Yes, I can send photos via Skype. And this is great.
But suppose I'm in the Photos Hub, see a photo and want to share it to someone. I need to open Skype, find the photo again and them send it.
I'd like to be able to use the standard Windows Phone "share" option.
When sharing a picture, I'd like to select Skype right from the list of apps that pops up.
Well i'm aware there is already a thread requesting file transfer and recently it got marked as Implemented, the problem is that the said implementation is far from what we ( users ) understand as file transfer, the implementation isn't even a proper photo sharing, as you can't save the photo and the photo is processed to reduce it's size, this is just shameful, really guys... i can't understand this logic.
So you guys can keep this thread open and write next to it Implemented when REAL file transfer is actually implemented, or you can delete this one and change the status of the original one accordingly ( accepted or what there should be ) .
It drives me CRAZY when I'm chatting with someone on my computer and I'm getting all the notifications about that chat on my phone and on my tablet (if it happens to be on, of course). Can't you somehow make the entire Skype "aware" that you are at your computer so there's no need to send notifications to your other devices at that moment? Please, do something about it.
Please either make the live tile follow the phones accent color or make it an option (as some developers have). I and many others prefer to have tiles that follow the phones live tile.

Now I have the top part of my start screen with all tiles that follow the phones accent color and a buttom part with all the apps that does not look good but is usefull, Skype is in this part.
And for the times when someone uses the new background features in WP 8.1 it would be nice if your live tile would allow for that as well. I only have two apps the follow the accent color that does not support the new background featues (still early days) but none of the ones that wants it's own color does support the new background feature (Skype, HERE, OneNote, Xbox).
The S and circles should be enough branding for Skype on Windows Phone, it would be more visible with suport for the phones accent color than it is without.
A setting needs to be added where calls will only be placed over wifi. I just burned through my months worth of data on a video call to my in-laws. The call went great, the quality was fine, but the fact that I used up most of a gig of my data plan just before going on a family vacation was not at all ok.
Please add a "wifi only" setting for Windows Phone Skype.
GDR 3.0 update finally enables custom notification sounds for apps. It would be awesome if Skype would use their own chat sound so we can know which app triggered a notification without even looking at the phone.
having a "sent delivered read" feature would be great as it would allow people to know if there message has got through to the person they sent it to, and on a mobile this is more important as you don't always know if you have a signal.
whatsapp, facebook and BBM are just a few examples that implement this well.
Just like on the desktop app where I can add more people to a call, or directly form a group and call, I wish this feature would be made available on the windows phone as well.
In the Skype chat text entry box, there is a small emoticon button that brings up a list of the Skype emoticons.
It uses up valuable space on the phone, and is completely redundant with the built-in operating system functionality. Please consider removing the option, and use the built-in emoji options that are available on the keyboard instead.
If compatibility is a problem, many of the common emoji can be mapped to the older Skype emoticons.
SMS to mobiles is a must.

Horizontal screen layout when typing in chat. Please create a separate idea for that. Send/Receive photos. Separate idea here
