  2. Suggestions

    (1) Please add "undo" actions for unwanted actions like accidentally deleting messages; wrong sent messages; etc.

    (2) Make a better distinction and marks for statuses. I suggest in color specific:


    • invisible mode: gray color with ? on it

    • offline mode: blue color with x mark on it

    • away mode: orange color with clock on it (as is)

    • busy mode: red color with "-" on it (as is)

    • active mode: green color with check mark on it

    • when inactive mode: yellow color with "..." on it

    if you think of a better marks much better, the above mentioned is just a…

  5. Invisible Statue as default status on start of the skype application

    Invisible as default status on the start of the application.

    Currently, it shows Active Status by default as and when the user starts Skype. but, I would recommend to keep it Invisible by default and let the user set the status of his/her preference.

    Being a working professional I can understand the urge of having "Me Time" to get ready yourself for work you need some time to prioritize your work and set the schedule while doing so unnecessary pings or calls at the start of skype from colleagues spoil the entire planning of yours.

  13. Usage statistics (number of calls, number of messages, etc)

    It would be great to have an overview of how much time a user spend on Skype?

    E.g., I would like to know how many Skype calls I do per week/month, how many messages I sent, etc.

  14. Ability to change status from active to in meeting when user is in call.

    When a person gets a call, his "active" status should be changed to some "In meeting" automatically so that other user trying to connect him or message should know that he is busy with another call or meeting.

  16. Skype Name Change

    Clearly I'm not the first person to suggest this (nor, likely, will I be the last), but people need to be able to change their Skype Name, full stop. I (or any other customers, for that matter) shouldn't have to sit here and explain to you my reasoning, but since this is a feature that has never been updated in my years of using Skype (as far as I'm aware), and Microsoft seems keen on ignoring the many, many requests for this feature, I will detail why users should be able to change their Skype Names.

    On the very first…

  18. Changing your Skype account

    Good afternoon. I have a Skype account for a very long time. Even before Microsoft bought Skype. After that I created a Microsoft account which is based on the same mail as Skype.
    Microsoft has created a new Skype account in its account.
    And now I cannot delete my new Skype account and change to my old Skype.
