    Working on it  ·  Erin at Skype responded

    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.

    More info here – https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/skype_insiderms-skype_insnewsms/skype-insider-preview-8307641-read-respond-to-your/896846ad-9701-4f1d-9dee-640d95442b8e

    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 responsible for the design of Emoticons/ Emojis. Render the emojis with motion if they are sent via Skype to Skype like the Skype Emoticons are currently done. Render the emojis as they currently are on the market when sent via text message or Skype to text. This will make it smart like iMessage is when it comes to iMessage to iMessage communications.

    Since everything is connected via Microsoft Account Skype and Xbox should work together to create a Discord competitor to have one messaging solution that works across all devices. There could be a separate tab in a users Skype that allows for game chatting.

    Thank you all who voted for this request! We have recently made changes which should allow you to see your Username. On Skype 8 You can see it in Settings > Account & Profile under Skype Name field.

    In case you created an account using email or phone number you will see your username as live:emailid or live:uniqueidentifier.

    No exact release date is available but we are working on adding support to allow users to customize their user name. I’ll keep you posted as we move closer to release

    What's the purpose of a Skype name (ID)? That's old school. The new way to find somebody or add them is to search using their email address or phone number. Microsoft should get rid of Skype ID's and let people be found via their Xbox ID's instead.

    Some of the most consistent feedback we’ve received from you has to do with sounds and how you are notified about the goings on in Skype 8. We understand that all of these things are important for you and we are working on it.

    Thank you for your patience

    I would like this option because other services do this already. Make Skype a true phone replacement by adding this feature.

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request. We have thought this through and due to other high priority engineering that the product needs we decided to prioritize other user-requested items for now. Please keep continue supporting this Idea and we will review it again later. I’ll let you know if anything changes.
