Skype contact status not updating
Presence is a combination of availability and willingness to meet. In some applications it updates automatically based on events in your calendar, but with Skype for Mac, you need to update it manually.Click your image (or the generic human icon) at the top of the left column of the Skype window, then use the dropdown list just below your name to set your status manually.There's also a new emoji reaction feature available for quick responses to message or video. Soon we will be sharing with you the ability of a unified presence!I too have this problem (Windows) but I tested it by clicking on it, and receive a Skype pop-up message that I could not have a conversation with myself. (I suppose your privacy settings should be set to allow calls and/or chats from anyone (not just contacts) if you're hoping potential new clients will contact you via Skype.) [Edited at 2011-10-19 GMT]You've never met a CAT tool this clever!My browser tells me I have a "Skype Plug-In failure". Under Contact on my profile, the Skype option shows my username and a little gray box with a that says "I'm offline" (although I am indeed online and Skype is open). I found out the way how to put a Skype button to our profiles, but it still shows me offline when I am actually online... Translate faster & easier, using a sophisticated CAT tool built by a translator / developer.The current update also fixes the ability to delete contacts and conversations, and now supports using other apps while on a call, as well as a fix for notifications.As well as fixing up its mobile apps, Microsoft has introduced some of updates for Skype on Windows 10.
(See Myron Florin in the image above for an example.) To return to not showing a status message, remove all text from this area.
But it is expected soon, so I’ll hopefully be posting good news soon.
Thanks again for your patience, and most of all your support.
Also, when a meeting starts feedback from Exchange will switch your presence to “busy” for your meeting. -Warren HI again, and thanks for your patience in between updates for this request. Last month we shared how Skype for Business will converge into Microsoft Teams.
This week, we’ve shared some more information on exactly what features will come over.
When I click the "x" to close the gray area, which I think should change the "I'm offline" to "I'm online", the only thing that happens is my Skype box comes to the fore of my screen... I checked your profile, Allison, and you appear to me to be offline regarding SKYPE.

Accept jobs from clients who use SDL Trados, Memo Q, Wordfast & major CAT tools.
