spotify accounts to our Skype accounts, if we do so people can see what we listen too (take a look at discord!) Me and my partner used that as a way to see how the other is feeling but since we’re limited to Skype at the moment we cant do that and it kinda sucks. Please take this into consideration it would really help!

    STOP MAKING ME CHANGE MY PASSWORD. I ALREADY CREATED A NEW ACCOUNT AFTER I FORGOT MY PASSWORD SINCE YOU IDIOTS FORCED ME TO CHANGE IT 10000 TIMES ALREADY AND WONT LET ME CHANGE IT BACK TO AN OLD PASSWORD. YOUR SECURITY AND YOUR MOTHERS TOO. ITS A SKYPE ACCOUNT I DO IELTS NOT A MILITARY ACCOUNT I USE TO SHARE MILITARY INTELLIGENCE. . MY PROFESSOR HAS ALREADY AGREED TO SWITCH TO ZOOM SINCE ITS NOT MADE BY RETARDS. I HOPE YOUR FAMILY DIES IN A CAR CRUSH. (IMAGINE HOW FRUSTRATED I AM TO TAKE TIME TO WRITE THIS THINGS )…

  12. Change Skype ID

    Allow the option to change Skype ID just like Xbox Gamertags, they can be changed to anything and then autogenerated numbers are assigned after so the Skype ID can always be changed if it ever gets compromised by internet trolls.

    I currently can't use Skype because of this, I need to change my Skype ID to protect my personal information from the internet, and as a result I'm not able to buy minutes or a phone number for Skype if I can't use the account.

    I literally have money waiting for you, make the feature happen and it's yours.

  13. Allow nicknames or additonal name for self

    Allow additional name for self as some people have used undesirable name in microsoft account so it gets transferred to Skype name . So friends can more easily find them in Skype.

  15. Not able to set up account with custom Skype ID

    I'm really bummed out that I can't create an account for my internet biz/inc. The system just autogenerates a long live skype ID profile which isn't option for my business. I'm forced to find a different chat option. Skype should go back to pre migration days and allows custom Skype IDs.

  17. Skype Name

    I hope there is an option to change the skype name (live:) address or to personalize it for once instead of getting the address on the email.
