    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

    It's now 2020 - can you please enable Skype name changes already?

    If you had just a single person working on this they would most probably have it ready for production within 90 days.

    For me this alone make Skype entirely unusable. My identity is sacrosanct, and Microsoft needs to start taking that to heart.
