    Announcement: New site design for Microsoft Community

    In July, Microsoft will roll out the first of ongoing site improvements aimed to modernize Microsoft Community and help customers get the most out of their community experience.

    • During the roll out period, you may see the old or new site design depending on your location

    • We expect the roll out to finish by 31 July

    Note: Past private message conversations will not move to the new site design. Please save any private messages you would like to keep.

     Learn more about the upcoming site improvements in this thread.

    Thank you for being part of Microsoft Community!


Welcome to the New Skype Community on Microsoft Community

Allen[S] started on

The Skype Community has now moved to the Microsoft Community. 

Getting started

If you currently login to Skype or the existing community with your Skype name then we would encourage you, when you first login in to the Microsoft community, to open a private window and use the private window to login to the community. To use the Microsoft Community with your Skype name, you will need to upgrade your Skype name to a full Microsoft account by either converging your skype name and your Microsoft account or creating a new Microsoft email address to attach to your Skype name.

For more guidance on Converging accounts see this FAQ.

You can find guidance on how to post using the participate button above and the Microsoft Community team have put together a great FAQ on everything from joining a discussion to managing your profile and I would encourage you to read it before you post.

For a quick start see the Getting started guide.

By utilising the Microsoft community, we can plug the feedback from community directly into the product teams in Microsoft, helping to surface your comments, votes and ideas into the heart of our engineering decisions internally.

You will also be able to participate in other Microsoft communities with the same profile.

The Skype community is a place to get help when you encounter a problem, tell us about things you would like to see in the client or just chat about topics of interest. To keep everyone in the community safe and to prevent unwelcome behaviour we have published a code of conduct, which you agreed to when you signed up, you can view this at any time here.

On behalf of the entire Skype Community Team I would like to welcome you and look forward to your contribution to our community.
