Home » Microsoft could revamp Skype to show mutual contacts

Skype already shows users how many mutual contacts they have, but they want more. Many users think that Skype should not only display the number of mutual contacts, but actually show who the mutual contacts are.

In other words, users would like Microsoft to add more social-platform features to Skype.

So there is no way we can see who are these mutual friends?
Added a new friend on skype, apparently there’s a mutual friend but we cant figure it out who is it.

View Skype mutual contacts

The fact that Skype already displays the number of mutual friends means that Microsoft made the first step towards adding more social platform-like features to its instant messaging app.

This also means that the Redmond giant could enhance the mutual friends feature in the future so as to actually allow users to view someone’s contacts on Skype.

As a quick reminder, Microsoft updated Skype a few months ago to make it look more like Snapchat and Facebook. This proves once again that the tech giant is considering turning Skype into a social platform.

Of course, such a feature would affect users’ privacy. We’re sure that if Microsoft decides to allow users to find mutual friends on Skype, it will also add an option to disable this feature. Not all users will want others to be able to see their mutual contacts.

Microsoft has yet to confirm whether it will allow users to find mutual friends on Skype or not.

Now, do you think that adding a fully-fledged mutual friends feature to Skype is a good idea? Would you let other Skype users view your contacts on Skype? Let us know in the comment section below.
