  1. Allow changes to Skype Name (ID) to something actually useful

    A Skype Name (ID) of live:.cid.69a04ab0d0166282 is ridiculous to share with others for connecting in Skype. Please allow us to change this to something FRIENDLY others can recognize as referring to the account holder.

  3. Change usernames—transgender inclusive update

    Allow people to change their username. This feature is not great for trans people who change their names. I had to make a whole second account to change my name.

  9. Change Skype Name

    I want to be able to change my Skype Name to something more "memorable" than a bunch of letters and numbers, like it was possible before. I think not allowing to do that is not a smart strategy from Microsoft, given the huge amount of available services nowadays. People is choosing the easiest and quickest way to communicate, and personally, I'm not gonna use this live:.cid.61ed1c3e0a515403 "nickname" to give it to anyone, so I'll use Google Meets, Zoom or whatever instead.

  11. 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!

  12. 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…
