Sync conversations and chat

Sync conversations and chat between two Skype computers (Windows XP/SP3) and Windows Mobile 6.5 phone.

Is it possible?

How?

Do I need to upgrade from my free Skype?

Re: Sync conversations and chat

For chats that have more than 2 people in them this should happen automatically over time.

Re: Sync conversations and chat

I chat 1 to 1 using free Skype on two PCs and it does not transfer or sync.

Currently, this is not possible for 1 to 1 chats. The only method would be to move total history from 1 system to the other.

Re: Sync conversations and chat

I would rather say that it is possible but the behaviour is quite unpredictable. My own experience with several Skype devices is that the synchronization sometimes happens and sometimes not. Sometimes the chats are synchronized after few hours or even days and sometimes just after few minutes.

Well, if you set a 1 to 1 chat as unread, by right clicking on it. This was true.

 

Please see this: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA10649/Can-I-transfer-my-chat-history-from-one-computer-to-anot...

 

However, after testing this recently, as you say, not always.

 

That said, it could be alot of data if this was by default, say when using a device like a mobile that maybe you have limited data or limited free data before paying extra once you exceed that data.

Re: Sync conversations and chat

From your experience, do the syncs have to be on the same wireless device or can be at home and one in the office?

Re: Sync conversations and chat

Makes no difference. The devices may even be on different continents, but just Online at the same time.
