    Do you see nothing at all? All I see is an asterisk like snowflake show up after a sms is received. No values other than that in my medium size tile.

    Does it not mean the same thing though, just using a different word? Maybe I'm wrong but isn't the only other way to confirm something has been delivered/sent is if it's like whatsapp where it shows you they read your message.
    No, "sent" means, that the SMS was sent. "delivered" means that the other person has received the SMS. SMS can also be sent and not delivered, because other person currently has no network or similar.

    And just to be clear, we are talking about SMS messages sent with skype preview app, not skype messages.

    Even Microsoft Messaging does not use the "delivered" detail. Plus skype preview is under development and accepting feed back, so hold tight...

    I started using this yesterday and loving it. I just can't say how kick *** this is having text conversations on my Surface. I can send pictures as well. '

    You have to change your phone settings to skype as your default SMS messaging app and then your desktop skype preview works.

    It's all good, thanks. Out of the box my x3 does not display that, but that could be fw specific to your device as opposed to mine.

    Is it possible to change the notification sounds for Skype in Windows Mobile 10? Skype doesn't show up in the list of notifications in settings.

    My install shows up and it is able to be changed that way.

    normally once you send and receive a message in that app that seems to add the app to the list, then you can change settings,

    Hm did some research on the sent vs delivered (not skype specific) and it's interesting. I think semantically sent vs delivered is not that different in the english language (e.g. I sent the mail to bob vs I delivered the mail to bob). But when looking it up in relation to phone messages I found old threads where people on verizon had questions about a message being indicated as sent versus delivered and what the difference was. I've never encountered having to really distinguish the two (never been on verizon either), so this was an interesting thing to learn today!

    Yes, I know we are talking about SMS messages sent with skype preview app.

    Sent means successful delivery from your device to the network server. It does NOT mean the other person has received it, I know this for a FACT as I am a Mobile telecoms Manager. Other person might have their phone OFF but you can still send to them, they will pick up their messages from the network once they switch on again, you need to have delivery reports ON for confirmation of delivery meaning that message has been sent to that device and received by that device.

    One peculiarity- People who are in my regular people hub, but not on Skype don't show up with names while texting. I can only see their numbers in the Skype app.

    Been using Skype Preview SMS (can't see where to read version) on Win 10 PC and Phone. Works really well most of the time! Typical time to send message from PC is about 2s. Occasionally buggy but these should improve with time.

    I've been experiencing some syncing issues lately with my surface book. For some reason the texts I send out from my L950xl are not syncing. So I'll receive messages fine and they come at the same time on my surface book and L950xl, but if I'm out and am sending texts then later come back home my sent messages don't get synced up. Things were working relatively fine up until the last 4-5 days, so I'm not sure if it's a back-end issue?

    To get this thread moving again, I've been using Skype now for a few weeks for my texting and have zero complaints. Its working well and think MS has something good going here. Not a complaint but kind of looking forward to future updates with more features.

    mine stopped working but is back now. there is an option in settings now to get a code on the non-phone and enter the code on the phone. On a previous version this didn't seem to be working but all looks good now. (I had to refresh the code to make it work)

    Hm..problem is that I don't get a code where it should be. I tried reinstalling the app but still the same, I just get a screen like this but without the code or refresh code button or anything. windows-10-sms-sync.png
