          This is unacceptable that you have not implemented this enhancement yet. What is the point of allowing conversations on different devices if I lose all chat/conversation history. This is not how people work.

          I encourage the skype for business team to improve on the synchronization of conversation on all devices. You are not only the good team, but great leader in this business!

          Right now I have a phone, PC, and Mac and my message threads are not gathered. Each message with the same person is a new individual entry, even within minutes. It's not a new conversation either. It is silly that I am logged in as the same user on all 3 devices, but the history of my Skype messages is not captured in one location or synced across the 3 devices. Please add this basic feature.

          Chances of getting this feature anytime in the near future? I see the idea was posted in 2015...

          Hi Team,

          I personally felt and want you to consider the below features.

          1. Conversation sync for all contacts(Eg: When I click any contact in skype for business, it should show me the recent previous conversations.

          2. Sync the conversation across devices like Desktop, Android & IPhone.

          3. Improvise the Notification service in Android app.

          Note: Google Hangout is impressing all by having all the above, please integrate in Skype as well.

          Regards,
          Somesh

          This feature should be there, currently it seems like we are using a broken app for conversation.

          using Skype for personal communication was so easy and flexible however as a new grad and new into the work force its made life very painful when you donot find features that you find on Skype for personal use. its a shame that skype isnt revolutionising according to time.

        • Tuyen Huynh commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

          I think this feature is required. We are in a time for multiple devices but why is not Skype4Biz yet worked well on that yet? It is very bad now.

          What I really don't get is that messages sync on regular Skype...but you don't have the same functionality for the business app?

        • Liz commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

          The point of having the chat app on my phone is for when users message me on their laptop and I am away from my desk, I would still be able to answer them.

          How is this not possible on the Skype for business phone app?

          The chat needs to sync on multiple devices like all other existing messaging apps : Google hang out, Facebook messaging, Microsoft team . This is ridiculous

        • Ryan Yanez commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

          Extremely inconsistent at best. This should have already received the attention needed by now. 2018 employees need to be able to access UC on multiple platforms.

          What century is this? Come on Skype team, get it together. I like Microsoft overall, but you've really dropped the ball with Skype. Bought a best in business product and turned into "bleah", average at best.

        • Matt commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

          Glad it's not just me, but these messages go back years!

          This really needs to be resolved PLEASE!!

        • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

          Please fix Skype for business message sync between devices. Every other chat program can do it. Having half conversations spreda between a computer and phone is a major deal-breaker

        • marci commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

          please please please. This is a dealbreaker for me, as I work in a very mobile way, sometimes on phone, sometimes on desktop. It is standard in all other IM-like messaging systems I use. I wouldn't even use skype because I prefer the others so much more, but a handful of people I have to communicate can only use this.
