    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

    Hi there! I just want everyone to know that we are still working on this one. There are many blockers for us, both technical and legal but it is in progress.

    This may happen when you don't use your credit for 180 days. It became inactive. You can simply reactivate it: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA10378/how-do-i-reactivate-skype-credit

    Hi there, thank you for the feedback. I’m sorry if some of your files were overwritten. I will share your feedback with Product Team. Meanwhile you can go to Settings – Messaging and set Auto-download to off to make sure it won’t happen again.

    Hi. Thanks for sharing this Idea! Cryptocurrency micropayments sounds really cool right :) Like any other leading technology company Microsoft is already testing blockchain.
    Although I don’t have any information about cryptocurrency adoption for Skype or any other MS product, please keep continue supporting this Idea. I will share it with our teams :)
    Note: I’ve edited the title of this Idea little bit so it fits to cryptocurrencies generally ;)

    Hi everyone, just wanna let you know that I shared this Idea with other teams. But keep in mind that Skype is just a small part of Microsoft and cryptocurrency integration needs to be accepted across the company which may take a while if we decide to do so.
    So feel free to use MS Feedback Hub if you wanna share this Idea even further.

    Have a great day :)
    Petr

    An older article, but still a nice example of how to use blockchain as a Service. In this case with Azure:

    Officially we support US to US number SMS. So you probably won't be able to receive SMS from non US numbers. I'm saying probably cause it may work for some of you, depends on your provider and country.
    It's not that we don't want to support it, but there is a lot of government regulations so it's just not possible right now.

    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.
