Re: It shows I have one new message but there are no new messages in Messages window

I get the 1 runread message problem all the time on Skype for Android, and on Skype for Windows Desktop if I'm on a call, I can't get rid of the last unread message notifier until I'm off the call. Seems like it's a cross-platform issue with many variants, so I think we should look elsewhere for help rather than confining this to the iOS section.

Re: It shows I have one new message but there are no new messages in Messages window

This is still happening to myself and a few friends of mine.  We all have skype on our PC and our phones.  When on mobile the skype notification comes in and when I go to check the message nothing appears.  It is only until I shut the ap down completely and reopen it that I get the message...IF it feels like giving it to me.

I have the solution for this bug :tongue:! at least to quit the stupid notification...
Just right click on the "recent" tab and press "Mark all as read" and VOILA! the fake notification is gone.

This works, but, you will never know if you missed any messages...

I was able to get rid of the notification by deleting my IM history under pirvacy. But keep in mind that it deletes EVERYTHING.
